Heirloom® Premium 80/20 Bleached Cotton Blend

Heirloom8020Bleached_151202_2681

Heirloom® Premium 80/20 Bleached Cotton Blend 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.

Bleached Cotton Blend is manufactured in the same manner as our Premium 80/20 in natural cotton. For this product the batting is made with 80% bleached cotton and 20% fine polyester. It is lightly needle punched and resin bonded to provide exceptional strength and durability.

Bleached 80/20 is wonderful to quilt by hand or machine. Close quilting yields a flat low loft appearance while more space between stitching lines yields a slightly higher loft. You may experience shrinkage of 3-5% and it may be quilted up to 4” apart.

We recommend that the quilt maker spend some time learning about this product before using it on a major project. Make samples using this batting to see how it launders and how it needles, both by hand and by machine, so that you can obtain the look you want in your final project.
