E-Zee Cut Super Hefty 3.0 ounce is a heavy weight, Cut Away stabilizer. It has a lofty, super soft hand that is great for high stitch counts and high density designs . This is ideal for full jacket backs and full front sweatshirt designs. It is a backing that hoops well, helps to provide crisp designs, and will maintain its shape after repeated washing. Use with heavy fleece, knits and stretchy fabrics. Cut Away backings should be used for unstable and knit fabrics.
How to use Cut Away stabilizers
Cut a piece from a roll or use a piece of pre-cut to fit your hoop size. Hoop by placing the backing underneath the garment.
Embroider the design and remove the embroidered item from the hoop. Trim the excess backing with a sharp pair of scissors or shears, leaving approximately ¼” around the outside of the design. Rounding the corners instead of leaving them square or pointed will avoid curling later on.
To avoid nicking the fabric when trimming away the backing: Hold the backing while trimming and let the garment drape. Be sure to face it so you can see both the edge of the design and the fabric while you are trimming.
