Tuscany Collection

The Ultimate Quilt Batting

Whether you are a quilter or a shop owner, you should be interested in the new Tuscany Collection of premium battings made especially for shops and their discriminating clientele.

Tuscany Silk
Tuscany Silk bonded batting is made from imported silk filaments with the addition of 10% polyester. It is then carded and resin bonded to help retard bearding (fiber migration) and allowing the batting to be handled like a blanket. It can be quilted up to 4″ apart and hand washed in tepid water and then laid out to dry flat. It will likely shrink approximately 5%. Because of silk’s natural ability to breath, it is an excellent choice for airy, lightweight quilts and coverlets. The Tuscany Silk batting quilts magnificently by hand or machine and is a superb filling material for embroidery.
Tuscany Wool
Tuscany Wool batting is made with the very best super wash wool, which eliminates most or all of the shrinkage. It is then carded and resin bonded to help retard bearding. Tuscany wool batting provides superb insulation and the fiber breathes, allowing excess heat to dispense away from the body. It can be quilted up to 4″ apart and is washable. We recommend washing in tepid water by hand and laying out flat to dry. It hand quilts like a dream, and is wonderful for machine quilters as well.
Tuscany Polyester
Tuscany Polyester made with the finest siliconized, very small denier polyester, and then resin bonded to resist bearding. We then use a unique technique that helps seal the outside and further prevent bearding. It is completely washable and may be quilted up to 4″ apart. It will not shrink.
Tuscany Bleached Cotton
Tuscany Bleached Cotton is made with fine 100% USA cotton. It’s carded, and specially needle punched to prevent bunching/shifting and is completely washable. It will shrink 3-5% like all needle punched 100% cotton batting. It can be quilted up to 4″ apart. Bleached cotton should be used with light or white fabrics to eliminate the shading of darker battings.
Tuscany Unbleached Cotton
Tuscany Unbleached Cotton starts with fine 100% USA cotton that is carded and specially needle punched to prevent bunching and shifting. It is completely washable and will shrink 3-5% like all cotton batting. It can be quilted up to 4″ apart and should be used primarily with medium or dark colored fabrics.
