Hobbs’ Polyester Battings

Hobbs Poly-Down Batting is made with very fine, white, denier polyester which enables this batting to provide a soft feel and lovely drape. Exceptional for hand quilting, it is also prized by machine quilters for its wonderful loft which accentuates quilting details.

Hobbs Poly-Down Batting is bonded to provide added durability and resist bearding and migration, and it’s machine-washable, non-allergenic and maintains its loft.

Items made with Hobbs Poly-Down Batting may be machine washed – we recommend all quilts be washed using a delicate cycle and cool water, with no heavy agitation or spinning. Please be especially cautious with front loading washers as the intense spin cycle on these machines can be very hard on quilts.

Items made with Hobbs Poly-Down Batting may also be machine dried (again, we recommend a low-heat setting). For more detailed washing information, please see the care instructions on the product packaging. 

Hobbs Poly-Down Batting should be paired with light- to medium-colored fabrics – if being paired with darker fabrics, we recommend quilters test this batting with their chosen fabric(s) to see if there will be an issue. It’s always best to test first!

This batting may be stitched up to 4″ apart and no shrinkage is expected when the finished project is washed according to our care instructions (above).

We recommend quilters spend time learning about Hobbs Poly-Down Polyester 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.

How Is Hobbs Batting Helping You?

Hobbs is "the best batting and a wonderful company! You may quote me all you want, I tell everyone about Hobbs..."My sister quilts like it is a job, (in) my life it's a hobby. We both do large and small quilts. She does a lot of service projects. We both do our own quilting...Thank you again for making a wonderful product! Oh yeah, we love all of them!"
