Fusible: Polyamide/ Viscose

 

 



 

Soft to touch, with slight brushed surface.  Glued backing, which will fuse with heat. Woven - no stretch except on bias.  Samples not available, but there is a one meter minimum.

Recommended: always test fusibles on your face fabrics for durability, wash and glue push through.

Viscose is an artificial fibre, made from wood pulp.

To make viscose, wood pulp is treated with toxic chemicals such as caustic soda and sulphuric acid, but the raw material is sustainable.  A much more ethical alternative to anything else we've been able to find!
