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