SULKY FILMOPLAST is a self-adhesive, tear-away stabiliser that is ideal for use on items that cannot be hooped or are too small to fit in a hoop.Any item, particularly small items, can be embroidered easily by finger-pressing them onto SULKY FILMOPLAST. It eliminates hoop marks on fabrics like sweatshirt fleece, Ultrasuede, velvet, brushed velour, brushed denim, silk, flannel, knitted fabrics and caps. It also easily stabilizes woven and knit materials while improving stitch images. FILMOPLAST is therefore the epitome of stabilzer versatility.
