Developed with Harriet Hargrave, the nationally known quilter and author of Heirloom Machine Quilting, Hobbs offers one of the best 80% cotton/20% polyester battings on the market. The combination of long staple cotton fibers and polyester gives you a strong, long wearing batting. It can be quilted as close as 1/4" and as far as 3-1/2" apart. It maintains its loft and needles wonderfully whether you machine or hand quilt. If used straight from the package, it will shrink up to 5% giving you the desired look of antique puckering. Pre-washing will give your quilt a contemporary look. 3-5% shrinkage
