Use E-Zee Weblon No Show Backing When Embroidering On Performance Wear
E-Zee Weblon No Show is a low profile, soft and sheer Cut Away backing available from the E-Zee Backing & Topping® division of Madeira USA. Made of 100% embossed nylon, it provides low visibility, and was designed specifically to be used on performance wear and moisture wicking fabrics. A single piece will work for designs of up to 8,000 stitches. For larger designs you may want to use two pieces. And for particularly stretchy items, try this: first lay down a piece of 1.0 oz. E-Zee Tear Lightweight; then place a piece of E-Zee Weblon No Show over that, and finally the garment. Embroider the design. Tear away the E-Zee Tear® Lightweight, then cut away the excess E-Zee Weblon No Show. The result is a low profile, no-show backing, with no risk of producing a "badge effect."
You can get E-Zee Weblon No Show in pre-cuts and rolls, in various sizes. It is available in white, black and beige, in weights of 1 to 1.5 oz., plus a fusible version that is 1.65 oz. For those with eco-friendly concerns, E-Zee Weblon No Show is free from all formaldehyde. There is even a flame resistant Weblon Mesh, available in pre-cuts and roll, that is1.6 oz.
