is the foundation for good embroidery...
Lay a proper foundation!
Laid Non Woven
Much like a high quality paper, fiber is dispersed in
a solution. A screen rises and the solution dries (alluvial
formation) yielding a multi directional and uniform
nonwoven. These are made in different weights. The idea
being to always use only ONE layer.
Also Called Chemical Bond - The same solution as with
Carded Saturates - Only dispersed randomly. Note the
uneven quality, holes in saturate (thick and thin spots)
Also called chemical bond - the fibers are raked or
combed (carded) in one direction (m.d.) The fibers are
then impregnated with a binder. It stretches in one
direction & tears in one direction. You will need
2 pieces cross wise to achieve proper tension for embroidery.
