100% Cotton Batting
Thank you for all your support while we work through these uncertain times.
As a result of the Covid-19 restristions we unfortunately have to close from 5pm Tuesday 24 March 2020.
This includes all online sales as the couriers will no longer be serving our business since we are not classed as an essential service.
This means any orders placed over the next 4 weeks will be shipped once the lockdown is over.
We are terribly sorry for any inconvenience caused. We are doing everything we can to get back in store sending orders but the health and safety of our staff and customers is our top priority. We will keep you updated.
Stay safe and happy sewing!

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.
