Fusible Knit Interfacing
This Fusible Knit Interfacing is a lightweight, synthetic, knitted interfacing, with a clear, heat sensitive glue already applied to the back. The Interfacing fuses easily to most fabrics with just the heat of an iron. Our Fusible Knit Interfacing is an easy to use fusible, for stabilising the lower bra cups, fabric straps, and/or the centre bridge area. This Interfacing is very soft against the skin and is not itchy.
Our interfacing is 58-60″ (147-150 cm) wide with mechanical give in the crosswise direction. Available in White and Black.
The Fusible Knit Interfacing is available in both White and Black. Choose the colour that best co-ordinates with your outer fabric.
This is a lightweight, knitted interfacing, with some mechanical give in the crosswise direction. We use this interfacing for stabilising the lower bra cups, fabric straps and/or the centre bridge area, particularly when using a stretch or thinner fabric. However, this Fusible Knit Interfacing is also used for any other garments that require a bit of light stabilisation. Some bra-makers also fuse this fabric to the back of their favourite paper patterns, to give them more stability and strength.
How to Use:
This Interfacing is very easy to use and is made to be applied easily with your home iron. As with any task that involves an iron, please test on a scrap first! You will also want to experiment with the direction of the fusing before fusing your final pieces.
We recommend using a non-stick pressing sheet underneath, to protect your ironing board or pressing surface from the glue. We also recommend using a silicone iron shoe, to protect the surface of your iron from glue (it also helps protect all of your fabrics from marks from the iron). To test, cut a piece of the fabric you will be fusing. Cut an equal sized piece of the Interfacing. Be sure to place the glue side (rough side) together with the wrong side of the fabric. Begin by setting your iron to a lower temperature and press for a few seconds. When set at the proper temperature, the glue should melt quickly. If the fabric is not fused, gradually turn up the heat and press until you find the right temperature. The interfacing fabric itself can melt or scorch if the temperature is too high!
Once you have determined the proper temperature and have finished your testing, you are ready to fuse! Cut the fusing the same shape as the fabric you want to fuse and press!
