HOW TO SELECT THE RIGHT PELLON® INTERFACING

    • Interfacing shapes, supports & stabilizes detail areas of a garment – collars, facings & waistbands. Choosing the right interfacing is key to a garment’s appearance & performance. This guide will help identify the best choices for your project.

    • Most Pellon® interfacings & craft materials are nonwoven. Nonwovens are made directly from fibers bonded together to form a fabric. Nonwovens do not have a grain. They have little or no shrinkage & will not ravel. They can be washed or dry cleaned. Other types of Pellon® interfacings are woven, knitted or weft-inserted.

    • Interfacing may be fusible or sew-in. Fusibles have an adhesive on one side or both sides that is activated by your iron. Hand held steamers will not bond interfacing to fabric.

    • The choice between a fusible & a sew-in interfacing depends on the fabric, the degree of firmness desired & personal preferences. Fusibles are great time savers. They’re easy to work with & are compatible with most fabrics. They make a fabric slightly crisper than sew-in interfacing of comparable weight.

    TIPS & TROUBLESHOOTING:

    1. All Pellon® fusibles include complete instructions. Pre-wash the fabric to pre-shrink it & to remove finishes that prevent fusibles from adhering. Check the package instructions. Nonwoven interfacings do not need to be pre-shrunk; woven products do.
    2. Always test a swatch of fusible interfacing before using it for a project. Iron temperatures can vary, so a test will help determine the proper setting to use. Use a press cloth.
    3. If the fusible test swatch looks wrinkled, the fabric may be shrinking. Wash fabric again or use a lower fusing temperature. If the interfacing is too heavy, use a lighter weight or a sew-in style.
    4. Fusibles are meant to be permanent. If you want to remove fusible interfacing from fabric & it is not completely fused, reheat the area, pressing lightly. While warm, gently peel up.
    5. To remove fusible residue from fabric, iron with a dryer sheet or use a spot remover made for glue & adhesive.
    6. Use a hot iron cleaner to remove any fusible residue on the iron. Follow package directions.
    7. How to tell which is the fusible side: Most products have a dot adhesive. You can see or feel small dots on the rough side. If the product has a coated adhesive, the fusible side will be shiny.
