Tuscany Wool wadding is made with the very best super wash wool, which eliminates most or all of the shrinkage. It is then carded and resin bonded to help retard bearding. Tuscany wool batting provides superb insulation and the fiber breathes, allowing excess heat to dispense away from the body. It can be quilted up to 4″ apart and is washable. We recommend washing in tepid water by hand and laying out flat to dry. It hand quilts like a dream, and is wonderful for machine quilters as well.
Tuscany wool is made so that it will have very minimal shrinkage, so there is no need to pre-wash it prior to quilting.
Once quilted, it can be washed by hand, or by using a gentle cycle in the washing machine. Agitate as little as possible though, when wet, as machine agitation can cause felting in wool.
Use cool water for washing and rinsing…Hobbs suggest 30C degrees…
Use only a very gentle detergent.
Wash as you would wash a cashmere jumper.
Do not tumble dry, until “mostly” dry, then dry on “air” cycle only.
