I purchased some of that and like it for the tear a way properties. Any little fibers should not be a problems any more than all the lint in dryer from cotton fabrics and should even be less due to the rest of it being captured in the heavy bobbin thread layer.
I like this product for towels. The wash away tear away is great for anything that will be washed a lot. Yes it may not be perfect at the time of give away, however it will look great after a couple washings.
This stabilizer is made for ITH quilt blocks. After the blocks are assembled and washed what remains is soft and becomes part of the batting.
Thank for letting me know. I'm a quilter at heart too. Now I'm going to try that! I was wondering if it wouldn't "wad up" inside the quilt block. Maybe I'll experiment with different densities of quilting and see what happens.
Penny, I also would not use it again. Just not worth it
I have a roll of tear away that sounds a bit like that. It is not washaway though and was quite expensive too. I just use it on projects where the stabiliser will not be visible from the front and it is not enclosed that way after a few washes it will hopefully have disappeared.
Plumbing bill in your future? Don't wash too much of it at a time!
If you tearaway right back to the stitching there shouldn't be any problems with the laundering. Any left would be under the stitching.
Oops yes should have clarified to tear away the excess first. The little fuzzies left behind will wash away after a while. LOL
I did a sample and found that tearing it away from the stitching is a chore. It's one of those things that sound easier said than done.
