A tear-away is the backing of choice for most embroiderers using stable fabrics. Tear-away material makes removing excess backing faster, cheaper, and safer than using backing that needs to be cut with scissors. We offer tear-away backings made of viscose, polyester, cotton and material mixes, allowing you to select with regard to your individual requirements. All our tear-aways have short fibres, making them easily torn in any direction. New in the range are CMX and SMX fusible tear-aways, which are suitable for lighter and medium-heavy woven fabrics, such as business shirts, silk or acetate.
