Which E-Zee Backing & Topping Should I Order?
E-Zee TEAR® is a non-woven* general use backing. You can tear it in any direction and won't need scissors. Use it on heavier, stable fabrics such as denim or twill. Pulling and tearing the backing will not distort the edge of your embroidery, as long as the fabric is sturdy. Once you tear away the backing, there will be no remnants of the backing left around your embroidery.
E-Zee Tear® is available in the following weights and colors in pre-cuts and rolls:

* What is a Non-Woven?
Most backings are Non-wovens. According to The Textile Institute, Non-wovens...are textile structures made directly from fiber rather than yarn. Non-woven fabrics are usually made from continous filaments or from fiber webs...strengthened by bonding using such techniques as: adhesive bonding, mechanical interlocking by needling or fluid jet entanglement, thermal bonding or stitching bonding.
E-Zee CUT AWAY® is a soft, stabilizing backing that is ideal for use on knits, sweaters, fleece and any fabric that stretches. It is especially good for use on fabrics that will be worn close to the skin. Cut the excess backing away from the garment as close to the edge of the embroidery as possible. The proper use of Cut Away will prevent your embroidery from pulling, sagging or puckering and will add stability to your garment.
