Fusible 80/20 wadding is made in the same way as Premium 80/20 except that it has a fusible resin in the spray bonding process. The resin eliminates the need for pins or tacking when layering up your quilt.
Fusible Wadding, Heirloom premium 80/20
Heirloom® Fusible, if prewashed, will be rendered non-fusible. When washed, the product becomes similar to Heirloom® Premium 80/20 Cotton batting.
If desired, the quilt top and back can be ironed on separately or at the same time. Simply press your quilt from the center to the outer edges. Move your iron lightly from place to place pressing approximately 3-4 seconds in each area. Once you have covered the entire surface area of your quilt, allow the quilt to cool. You may then begin quilting by hand or machine.
Fusible 80/20 wadding should be used with medium or dark fabrics. If used with light colored fabrics, unbleached cotton can slightly darken white and pastel colors. It is wonderful to quilt by hand or machine. Close quilting yields a flat low loft appearance while more space between stitching lines yields a slightly higher loft. You may experience shrinkage of 3-5% and it may be quilted up to 4” apart.
