Tuscany Premium Polyester batting is superbly soft, drapes well, and is manufactured to the highest industry specifications. Exceptional for hand quilting, it is also prized by machine quilters for the loft that accentuates quilting details.
It is made with the finest siliconized, very fine denier polyester. The fibers are then carded, cross lapped, and resin bonded to retard bearding. This batting may be quilted up to 4” apart and will not shrink when washed. Items made with Hobbs Tuscany Premium Polyester Batting may be machine washed – we recommend all quilts be washed using a delicate cycle and cool water, with no heavy agitation or spinning. Please be especially cautious with front loading washers as the intense spin cycle on these machines can be very hard on quilts. Items made with Hobbs Tuscany Premium Polyester Batting may also be machine dried (again, we recommend a low-heat setting). For more detailed washing information, please see the care instructions on the product packaging.
We recommend that the quilt maker spend some time learning about this product before using it on a major project. Make samples using this batting to see how it launders and how it needles, both by hand and by machine, so that you can obtain the look you want in your final project.
