Batting Tuscany Silk batting - Crib size - 45" x 60"

Tuscany Silk batting is supple, soft and drapes like no other batting. The luxurious feel is ideal for both quilts and garments. Silk has the natural ability to breath, making it an excellent choice for airy, lightweight quilts and coverlets. It provides excellent warmth with very little weight.

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.

We suggest washing items made with Hobbs Tuscany Silk Batting by hand, or by machine using a delicate cycle and cool water, with no heavy agitation or spinning. Be especially cautious with front loading washers as the intense spin cycle on these machines can be very hard on quilts. To dry items made with this batting, you may place the washed quilt in a cool dryer for 5-10 minutes to start the drying process, but the quilt should then be air-dryed. 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.
