Water soluble film/stabilizer
Polyvinyl alcohol (PVA)
Use this as a transfer film for embroidery. Draw directly on the Solvy, then embroider your design through the film and when completed, wash it away leaving the embroidery on the original fabric base. It’s just like magic.
In a more traditional use, it can be used as a topping on knits, terry cloth, fleece and other textured fabrics and creates a smooth embroidery surface to give clearer embroidery. It also means you can sometimes use less stabilization on the back so the fabric retains its natural drape.
