Sew-In Interfacing for Mid/Heavywt-20''W x 30yds
Sew-In Interfacing For Mid/Heavy-Weight Fabric 20"W, 30 Yds, White -- A non-woven, sew-in interfacing for midweight to heavyweight fabrics. 100% polyester. Nonwoven. This interfacing is made of man-made fibers bonded together to form a paper-like sheet. Stable nonwovens (no stretch) are best for medium- to heavyweight fabrics with a slight to very crisp hand. Nonwovens with a crosswise or all-direction stretch can be used for soft to moderate shaping. Although the majority of today's interfacings are fusible, there are times when a sew-in interfacing is the preferred choice. Use sew-ins on fabrics with a crushable texture--such as seersucker, velvet, fake furs or mohair. Also use sew-ins on vinyls, sequined or beaded fabrics, and those with a water- or stain-repellant finish. Some fabrics can't withstand the heat (metallics) or are too densely woven to be fused properly (wool gabardine). Traditional tailoring methods also call for the use of sew-ins. Organza, organdy and batiste can also be used as sew-in interfacing.
