Woven Iron-on Interfacing, Extra Heavyweight, Black
Approx. 90 gsm
Extra heavyweight interfacing is ideal for very heavy garments like coats, costumes and some tailoring. It is designed as a stabiliser to stop fabric from stretching and warping. It is also a great way to add lots of bulk to a fabric if you want to use it for a heavier garment. For example a textured cotton or linen can be given the body of a wool suiting and then used in a jacket or coat.
This interfacing has a bit of stretch, making it suitable for knit fabrics as well. Just keep in mind that your fabric will only be as stretchy as the interfacing after they are fused together (5% 2-way stretch).
Tips for use:
Cut 2- 5mm smaller than your pattern piece on all sides.
Lay glue side (rough side) down on your fabric piece, put a pressing cloth over the top. Place (no steam) iron on top with firm pressure for 10-16 seconds. If the pattern piece is bigger than your iron plate, lift and place your iron this way until all parts of the interfacing have been fused.
