Which Vilene Flexi-Firm product is right for me?
We sell 2 types of flexi-firm, S520 is the heavier/thicker version, equivalent to Pellon 71F, it is thicker and more rigid that S320 and is perfect for bags and boxes where you want a really firm/crisp finish. S320 is a thinner version, adding less bulk and easier to manipulate, but not as stiff.
How to Use:
First iron the fabrics at length with steam to avoid any shrinkage later. Allow the fabrics to dry completely. Place the interfacing with the coated side on the wrong side of the fabric. Then cover with a damp cloth and glide the iron over each area and press for about 15 seconds, without letting the iron move (iron setting: wool/cotton). Allow the pieces to cool flat for about 30 minutes, so that the adhesive can set properly.
We strongly recommend that you attach a small piece of interfacing to a fabric remnant with your iron first to make sure that the hold and the adhesion meet your expectations.
Once your project is complete, you can wash in temperatures up to 40 °C in the gentle cycle or dry clean (providing the fabric attached can also be washed at that temperature/be dry cleaned).
