Heirloom® Premium 80/20 Cotton Blend

Heirloom® Premium Cotton Blend is made from 80% long staple cotton fibers and 20% fine polyester. This combination of fibers creates a strong, longwearing batt and is very easy to handle.

The batting is lightly needle punched and treated with a soft resin to provide stability to the fibers and prevent the polyester from bearding. This process makes Heirloom® Cotton Blend Batting uniquely easy to quilt by hand.

Heirloom® Premium 100% Cotton

Hobbs Heirloom®  Premium Cotton will give your projects the traditional flat look of antique quilts without the need for excessive quilting. Cotton is a breathable fiber that provides warmth and comfort. Heirloom® Premium Cotton is easy to quilt by hand or machine and drapes beautifully.

Heirloom®  Premium Cotton can be quilted as close as ¼” and as far apart as 4”. Close quilting will be very flat, while more space between the quilting lines will yield a slightly higher loft.

Heirloom® Premium Wool

Heirloom® Premium Wool batting provides superb insulation. The fiber breathes, allowing excess heat to disperse away from the body. One of the many benefits of wool is that it gives warmth without adding weight. Wool can absorb up to 30% of its own weight in moisture without feeling damp. The tiny fibers trap air which creates insulation in this lightweight batt. In addition, wool batts are naturally mildew resistant and resistant to moth damage when quilted with cotton fabrics.This batting can be quilted up to 4” apart and has excellent loft retention.

Hobbs Heirloom® Premium 80/20 Bleached Cotton Blend

Highly recommended for white or very light colored quilts. The bleached 100% cotton fibers, combined with the fine, white polyester fibers, provide a very white batting that will keep quilts made with white or light-colored fabrics nice and bright.

Whether you’re creating a utility quilt, a quilt to give as a gift, a household decor item, a wall-hanging or a show quilt, this batting should be considered for its strength, durability, color, loft and finish.

Tuscany Silk

 

Tuscany Silk breathes naturally, making it an excellent choice for airy, lightweight quilts and coverlets, and while it’s a ‘cool’ quilt, it can also provide excellent warmth.

Hobbs Tuscany Silk Batting is a blend of 90% very fine imported silk filaments and 10% fine polyester, ingredients which are carded and bonded to help retard bearding and fiber migration. And, unlike other silk battings, this batting doesn’t need to be handled with gloves or encased in cheesecloth.
