100% Bleached Cotton Batting:
Tuscany Bleached Cotton is designed to give a soft hand and an even appearance in light colored quilts. Exceptionally easy to quilt by hand or machine, it is the softest cotton batting available on the market today.
Tuscany Bleached is highly recommended for white or very light colored quilts. The bleached cotton fibers provide a lovely white batting that will not cause a shadow effect on the colors of a light quilt top.
This product is made with only the finest cotton fibers. The clean, bleached, and long staple virgin cotton batting proudly displays the Cotton Incorporated Seal. This 100% bleached cotton is punched to resist bunching and shifting. It is also contains no scrim or binders.
Prewashing is not recommended. Used straight from the package, the batt will shrink after quilting to create the desired look of antique puckering when washed. Cotton quilts can be washed many times and become softer and more beautiful with time. You may experience shrinkage of 3-5% and it may be quilted up to 4” apart.
It is important that the quilt maker spend some time learning about this product before using it on a major project. We recommend making samples using this cotton batting to see how it launders and how it needles, both by hand and by machine, so you can achieve the ideal look you want in your final project.
