100% Cotton Batting
COTTON FIBRE BATTING
Weight: Light (Approx 100-110gsm)
Composition: 100% Cotton with Scrim*
Cosy cottong batting is lovely and soft, very light weight. Machine or hand quilt up to 10” apart
- Machine wash quilts with a mild detergent or speciality quilt wash on a gentle cycle.
- Machine spin on a medium to fast cycle to remove excess water
- Allow to dry flat in the shade
- For an antique look to your quilt, tumble dry on a warm cycle to cause batting to shrink
PRE WASHING AND SHRINKAGE:
Pre wash wadding by hand only. Use cool water and mild detergent, soak for 15 minutes, squeeze out excess moisture by rolling in a dry towel. Dry naturally by lying flat. A shrinkage of 4% to 8% can be expected.
Pre-washing is advisable for a flat smooth finish to the quilt. If not pre-washed and pre-shrunk, a pretty antique/ruffled finish to the quilt will result
*Scrim: A light layer or grid of woven fibres added to some cotton battings. It acts as a stabilizer and helps to hold them together while quilting.
