Warm & Natural Batting

From the Warm Company website -

Warm & Natural is the finest needle-punched cotton batting! Only 15% of all cotton grown in the USA is the proper length, thickness and color. Out of this 15%, only 5% is clean enough for Warm & Natural! This soft, natural cotton has never been washed or bleached with harsh chemicals. It's kinder to the environment and kinder to your batting. The cotton undergoes a mechanical cleaning process removing all of the seeds, seed coats, along with the majority of leaf and stem remnants. The remaining tiny plant particles lend a special look to crafts like no other and won't harm your quilt.

Quilt or tie up to 10" apart! Quilt Warm & Natural right out of the package, as pre-washing is not necessary. Once quilted, machine wash and dry your finished quilt in cold water. 3% shrinkage can be expected in the first wash with cold water. To achieve an antique puckered look use warm water for 5% shrinkage. Warm & Natural won't distort when hanging, hooping or when used in quilt frames. It can be used for both batting and as an exterior craft fabric to create stuffed snowmen and rabbits.

The Warm Company is proud to purchase over 4 million pounds of American cotton annually for processing in our American manufacturing facilities by American workers for the American tradition of quilting shared around the world!

Warm & White Batting

From the Warm Company website -

Warm & White is The Warm Company's second highest selling quilt batting enjoying world-wide success for 20 years. Warm & White is everything you love about Warm & Natural with beautiful white cotton fibers! It is made in the same state of the art needle-punched tradition that made Warm & Natural the most highly regarded quilt batting in the world. Warm & White is the ideal batting for use with bright whites, pastels, and tone-on-tone fabrics because Warm & White won't peek through!

Both Warm & Natural and Warm & White are 4 oz. per square yard, but Warm & White feels a little less lofty due to the bleaching process which strips the fibers of their natural oils, while at the same time reducing shrinkage. There is little to no measureable shrinkage in a cold or warm water wash after quilting. When looking for a finished quilt that will remain pristine without puckering around your quilted lines, Warm & White is the perfect choice!

Soft & Bright

From the Warm Company website -

 Soft & Bright undergoes the same manufacturing process that has made Warm & Natural, the world's leading batting. Soft & Bright consists of premium grade polyester fibers, needle-punched into a strong paper thin base material that holds the fibers in place, keeping the batting even and consistent. The high quality polyester fiber is soft and fluffy to the touch. The evenly layered fibers of Soft & Bright will stay in place inside your quilt and Soft & Bright will keep its shape even after a lifetime of gentle washings. The thin base material holds the fiber in place preventing slipping making free motion quilting a breeze! Top and backing fabric will cling to Soft & Bright as it is fed through your machine, making basting spray a thing of the past. Soft & Bright can be quilted or tied up to 10" apart so you can finish quilts even faster! Confidently use Soft & Bright in a hoop for embroidery and hand quilting without worry of distorting. Machine wash and dry finished quilts without any shrinkage. Soft & Bright is preferred for use in children's quilts as they require more frequent washing and Soft & Bright quilts dry so quickly.

Hobbs Heirloom 80/20

From the Hobbs website -

Heirloom® Premium 80/20 Cotton Blend is one of our most popular battings. It offers more loft and less weight than traditional cotton batting.

Heirloom® Premium is wonderful to quilt by hand or machine. This blend is made with 80% natural cotton and 20% fine polyester. It is needle punched and has a light resin bonding to provide exceptional strength and durability. Close quilting yields a flat low loft appearance while more space between stitching lines yields a slightly higher loft.

Heirloom® Premium 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 4” apart.

We recommend 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.

Hobbs 80/20 Black

Heirloom® Premium 80/20 Black Cotton Blend is highly recommended for quilt tops created in black, navy or other dark colors. It is made using dyed cotton fibers to provide quilters with a batting that will not create light fiber lint on the quilt top during the quilting process.

This product is manufactured in the same manner as our Premium 80/20 in the natural cotton. This batting is made with 80% dyed cotton and 20% polyester. It is lightly needle punched and resin bonded to provide exceptional strength and durability.

Black Cotton Blend is wonderful to quilt by hand or machine. Close quilting yields a flat low loft appearance while more space between stitching lines yields a slightly higher loft. You may experience shrinkage of 3-5% and it may be quilted up to 4” apart.
