Scrim 100% Natural Cotton Batting:
Heirloom Premium 100% Natural Cotton with Scrim is designed for quilters seeking extra strength in cotton batting. Soft and gentle, Natural Cotton is perfect for quilts when low loft is desired. It becomes softer after each washing.
This easy to handle product is made with high grade natural cotton combined with a very thin scrim (stabilizer) needle punched into the batting fibers. This scrim provides superior strength over cotton alone, and prevents the it from stretching and distorting. The fiber used to create it is a very clean, unbleached long staple virgin cotton and proudly displays the Cotton Incorporated seal.
Natural with Scrim cotton should be used with medium or dark fabrics. If used with light colored fabrics, unbleached cotton can slightly darken white and pastel colors. You may experience shrinkage of 3-5% and it may be quilted up to 8” apart.
Monfil recommends 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.
