Hobbs Tuscany Unbleached 100% Cotton Batting is especially designed to give a soft hand and an even appearance. Exceptionally easy to quilt by hand or machine, it is one of the softest cotton battings on the market today.

Made with only the finest cotton fibers, this clean, unbleached, long-staple, virgin cotton batting proudly displays the Cotton Incorporated Seal. Containing no scrim or binders, this 100% cotton product is needle-punched to resist bunching and shifting.

Hobbs Tuscany Unbleached 100% 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 Tuscany Bleached 100% Cotton Batting as an alternative.

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 Tuscany Unbleached 100% 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.
