Batting

Batting    

ABOUT

Batting, also known as wadding, is usually used in quilting as an insulation layer between fabrics. Often made from cotton, polyester, blends, or wool, this makes quilts warm and thickness. Batting is often manufactured with different types of fibers held together using different types of methods such as bonded, needle-punched, and scrim.

 

BATTING TERMS

  • Bearding are when fibers seperate and form fuzz on the quilt surface.
  • Drape is the feel of the quilt and how it hangs.
  • Loft is the thickness and puffiness of the batting. Low-loft is easier to handle and stitch on that is soft and drapes well, whereas high-loft is great in emphasizing quilting details, oftenly used in tied quilts.
  • Bonded are when fibers are bonded together by thermal or resin processes.
  • Needle-punched the batting is mechanically felted together by thousands of tiny needles. Even at a low-loft, the batting is strong and dense.
  • Scrim has added strength, loft, and prevents stretching through a thin stablizer needle-punched into the batting.

 

TYPES OF BATTING

  • Cotton has a soft texture made from natural fibers that also has great stability thats easily quilted. The most popular batting for quilters as it is soft, low loft, beathable, washable, and easily accepts detailed stitches.
  • Polyester is thicker but lighter that holds its shape better and favored for cribs and bedding. It has the widest range of lofts & thicknesses made of very durable, man-made fiber. There is no shrinkage when washed, fast-drying, and goes back to shape no matter how many times its washed.
  • Wool is thick yet lightweight thats resistant to creases. It has a low loft but the warmest of all battings, great at regulating your body temperature.
  • Bamboo is processed with fewer toxic chemicals like other batting types, using pollution-free methods with little waste. Environmentally friendly, naturally antibacterial, machine washable, very breathable, and can be hand or machine quilted.
  • Fusible contains a fusible web that eliminates the need for the time consuming steps of pinning or basting.
