Wet N Stick Logo

This tearaway stabiliser is coated with a water activated, silicone based adhesive. It is an alternative to pressure sensitive "sticky" paper products and/or messy spray adhesives. Most home embroiderers have at some point experienced problems with peel and stick products gumming up their needles as well as the designs registration not lining up correctly. This happens because they mistake "paper" for stabiliser. The main differences between Wet N Stick and these products are that Floriani's is a stabiliser not paper and the adhesive doesn't get sticky residue on the needle. The adhesive on Wet N Stick can also be re-activated up to six times for easy re-positioning of garments. This product is also available in a black or white cut away version for times when you need to stick down a bulky stretch garment such as a sweatshirt of fleece pullover. It is important to use a "cut away" stabiliser on non-stable fabrics such as knit for the best embroidery results.

  • Perfect for bulky items such as towels, robes and blankets
  • Use for fabrics and garments that get "hoop burn"
  • Use for hard to hoop items such as napkin corners, collars, cuffs, etc.
  • Tears away clean from around your embroidery design
  • One layer will support around 8,000 stitches on an average size, well digitized design
  • The adhesive can be re-activated several times

To use Floriani Wet N Stick® Tear Away or Cut Away:

  1. Hoop one layer of the stabiliser, adhesive side up. Be sure the product is taut within the hoop.
  2. Apply a drop of water onto the stabiliser in each corner of the hoop as well as one in the center using a sponge, foam paint brush or envelope sealer (recommended, available at office supply stores). Remember that minimal water is required to activate the adhesive.
  3. Using the tip of your finger, smooth the drops of water over the surface of the stabiliser. You will feel the adhesive become tacky almost instantly.
  4. Press the garment into place and smooth out any wrinkles.
  5. Embroider your design. 600 stitches per minute or less is recommended. *Tip - If the design is denser than 8,000 to 10,000 stitches or if it is a poorly digitized design (too many stitches for designs size), float one layer of Floriani Medium Tearaway under the hooped item for each additional 10,000 stitches for added support! (This applies to the cutaway version as well. Use a max stitch count of 14,000 and float the Medium Tearaway if your design goes over this amount.)
  6. Once the design is complete, remove the hoop from your embroidery machine and tear or cut away the Wet N Stick® stabiliser. If the adhesive is holding on to the garment, reactivate it by applying moisture at the glue line. Once the adhesive is re-activated it will release the garment.
