Hobbs Heirloom® Premium 100% Bleached with Scrim is designed for quilters seeking extra strength in cotton batting for white or light colored quilts. Soft and gentle, this batting is perfect for quilts when low loft is desired. It becomes softer after each washing.
This easy to handle batting is made with high grade bleached cotton combined with a very thin scrim (stabilizer) needle punched into the batting fibers. This scrim provides superior strength over cotton alone, and prevents the batting from stretching and distorting. The fiber used to create this batting is a very clean, bleached long staple virgin cotton and proudly displays the Cotton Incorporated seal.
Hobbs Bleached with Scrim is highly recommended for white or very light colored quilts. The bleached cotton fibers provide a very white batting that will not cause a shadow effect on the colors of a light quilt top. You may experience shrinkage of 3-5% and it may be quilted up to 8” apart.
