Hobbs Heirloom® Premium Natural 100% Cotton Batting is designed for quilters who prefer using a natural cotton batting, and for those who want a traditional looking quilt with a fairly flat finish and exceptional softness (it gets softer with each washing!).
Hobbs Heirloom Cotton Batting should be paired with medium or dark fabrics – if paired with with white or light-colored fabrics, natural (unbleached) cotton can slightly darken the fabrics. We recommend quilters test this batting with their chosen fabric(s) to see if ‘darkening’ will be an issue – and if it will be, we recommend using Hobbs Heirloom® Premium Bleached 100% Cotton Batting as an alternative.
This batting may be stitched up to 4″ apart, and it is machine washable (once inside a quilt), with shrinkage of 3-5% expected.
Hobbs Heirloom® Premium Natural 100% Cotton Batting is a non-allergenic, natural cotton batting that’s made with the finest, clean, natural (unbleached), long-staple, virgin cotton available (and it proudly displays the Cotton Incorporated Seal).
