Product Details

Twill USA invented HTV Flock in 1983, and we hold the U.S. patent for the methods and materials used to make it. Originally, it was used a die-stamp material — either rotary cut in rolls or sheeted and cut with steel dies. The first decorative Flock that did not curl, the lay-flat nature of the invention allowed it to be laid easily onto a garment and heat-pressed. As the plotter cutting machinery advanced, we added a clear Mylar carrier so that it could be cut and weeded in a pre-spaced manner. Perfect for T-shirts and other delicate garments because of its soft, luscious appearance.

Our HTV Sports Flock is made with rayon filament yarn that is cut into 30-Mil long fibers. An electrostatic charge then imbeds them onto a liquid layer of thermosetting adhesive, which is on top of a thermoplastic layer of polyester adhesive. The Flock fibers stand straight up (in the liquid) due to the electric charge. It is then sent into a festoon oven for a long period of time to cure. Any excess fibers are vacuumed off and recycled. The finished product is today’s HTV Flock, ready to be cut and heat-applied.

HTV Sports Flock can be layered, but we do not recommended it as the bottom layer (background). Easy to cut. Easy to weed. Easy to apply. Repositionable. Available in sixteen (16) colors: White, Gray, Black, Navy, Royal, Columbia, French Blue, Bright Green, Emerald, Red, Cardinal Red, Magenta, Pink, Gold, Maize Yellow and Purple. It can be used with plotter cutters, desktop (craft) cutters, or on laser cutters. Our HTV Sports Flock competes against Stahls’ CAD-CUT Flock and Siser’s StripFlock® in the marketplace. Sold in 1 yard increments in 18″ widths and backed with our 3-Mil Polyback Hot-Melt Adhesive.

Why buy from JOANN, Hobby Lobby, Michaels® or other middlemen online when you can purchase direct from the manufacturer?

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What Is HTV Flock?

A: Reflective Heat Transfer Vinyl uses prism technology to achieve retro-reflectivity. Prisms are more efficient than glass beads, so the reflected light is brighter. This material is somewhat thinner and more flexible than fabric. NOTE: Reflective HTV Vinyl should be heat-pressed, not sewn onto garments.

Q: Can Sports Flock Be Layered?

A: Yes. HTV Sports Flock can be layered (but not overlapped) with other fabrics (e.g. Flock on Felt). It may be layered on top of Sports Twill or Sports Felt — but not Metallic Twill — or used with any other fabric as the foreground only.

Q: Is HTV Sports Flock Stretchable?

A: No. Flock is among the most durable products offered by Twill USA. It is soft and pliable, but not stretchable.

Q: How Durable Is The Sports Flock?

A: Our heat-applied Sports Flock is extremely durable. The material has been tested to withstand 50 wash and dry cycles without peeling or fading.

Q: To Which Materials Does It Adhere To?

A: Our HTV Flock adheres to Acrylics, 100% Cotton, Polyester Knits, Polyester Mesh, 100% Polyester, Poly-Cotton Blends, Poly Form and Cotton Caps.

Q: Can Sports Flock Be Ironed Onto Garments?

A: Our Sports Flock features a 3-Mil Polyback Hot-Melt Adhesive backing that can be ironed onto garments directly. When your iron is at temperature, place a TeflonTM sheet over the transfer, then use light-to-medium pressure for about 15 seconds. Let cool before peeling warm. If any part of the design has difficulty adhering to garments, simply iron the transfer for an additional 5-10 seconds.

Q: What Are The Care Instructions For This Product?

A: For best results, we recommend that you wait 24 hours before washing for the first time. Turn the garment(s) inside out and use cold temperature with a mild detergent only. Do not use bleach.

Q: Do I Have To Use A Cover Sheet When Heat Pressing Flock?

A: HTV Sports Flock is designed to work with any laser cutter, plotter or desktop (craft) cutter — including Cricut and Silhouette Cameo. You must mirror the design before cutting. Load the material into your cutting machine with the shiny-side facedown. We recommend that you make a ‘test cut’ prior to using HTV Flock for the first time to ensure that your cut settings are correct.

Q: Do I Cut This Material Shiny-side Up or Shiny-side Down?

A: HTV Flock designs should be mirrored (reverse-cut). You should always cover your transfers with a brown kraft sheet, parchment paper or TeflonTM sheet to protect the material, then heat press and your garments.
