Hobbs Tuscany Collection The Ultimate Quilt Batting
Cotton/Wool Blend Size: Throw (60in x 60in)
This blend is a wonderful combination of 80% Fine Cotton and 20% Superwashed Wool. It is designed for hand quilting, as well as machine and long-arm projects, and will resist bunching and fiber migration. The addition of the wool adds loft giving greater detail to the stitching pattern. It also lends a nice drape providing softness without compromising the stability of the batting. Tuscany Cotton Wool Batting is specifically designed to be used with medium or dark-colored fabrics. If used with white or very light fabrics, unbleached cotton can slightly darken the light colors.
Soft, fluffy, bonded, breathes naturally, and washable! This is perfect for wall-hangings, bed/sofa throws, or even as a second layer of batting.
Pre-washing is not recommended for this product. Gentle machine washing and flat drying suggested. Quilts with this blend of fibers can be washed many times and will get softer over time. You may experience shrinkage of 3-5% and quilting/stitching may be up to 4” apart.
We recommend that the quilt maker spend some time learning about this product before using it on a major project. Make samples using this batting to see how it launders and how it needles, both by hand and by machine, so that you can obtain the look you want in your final project.
