Tear-away tears easily and neatly away from stitched areas. Ideal for use with stable, non-stretch fabrics like cotton, denim, and terry cloth, tear-away comes in a variety of weights. Use a light tear-away for light density designs and heavier tear-away for designs with medium to heavy stitch densities. Tear-away is perfect for projects where you don’t want the stabilizer to remain! If you’re wondering if a stabilizer is tear-away or cut-away (they can look alike), then do the tear test: if it rips easily, it’s tear-away. Tear-away also comes as “soft” or “firm.” Soft is more like cloth and is fuzzier when it tears. Firm is more paper-like and tears crisply.
