$8.25 ~ by Pellon; 96″wide (purchase by the yard = 96″x36″) – 100% natural cotton; 1/16″ loft
Pellon Nature’s Touch 100% Natural Cotton Batting allows stitched areas up to 4”. It has a low loft and is best used in machine work. Cotton is a natural and renewable, sustainable fiber that has been used in quilts for centuries. The cotton fiber is strong and yet soft and has proven itself to last. Quilts are not destined for a landfill, yet quilters are conscious of the environment and are making choices to ‘do no harm’ to the earth. The growth and processing of all natural cotton does not harm the environment. It is needle punched and there are no chemicals used. Our cottons are grown and manufactured in the USA.
Cotton does not beard [aka fiber migration to the surface]. ALL cottons can shrink up to 3-5%. Should you use hot temperatures while washing and/or drying a quilt or garment, the fabrics used could shrink 3% if they are not shrunk prior to use. When gentle cycles and cool temperatures are used in washing, a finished quilt or garment made with this 100% cotton batting will be surprisingly durable. Air dry or dry laying flat for best results.
