If you already know the quilt batting product you like just click on that company's tab at the top of this page. We offer all of these fine companies product lines. Quilt batting comes mostly in three different materials. The most popular are polyester, cotton, and wool, Bamboo is starting to a showing. Polyester quilt batting is the least expensive. Cotton usually cost about twice as much. Then, the wool which is about twice as expensive as cotton. Most quilt batting companies offer the fibers in a blended form, a mixture of say cotton and polyester. Each type of quilt batting has its positive points.
Quilt batting is usually put together using two different methods. First needled or needledpunched. This method uses the technique of sending thousands of barbed needles back and forth through the fibers. This process ties the fibers together into a fairly tight-woven product, almost like felt. Then, there is the bonded quilt batting which is normally thicker--having a "loft." bonded batting is made in two different methods. Either resin bonded (glue) or thermal bonded (heat) until they stick together. The company starts out by building up the polyester fibers until the desired weight or ounces of fibers per linear yard is reached. It usually comes in 48" and 96" wide. Usually the more ounces of fiber the higher the loft or the thickness. The thinnest is usually about .25" loft and has about 3 oz of fiber per linier yard. The thickest loft is anywhere from 1.00" to as much as 1.50", and has about 10 ounces of fibers per linear yard on the 48" wide and 20 oz on the 96" wide. We do not give any type guarantee on the loft of any bonded quilt batting we do stand behind the oz weight of the product. The loft on these polyester batting products can very between different factories. It can very even with the same factory from time to time. Each company that makes batting even though they use the same polyester fibers get a different look and feel to the batting. Most polyester fiber quilt batting is pure white and it is used, many times in displays and on stages and home decor to look like snow. Cotton quilt batting comes in its natural color, being a light tan, and bleached white. You have a choice of natural or bleached. Cotton batting is almost always needled. Quilters Dream Batting makes a black polyester needled quilt batting for use with dark colored fabric where the white might bleed through.

Shipping companies charge by weight and by size of the item. They charge oversize rates on most of the items offered on this website. This is because of the size of the products. Large boxes are necessary due to the nature of these products. So although an item may only weight 15 lbs. It's shipping weight may be 80 lbs due to the size of the shipping container. So a lot of the times, when you see a weight listed it is the shipping weight not the weight of the product.

When choosing a batting...
What sort of quilt is it for - wall hanging, bed or lap quilt, children's quilt..?
How puffy do you want the finished quilt?
Do you want an antique puckering look?
Do you intend to hand or machine quilt it?
How thick do you want it - is it intended for use somewhere very cold where warmth is the main priority?
Washing the finished quilt - will it be a child´┐Żs quilt that may need fairly frequent and easy washing, or is ease of washing not a priority? This should be a consideration when purchasing your batting.
A little information about what you may need in batting products.
Quilters have a large selection of quilt batting from which to choose. There is low loft, medium loft, high loft, extra high loft, and super loft. Choose from cotton, polyester, wool or various blends. Some quilt batting is meant for hand quilting and others for machine quilting. While some batting is suitable for either hand or machine quilting. Others batts are meant to be tied, comforter-style. The thinner batting can be used in clothing or wall hangings. Thicker batting is ideal for mattress covers and acoustical aids for home theaters. A needled or needledpunched polyester batting with heavy weights (poly-pellets)makes great incontinence pads as well as for weighted blankets. The weighted blankets are often used for children with autism. The blanket should be the equivalent to approximately 10% of the child's body weight.
Some quilt batting can also come with a scrim. The scrim makes the batting more stable but it is harder for hand sewing. Needlepunched batting is easier to hand quilt. For hand quilters, ease of needling is an important consideration and hand quilters prefer polyester as it is easier to work with. Cotton or cotton/polyester blends are preferred for machine quilting as they cling to the fabric and there is less shifting, thus alleviating puckers on the bottom lining.
Batting is the part of the quilt that does not show but it determines the look of the finished product. If it is for a bed, it should provide warmth. If it is for a wall hanging, it should be low loft and hang fairly flat. Also note that cotton batts take longer to dry while polyester ones dry fairly quickly.
Polyester batts can lose their loft, whereas cotton ones become softer and more supple with use and repeated washing. Cotton batts and wool batts, being of natural fiber, tend to "breathe". Polyester batts can trap in air and do not 'breathe', thus making you 'sweat'. Cotton batts are heavier than polyester. Children's quilts tend to lean toward polyester because they are lighter and they are easier to wash and maintain. Keep in mind that polyester batting will cause a quilt to melt when exposed high heat or fire. Polyester batts can beard, i.e. the batting may creep to the top of the quilt.
Cotton batts may or may not be bleached. Look for the words white (bleached) or natural (a light tan). You can purchase black batts for dark pieced tops. If a quilt top is predominantly white, bleached cotton should be used or your batting color may show through the top. Hobbs' Bleached Organic Heirloom Cotton and Fairfield Bleached Cotton are some examples. Most 100% cotton batts need to be quilted 2" apart between quilting lines. Read the instructions on your batting package as some cotton batts can now be quilted farther apart.
The scrim found in cotton batts adds stability to the batting. The scrim is synthetic. Some batts are needle punched, meaning puncture marks are added to the batting for ease of hand quilting. Cotton has a tendency to shrink an average of about 5%.
Cotton or cotton/polyester blends are preferred for machine quilting as it clings to the fabric and helps prevent shifting, thus alleviating puckers on the bottom lining.
Some batts are blended such as 80% cotton and 20% polyester. The polyester content means that you can quilt farther apart than if it was all cotton. It generally does not have to be pre-washed but the instructions say that you have to quilt 3 1/2" apart. For use with either hand or machine quilting.
Some are predominantly polyester with 20% cotton. It looks and feels like cotton and is readily available. It should be prewashed as it may contain plant seeds.
Natural cotton quilt batting can give your washed quilt an antique look. This would be true also with organic cotton quilt batting.
Wool Batting may be treated with lanolin or other resins. It can be machine-washed. The cost is slightly higher than cotton but it hand quilts as easily as polyester. There is no pull on the needle and it is easier to hand-quilt than cotton. Wool tends to beard.
Polyester batting allows for quilting to be farther apart.
At all times follow the instructions provided on the bags regarding how closely you can quilt, whether to pre-wash or not and if it is for hand or machine quilting.
Quilt batting Care
Polyester quilt batting should be air dried if possible. If you use a dryer use your lowest heat setting.
