Heirloom Premium 80/20 Bleached Cotton Blend is highly recommended for white or very light colored quilts. The bleached cotton fibers provide a very white batting that will not cause a shadow effect on the colors of a light quilt top.
Bleached Cotton Blend is manufactured in the same manner as our Premium 80/20 in natural cotton. For this product the batting is made with 80% bleached cotton and 20% fine polyester. It is lightly needle punched and resin bonded to provide exceptional strength and durability.
Bleached 80/20 is wonderful to quilt by hand or machine. Close quilting yields a flat low loft appearance while more space between stitching lines yields a slightly higher loft. You may experience shrinkage of 3-5% and it may be quilted up to 4in apart.
