Nature’s Touch® Natural Blend Batting, made with 80% Ultra Clean Cotton and 20% Polyester, is a soft, durable and substantial batting created for quilters who want cotton with the added benefit of wash-ability and good stitch definition. It can be stitched up to 4in apart and has an expected shrinkage of 2-3%. It has a soft loft, creating less resistance when hand quilted and a soft, quilted finished look. Hand, machine, and longarm quilters all love this blend. Once used in a project, this batting is washable by machine or hand and is dry cleanable.
