Below are 5 reasons why UltraWeed should be your go-to HTV material.

  1. Cuts & weeds like butter

  2. Low-temp application

  3. Trendy matte finish

  4. Super soft and thin - perfect for layering

  5. Made in the USA by Stahls' - the HTV Pros

1. Cuts & Weeds like butter

UltraWeed can be cut on any cutter including all Cricut and Silhouette models.  The material has a clear, tacky carrier that allows you to cut fine detailed designs and weed away unwanted pieces with ease.

2. Low-temp application

UltraWeed can be applied as low as 260℉-280℉ degrees for polyester fabrics. Decorate heat-sensitive items like faux leather, leggings, polyester tees, or tri-blends without melting the fabric and leaving behind that awful heat press box. 

  • Decorated Item: Makeup bag made of PU (polyurethane) leather.
  • Application: Heat press - 260 degrees,12 seconds, peel hot.

For garments with 50% or higher Cotton, we recommend applying at 300℉ degrees. 

UltraWeed can be applied with a heat press, home iron or Cricut EasyPress.

3. Trendy matte finish

Get bright and vibrant decorations that have a trendy matte finish! The true matte finish of UltraWeed gives off a softer look when applied unlike other HTV materials with a semi-matte finish that sometimes end up looking crunchy/sticker-like.

4. Super soft and thin. Perfect for layering

UltraWeed is one of the thinnest materials on the market. With it’s matte finish, it feels buttery soft when applied. Using the 2-second tack method, UltraWeed is perfect for layering and doesn’t leave you with a heavy or bulky-feeling design.
