Stabilisers, on the other hand, are materials that prevent distortion or stretching of fabrics during sewing or embroidery. They are instrumental when working with delicate or stretchy fabrics or machine embroidery. Stabilisers come in many types, including tear-away, cut-away, and wash-away varieties. Tear-away stabilizer is a paper-like material that is removed after sewing or embroidery is complete. Cut-away stabilizer is a heavier material that is trimmed away after complete sewing or embroidery. Wash-away stabilizer dissolves in water, leaving no residue behind.

Interfacings and stabilisers are essential for achieving a professional-looking finished product in sewing and other textile crafts. Adding structure and stability to fabrics can help ensure that your finished project looks and wears as intended.
