‘Solvy’ is technically a ‘washaway’, as it is a water-soluble material. Solvy differs as it appears plastic and transparent, and has a filmy thin texture. Solvy is the ideal topping for fabric and materials with a pile – towels, polar fleece garments, etc. The softer and bulkier the fabric, the easier stitches tend to disappear into the material resulting in unsightly embroideries – so use Solvy to combat this. It is not ideal for lacemaking, as it is not as thick/stiff, and is likely to tear under the strain.
