Heirloom® Premium 80/20 Cotton Blend

HeirloomPremium_151202_2688

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

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.

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.

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.
