100% cotton wadding or batting is a natural and popular option for quilting and other textile projects. It is made exclusively from the fibres of the cotton plant and is a pure, natural, and sustainable material.
100% cotton waddings are traditional quilt waddings in their purest sense. They are selected for their warmth, soft touch and inherent breathability.
While most people pre-wash a pure cotton option to remove shrinkage, many quilters also choose to include the wadding in the finished piece and then wash. This adds some natural, traditional/authentic, texture to the quilt as the wadding shrinks slightly during the first couple of washes and carries the quilt top with it.
Perfect for machine quilting, cotton waddings remain one of the most popular options available.
