Batting - Hobbs Tuscany Cotton/Wool 80/20 - 96"
Hobbs Tuscany Cotton Wool Batting is a wonderful blend of 80% fine cotton and 20% superwashed wool. It is designed for hand quilting, as well as for machine and long-arm projects, and resists bunching and fiber migration.
The addition of the wool adds a wonderful loft, which gives greater detail to the stitching pattern, and the wool also lends a nice drape and softness without the stability of the batting being compromised. Hobbs Tuscany Cotton Wool Batting is perfect for bed quilts and as a second layer of batting (behind Hobbs’ Tuscany 100% Wool Batting).
Quilting/stitching should be every 4″ inches, or closer, and quilters may experience shrinkage of 3-5%. Quilts with this blend of fibers can be washed many times and will get softer over time. Gentle machine washing (in cool water and on a delicate cycle, with no heavy agitation or spinning) and air drying are suggested.
