Soluweb

SewNancy | Posted in Equipment and Supplies on

Burda pattern mag mentions a product called Soluweb that apparently irons on and washes out. They suggest ironing it on between two layers of hem on knits tokeep them from stretching when sewn. Any one know the American name for this product and a source ?

    Hello Nancy,

    I was very interested by what you wrote about Soluweb, so I looked for it on Internet and I found it: http://www.vlieseline.de/English/Products/Interfacings/Creative_Range/Soluweb.htm. As you can check yourself, it's a water soluble stabilizer but it's not fusible. Too bad! Can you let me know in what Burda magazine (issue?, page/pattern?) you read about it? Thanks in advance.

      Sol-u-web is the English name, and yes, it is a fusible--(the website Lise-Laure provided refers to it as a "temporary adhesive" after being pressed). 

      I purchased some from Debbie Glenn from Love and Stitches http://www.loveandstitches.com/   after a class demonstration, however, I don't see it on her web site now.  I had the impression it is distributed by Pellon, but can't find my package to double check.

        You are right: I was wrong - I have read too fast - and that's good news. I will thus try to locate a Soluweb dealer here in Switzerland.

    Yes Sol-U-Web is made by Pellon.  If you do a google search by typing in "Pellon Sol-U-Web you will find several sources.  I noticed that Fabric.com has it.  This is a site that I have frequently ordered from and find to be very reliable.
