Item details

Printable, Water-Soluble Fabric-Like Paper for Embroidery and Felt Projects
One package of twelve sheets
Sheets are 8 1/2 x 12 inches - the size of printer paper

This stuff is fabulous! A real game changer for so many stitchable projects.
Use this paper in your printer.
Print PDF patterns directly onto this paper.
One side is thin textured fabric-like paper that is lightly sticky.
There is a backing paper that peels off before applying the textured side to wool felt or other fabric.

Sulky (the manufacturer) calls it a 'stabilizer', but to me, that implies that you leave it on a project in order to give it body or stiffness. I prefer to call it a dissolve-able paper that aids greatly in creating neat, precise embroidery designs.

To use, just print your PDF pattern pieces onto the paper,
Loosely cut out the designs,
Peel off the backing paper,
Press the fabric-like printed paper onto wool felt***,
Stitch right through the design,
Soak in cool- to barely-warm water for a few minutes,
The fabric-like piece dissolves like magic leaving your embroidery stitches intact!

I absolutely love it for Larissa Holland's Twelve Days Ornaments patterns, and Larissa highly recommends it.
I've even used this Stick 'n Stitch paper for my own designs by drawing directly onto it.
You can also trace patterns onto the paper using a light box.

*** If using this paper on wool felt, I highly recommend soaking the wool felt FIRST
in cool- to barely-warm water for a few minutes to allow the wool to shrink just the tiniest little bit.
Squeeze excess water out of wool felt and let dry.
Apply the printed Sulky Stick 'n Stitch paper, embroider.
Soak off the adhesive paper, and no further shrinkage will occur.

Yes it is. This quality wool felt can be washed.

Hand-washing results in the least amount of shrinkage (5-10%). To hand wash, place in a sink of cool water. Use a small amount of liquid dish soap. Soak for a few minutes, drain sink, rinse with cool water, roll in a towel to remove excess water and air dry.

Hot water and laundry soap in the washing machine followed by a hot dryer will cause 20-30% shrinkage. Also, the texture will change. The felt becomes thicker and bumpier; not 'pilly', but with more texture. It will no longer be the smooth felt that you started with. It can be ironed out a bit, but will remain thicker.

Please contact me for additional washing details and results for specific applications.
Oh heck no!!!

It's a fact that sheep produce wool. But there are hundreds of different breeds of sheep. Each breed produces a different type of wool fiber. Some sheep's fiber is soft and silky (like Merino), some is stiff and coarse (like sheep from Nepal). Some is curly or thick or short or long. Also, processing methods and types of dye can make a very big difference in the finished product.

No, all 100% wool felt is not created equal.
