Hobbs Poly-Down Polyester Batting is made with very fine, white, denier polyester which enables this wadding to provide a soft feel and lovely drape. Exceptional for hand quilting, it is also prized by machine quilters for its wonderful loft which accentuates quilting details.
Hobbs Poly-Down Polyester wadding is bonded to provide added durability and resist bearding and migration, and it’s machine-washable, non-allergenic and maintains its loft.
Items made with Hobbs Poly-Down Polyester wadding may be machine washed – we recommend all quilts be washed using a delicate cycle and cool water, with no heavy agitation or spinning. Please be especially cautious with front-loading washers as the intense spin cycle on these machines can be very hard on quilts. Items made with Hobbs Poly-Down Polyester wadding may also be machine dried (again, we recommend a low-heat setting). For more detailed washing information, please see the care instructions on the product packaging.
Hobbs Poly-Down Polyester wadding should be paired with light- to medium-coloured fabrics – if being paired with darker fabrics, we recommend quilters test this wadding with their chosen fabric(s) to see if there will be an issue. It’s always best to test first!
This wadding may be stitched up to 4″ apart and no shrinkage is expected when the finished project is washed according to the care instructions (above).
Pre-washing is not recommended for this product.
