Tyvek Hints

Tyvekfilm
is a magical fibrous film which has many exciting application ideas for textile and paper artists. You can paint it, stitch it, cut it, stamp on it and emboss it - whatever takes your fancy - but the excitement comes when you apply heat to it - either using an iron or a heat gun. I have been 'playing' with Tyvekfilm for over 10 years now and am for ever amazed at the different effects I get. I have used it for making garments, (yes, you can throw it in the washing machine) making beads (I once created 365 for a project and I can tell you that I was able to talk whilst doing this but not read), in textile jewellery (no selvages to worry about) and tiny pieces wherever I have needed them in my work.

Sample

Tyvek Beads Tyvekfilm comes in 3 different weights, light, medium and heavy. At The Thread Studio we sell it as an intro pack jam-packed full of great ideas for use and also in refill quantities.

Tyvektex
Is a more fabricky form of tyvek and likes the same treatment but I love it for garments and scrunchy beads - it is softer and very easy to stitch into.
At The Thread Studio we also sell this as an intro pack and by the metre.
