Tearaway Backing

Tearaway backings are often described as crisp and paper-like – or can be thicker and more cardboard-like.   Tearaway backing is designed to “tear – away” from the embroidery stitching after the work is completed, and is a good all-round option for non-stretch fabrics.  Care should be taken when tearing away the excess backing – use slow and deliberate motions to make the tear as close to the embroidery, and as clean as possible.  Any remaining tearaway backing will generally disintegrate over a few washes.
