Gunold Ultra SOLVY Stable Water-Soluble Embroidery Film

Ultra SOLVY for Inexpensive, Fast Patch and Emblem Embroidery!

ULTRA SOLVY water soluble embroidery film is thick – 80 microns thick - and can be easily used in an embroidery hoop for direct embroidery without using fabric or any additional stabilizers. The result is an incredibly soft and flexible piece of embroidery. The finished embroidered design pattern is simply punched out of the film – no cutting is needed. Embroidered badges and embroidered emblems can be produced quickly and efficiently in this manner. Use Gunold's Heat and Seal, otherwise known as BSN, to permanently affix this resulting free-standing embroidery to any garment, hat, bag, or virtually any embroidery blank.

Main Embroidery Applications for Gunold Solvy Water Soluble

  • Topping: Use ULTRA SOLVY as a topping for soft pile fabrics, knitwear, terry cloth, or whenever highly-detailed embroideries would disappear in the material. ULTRA SOLVY residual simply tears away, and any remainder is removed by a spritz from a water bottle.
  • Backing: Use ULTRA SOLVY as a backing for embroidery blanks where both fabric sides are visible to the end user, and residual visual backing is undesirable. ULTRA SOLVY residual simply tears away, and any remainder is removed by a spritz from a water bottle.

Ultra Solvy for Embroidery Patches and Embroidery Emblems:

Firmly hoop ULTRA SOLVY FILM 80 without additional stabilizer. Embroider directly onto the film, and then punch out the finished embroidery from the embroidery foil or embroidery film. Now you have free-standing embroidery with neatly finished edges.

An EmbroideryTip:

When sewing completely filled-in patches, the embroidery design should be digitized so that all segments and threads are interlinked. If not, the design will fall apart when you remove the ULTRA SOLVY water soluble film.
