It also won't gum up needles to avoid thread breaks, needle breaks, or damage to garments. It is machine washable and dry-cleanable. Once it is heat-applied, the stabilizer creates a permanent bond with almost any fabric. Available lengths include a 40" roll in 25-, 50-, or 100-yard lengths; a 20" roll in 25-, 50-, or 100-yard lengths; and 8" X 8" squares in packages of 250 sheets.
