Tuscany Silk batting is flexible, soft and drapes like no other batting on the market. The comfortable feel is ideal for both quilts and garments. Silk has the natural ability to breath, making it an excellent choice for airy, lightweight quilts and coverlets. The product provides excellent warmth with very little weight.
This Tuscany Silk Batting is a blend of 90% very fine imported silk filaments and 10% fine polyester. It is carded and resin bonded to help retard bearding and fiber migration. Unlike other battings, it need not be handled with gloves or encased in cheesecloth. It quilts brilliantly by hand or machine.
For optimal results, we suggest that you hand wash your quilts/garments in cool water and dry them flat. If you prefer to wash by machine, do so with caution. 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 silk 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.
