Heirloom® has been an essential part of quality quilting projects for generations. With exceptional depth, loft and dimension, Hobbs Heirloom® Batting gives superior integrity to every quilt.
Hobbs Heirloom Premium Battings Heirloom® Premium 80/20 Cotton Blend Heirloom® Premium Cotton Blend is made from 80% long staple cotton fibers and 20% fine polyester. This combination of fibers creates a strong, longwearing batt and is very easy to handle. The batting is lightly needle punched and treated with a soft resin to provide stability to the fibers and prevent the polyester from bearding. This process makes Heirloom® Cotton Blend Batting uniquely easy to quilt by hand. Heirloom® Premium Cotton Hobbs Heirloom® Premium Cotton will give your projects the traditional flat look of antique quilts without the need for excessive quilting. Cotton is a breathable fiber that provides warmth and comfort. Heirloom® Premium Cotton is easy to quilt by hand or machine and drapes beautifully. Heirloom® Premium Cotton can be quilted as close as ¼” and as far apart as 4”. Close quilting will be very flat, while more space between the quilting lines will yield a slightly higher loft.
Heirloom® Premium Wool Heirloom® Premium Wool batting provides superb insulation. The fiber breathes, allowing excess heat to disperse away from the body. One of the many benefits of wool is that it gives warmth without adding weight. Wool can absorb up to 30% of its own weight in moisture without feeling damp. The tiny fibers trap air which creates insulation in this lightweight batt. In addition, wool batts are naturally mildew resistant and resistant to moth damage when quilted with cotton fabrics. This batting can be quilted up to 4” apart and has excellent loft retention. Heirloom® Wool batting is lightly resin bonded to provide stability and retard fiber migration and bearding.
