Heirloom Premium 80/20 Black Cotton Blend is highly recommended for quilt tops created in black, navy or other darker colors. It is made using dyed cotton fibers to provide quilters with a batting that will not create light fiber lint on the quilt top during the quilting process.
This product is manufactured in the same manner as the Premium 80/20 in the natural cotton. The batting is made with 80% dyed cotton and 20% polyester. It is lightly needle punched and resin bonded to provide exceptional strength and durability.
Black Cotton Blend is wonderful to quilt by hand or machine. Close quilting yields a flat low loft appearance while more spaces between the stitching lines yields a slightly higher loft. You may experience shrinkage of 3-5% and it may be quilted up to 4 in. apart.
More than one yard purchased at the same time will be cut as a continuous piece.
