Heirloom Premium 100% Bleached Cotton is created specifically for use on light colored quilts. This product is very similar to Heirloom® Natural, but is distinguished by the crisp white color that will not shadow through a white or light colored quilt top.
Heirloom Bleached is made with the finest cotton available. It is very clean, bleached long staple virgin cotton and proudly displays the Cotton Incorporated Seal. Heirloom Bleached is a thin flat batting that resists bunching or shifting. Soft and gentle, cotton batting is perfect for quilts. It becomes softer after each washing. 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.
