This Tuscany batt is a blend of 90% very fine imported silk filaments and 10% fine polyester. It is carded and resin bonded to help retard bearding and fiber migration. Unlike other silk battings, it need not be handled with gloves or encased in cheesecloth. It quilts magnificently by hand or machine.
For best results, we suggest that you hand wash your quilts/garments in cool water and dry them flat. If you prefer to wash by machine, do so with caution. For more detailed washing information see our Frequently Asked Questions. You may experience shrinkage of 3-5% and it may be quilted up to 4” apart.
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.
