Notions: Lightweight, Lofty Batting

Threads magazine - 186 - Aug./Sept. 2016 Issue
Article Image

This was originally featured in the Notions department of Threads #186 (August/September 2016).

Created to resist shrinking, shifting, and escaping through a project’s outer fabric (a.k.a. “bearding”),
Select Soft Wool batting from Quilters Select by Floriani with Alex Anderson is also lightweight, breathable, and insulating. The wool batting’s lofty fibers contribute warmth and moisture-wicking properties to quilts and other projects so they remain cozy in cold conditions and breathe in warm conditions. Previously, Select Soft Wool batting came in a 96-inch width, but the manufacturer is phasing out this size in favor of a 120-inch width to align better with standard bed and quilt sizes.

Available from for $28.99 per yard.
