Pure white, warm cotton fibers are blended with pillow-soft, polyester fibers giving quilters the best of both worlds. Quilted lines and designs are highlighted as stitches sink deep, achieving lofty dimension in the finished quilt.
Warm Blend is manufactured using the same state of the art needle-punch technology that makes Warm & Natural the most highly regarded cotton batting among quilters and crafters world-wide. The same manufacturing process means the same great benefits that you've loved and depended on for all these years.
50% bleached cotton fibers are combined with 50% polyester fibers and punched with hundreds of needles into a strong, thin base material to prevent tearing, shifting or migration.
The needling process holds the fibers together without glue or resins. The evenly layered fibers stay in place inside your quilt even with generations of washings.

Warm Blend is available in 90" and 110" widths by the yard. Also available in craft size cuts.
Shrinkage will be less than 1% with your first washing in hot water. Reduce this further by washing your finished quilt in cold water and line dry or use a low heat setting in your dryer. Please follow these directions if you wish to pre-wash your batt:
Hand wash in a basin or tub with a mild detergent. Do not agitate or spin in your washing machine.
Soak for 20 minutes, then rinse several times.
Squeeze water out. DO NOT WRING. Rolling in a towel will help to remove excess water.
Dry in a cool or warm dryer or allow to dry flat.
Once quilted, Warm Blend can be machine washed and dried again and again without fear of separation or bunching.
