Embellish Iron Away Clear Topper
Low Temperature – Heat Removable Topping/Stabilizer
Embellish® Iron-Away Clear Topper is for use on the top surface of high pile fabrics such as: burlap, cuddle, fleece, low-pile fake fur, terry cloth, towels, velvet, and textured fabric. Embellish® Iron-Away Clear Topper is used on top of the item in the embroidery hoop. It keeps the thread elevated and prevents it from sinking into the fabric fiber. Embellish® Iron-Away Clear Topper acts as a “spacer” on top of the fabric, so the thread remains raised on top of the material. This topper remains embedded under the thread and prevents the fabric nap from poking through after multiple wash and dry cycles. It is also perfect for keeping decorative satin stitches raised when sewing. We also have a rinse-away topper.
Proprietorial lightweight, high-quality, heat-soluble film.
- Place one piece of Embellish® Iron-Away Clear Topper on the surface of the hooped item, bumpy side touching the fabric, and secure the outer corners with RNK® Embroidery Perfection Tape or machine-baste to prevent movement.
Important – Do not use Embellish® Iron-Away Clear Topper underneath appliqué fabric.
- Embroider the design.
Remove as much of the topper as possible by tearing it away.
- To remove the Embellish® Iron-Away Clear Topper in tight spaces, use the Embellish® Vinyl Weeding Tool. This works great inside of small lettering, reducing hand fatigue.
- Use the tip of an iron set at a low temp (Silk Setting) to remove any remaining topper. The tip of the iron must come in direct contact with the topper to remove it.
Caution – Using a high setting on the iron will cause the topper to liquefy and melt into the design. Test on a scrap piece of fabric to find the ideal iron temperature.
Laundering and Care:
Launder and dry the item according to the fabric material fiber content.

The iron away topper is perfect for all those products that you don't want the topper completely wash away with multiple washings. It's easy to use and now that I know the secret to using a warm iron instead of a hot one.... I'll never screw up another design that way. Thanks Hope!
