I removed wrinkles from spinaker material with a cool iron.

Practice on some scraps first. Be careful.... Maybe put a cloth over the top (tea towel or something) and iron through that ?

I am not sure exactly what Icarex is - if it is like mylar (rattly etc) this may not work and could be disastrous. If it is more like material (ripstop etc) then the cool iron should be ok.

Before you make more sails, iron the material first then make the sails....
