Hobbs Heirloom Organic Cotton Batting (image)

Hobbs Heirloom® Premium 100% Organic Cotton is officially USDA certified as “100% Organic.” This batting is made to the same specifications as Hobbs Heirloom® 100% Natural Cotton Batting only this is made with 100% organic cotton.

All-cotton Hobbs Heirloom® Premium 100% Organic Cotton Batting is made with the finest 100% organic cotton fibers available and offers a flat, ‘traditional’ look and feel and resists bunching or shifting. This soft cotton batting is perfect for quilts and it becomes softer after each washing.

Hobbs Heirloom Organic Cotton Batting should be paired with medium or dark fabrics – if paired with with white or light-colored fabrics, natural (unbleached) cotton can slightly darken the fabrics. We recommend quilters test this batting with their chosen fabric(s) to see if ‘darkening’ will be an issue – and if it will be, we recommend using Hobbs Heirloom® Premium Bleached 100% Cotton Batting as an alternative (note: this alternative batting is not certified organic).

This batting may be stitched up to 4″ apart, and it is machine washable (once inside a quilt), with shrinkage of 3-5% expected.

We recommend quilters spend time learning about Hobbs Heirloom Organic Cotton Batting before using it on a project – making samples using this batting to see how it needles, both by hand and by machine, and how it launders, provides an opportunity to see if this batting can deliver the desired results.

Pre-washing is not recommended for this or any of our other quality batting products.
