Mermaid Scale for Sewing and Embroidery
Mermaid Scale vinyl has a brushed cotton backing. It can look lighter or darker depending on the angle. This comes in 2 colors only at this time, which are rainbow and silver.
It can be washed in cold water on gentle or hand washed and dried via air dry, cool dry or hang to dry. Our recommendation is to HAND WASH. This is a vinyl product and heat settings are NOT recommended. DO NOT use chemicals such as Oxy Clean, Shout etc. with this vinyl as they can cause a break down of the vinyl.
This has been washed and dried using the "regular" settings on their washer and dryer and there has not been a single issue in doing so, but this is not our recommendation.
If using this vinyl on items that are not preshrunk, please not that the vinyl will not shrink with the material. This can cause the vinyl to bunch up and even pull away.
Needle use for this really does depend on what you are making with it. If you are doing an applique on a knit fabric you will get the best results using a ballpoint needle.
Sheets are 9 x 12 Inches, Rolls are 12 x 54 Inches. Our vinyl is hand cut. We try to be true to size, but it could be off just a tad. Please note that if ordering multiple rolls they will NOT be a continuous cut. If you want a continuous cut you MUST specify it in the notes and we will try to accommodate your request. Sometimes the vinyl has already been cut down into the sizes listed above.
Note colors may differ due to computer monitor settings and dye lot changes.
All vinyl is cut by hand. We try to be true to size, but a sheet could be off just a tad.
