Cut-Away & Fabric Types
Choose Kimberbell Cut-Away when stitching on stretch fabrics such as:
- Twill weaves
- Spandex blends
- Most wearables
- Other stretchy fabrics
Also choose Cut-Away for projects where you want stabilizer to remain and give continued reinforcement. For example, use Kimberbell Cut-Away for Mug Rugs, Noel’s Quilted Stockings, Happy Hoop Decor, Keepsake Clasp Purses, Annika’s Throw Pillows, and more! Kimberbell Cut-Away softens after washing.
Tip: While Cut-Away is always used for fabrics with stretch, it’s also used with other fabrics for a variety of projects!
Cut-Away & Designs
Kimberbell Cut-Away comes in many weights:
- Ultralight Mesh Cut-Away for lightweight fabrics and designs with a low stitch count (12,000 stitches or less)
- Light Mesh Cut-Away for lightweight fabrics and designs with a low stitch count (12,000 stitches or less)
- Medium Cut-Away for medium-to-high stitch count designs (approximately 15,000 to 25,000 stitches)
- Heavy Cut-Away for designs with a heavy stitch count (think 25,000 stitches or more)
Tip: The more stitches in the design, the heavier the stabilizer should be. Did you know that a medium weight Cut-Away can support as many stitches as a heavy weight Tear-Away?
