Hobbs Cotton Wadding – 45″ x 60″

Hobbs Cotton Wadding/Batting is designed for quilters that enjoy using natural cotton. This wadding/batting is needle punched through a scrim to give better stability.


Strong and soft is perfect for quilts where a low loft is desired.


This soft and pliable wadding/batting is made with very clean, high-grade, unbleached, long-staple, virgin cotton combined with a very thin, polyester scrim (stabilizer) which is needle-punched into the cotton fibers. This scrim provides superior strength to the cotton, also preventing the cotton batting from stretching and distorting as it’s manipulated.


Use Hobbs Heirloom Natural 100% Cotton with medium and dark fabrics. When paired with white or light-colored fabrics, natural (unbleached) cotton can slightly darken the fabrics.


Quilting/stitching may be up to 4″ apart with this wadding/batting, providing quilters with many more design options! And yes, it’s also machine washable – shrinkage of 3-5% is expected.
