    Can you use Pellon cotton batting with the scrim on the back in children’s quilts? Is the scrim flammable?

      Hi Judy,

      Thanks so much for checking in with us! If you are referring to a small piece of the carrier paper from the Wonder-Under® it should not pose a problem other than you may get a crinkling sound. As it has a silicone coating on it, it will not dissolve quickly like plain paper. Over time, however, and repeated washings it should begin to break down.

      I hope that this helps! Best of luck with your project!

    I am working on a project that asks for pre-washing my pellon. Any special instructions? Can I dry it or need to let it dripdry?

      Hi Molly,

      Can you tell us which product your project calls for? That information will dictate our answer:). You can also write to us at if that’s easier!

      Thank you so much!

        Hi Molly —

        Thanks so much for clarifying! As our SF101 Shape-Flex is 100% Cotton, it is the one product that we would recommend pre-washing if you also plan to pre-wash your fabrics. To do this, fill a basin with warm water and put the SF101 in for about five minutes. Gently squeeze out the excess water being careful not to dis-lodge the fusible (a good idea is to gently roll it in a waiting towel) and line dry it. You should NOT put this in a machine washer or dryer by itself. As the Thermolam is 100% Polyester, you do not need to pre-wash as no shrinkage should be expected.

        I hope that this helps! Should you need any further assistance, please don’t hesitate to be in touch. Good luck with your project and happy sewing! — Erin at Pellon

    I have always used Pellon 40wt stabilizer for the backing of my machine embroidery designs. Recently I had to purchase more Pellon 40wt and to my suprise the cost had increased and the quality of the new 40wt was not the same. I don’t mind paying the $2.29 a yard for the stabilizer but I do object to the quality. Maybe Pellon thought no one would notice! Pellon: SHAME ON YOU!

        Thank you Michelle, Erin and Charles for your help solving this problem. Pellon seems like it really cares about the consumer. I look forward to purchasing more Pellon products.

      Hi Jayne,

      I’m so sorry that you didn’t receive instructions with your purchase! The P44F is a product that is currently sold exclusively at Joann Stores as a promotional item. This low cost item is made to their specifications. It is not sold in our regular Pellon® line. The closest item to this is our 906F Pellon® Fusible for Sheer to Lightweight Fabrics. You can grab a copy of the instructions for our 906F right here: I hope that this helps! Please don’t hesitate to reach out with any further questions.

      Our very best wishes,
      Erin @ Pellon

      Hi Doni –

      For a T-shirt quilt, our interfacing expert recommends using the 906F Fusible Sheerweight or the 911F Fusible Featherweight for a lighter finished product. Both are non woven fusibles which do have some give in one or more directions. For a more stable finished product, she recommends the 950F Shir-Tailor®. It is stable in all directions and a little bit heavier. We have an excellent tutorial on our website that also recommends this product (grab it here: What is really comes down to is personal choice.

      I hope that this helps! Best of luck and we’d love to see the finished product once it’s complete:)
      Have a lovely weekend –
      Erin @ Pellon
