Cotton Wool Blend Batting:
Tuscany Cotton Wool Blend is a perfect combination of 80% fine cotton and 20% superwashed wool. The product is designed for hand quilting, as well as machine and long-arm projects.
This cotton wool blend batting will resist bunching and fiber migration. The combination of fine cotton and wool adds loft, which gives greater detail to the stitching pattern. Wool also lends a nice drape by providing softness without compromising the stability of the batting. It is the ideal product for wall-hangings or bed quilts.
Tuscany Cotton Wool blend 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. Quilts with this blend of fibers can be washed many times and will get softer over time. We suggest gentle machine washing and flat drying. 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 cotton wool blend batting before using it on a major project. We recommend making samples using this 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.
