Quilters Dream Cotton starts with the finest cotton available and is carded, crosslapped and specially needle punched. It does not contain polyester, scrim, glue or binders that create resistance to your needle. 100% natural and environmentally friendly, this batting proudly bears Cotton Incorporated's Seals. It has a very high thermal value (R=3.8) and is warm yet light.
The needle punch process prevents shifting and lumping. Stitching up to 8" apart allow quilters wonderful freedom of design. Needles (by machine and hand) glide smoothly thru the fine, consistent, even webbing. The finished quilt may be machine washed and dried - shrinkage is minimal (about 1%). Drapes beautifully giving a traditional look and feel to your quilts.
The request weight is a very thin batting for very tiny stitches. About 1/16th of an inch thick; 3oz wt per sq yard. Good for replicating 19th century quilts, making summer quilts and wearables.
