Legacy Cotton Batting
Bolts: 96” wide x 9 yards
Rolls: 120” wide x 30 yards

Legacy 100% Cotton comes in two colors, Natural and White. Natural is for intended for all tones except for white and very light colored quilts. The cream color could show through a very light fabric and also the natural byproducts of cotton could bleed onto a white fabric leaving a brown stain. Therefore, white cotton batting is available. Color is the only difference in these two items.

Cotton does not beard [aka fiber migration to the surface]. ALL cottons can shrink up to 3-5%. Should you use hot temperatures while washing and/or drying a quilt or garment, the fabrics used could shrink 3% if they are not shrunk prior to use. When gentle cycles and cool temperatures are used in washing, a finished quilt or garment made with this 100% cotton batting will be surprisingly durable. Air dry or dry laying flat for best results.

Legacy 100% Cotton allows stitched areas up to 4”. Legacy 100% Cotton batting has a low loft and is best used in machine work. Cotton is a natural and renewable, sustainable fiber that has been used in quilts for centuries. The cotton fiber is strong and yet soft and has proven itself to last. Quilts are not destined for a landfill, yet quilters are conscious of the environment and are making choices to ‘do no harm’ to the earth. The growth and processing of all natural cotton does not harm the environment. It is needle punched and there are no chemicals used. Our cottons are grown and manufactured in the USA.

Legacy Polyester Batting

Bolts: 96” wide x 9 yards
Rolls: 120” wide x 30 yards

Legacy 100% Polyester is made from siliconized polyester for softness. It is bonded to retard bearding [aka fiber migration to the surface] and will not shrink. However, should you use hot temperatures while washing and drying a quilt or garment, the fabrics used could shrink 3% if they are not shrunk prior to use. Excessive laundering can create bearding.

Polyester does not breathe like many natural fibers and therefore could make a very warm bed covering as it traps body warmth. It provides a good deal of loft promoting definition in quilting stitches whether by hand or machine. Poly is extremely easy to hand quilt. The ‘puff’ or loft is often used in the Trapunto technique, where an additional section of batting is placed underneath an area and then quilted for added dimension.

The affordable durability of Polyester has been sought by quilt makers for decades. Needle-punching can cause some fibers to become dense and can create a bearding problem. Bonded Polyesters beard less than needle-punched or thermal bonded items within this type of fiber. The airy nature of this batting has a pleasing bounce to it that returns to its original state when fluffed in a warm dryer. Enjoy the resilience and lofty qualities of our 100% Polyester and stitch up to 4” apart on any project.

 

Legacy Wool Batting

Bolts: 96” wide x 9 yards

Legacy Wool is made from super soft wool. It is bonded to retard bearding [aka fiber migration to the surface] and should not shrink. However, should you use hot temperatures while washing and/or drying a quilt or garment, the fabrics used could shrink 3% if they are not shrunk prior to use. Excessive laundering can create bearding. When gentle cycles and cool temperatures are used when washing, a quilt or garment made with this Wool batting will be surprisingly durable. Air dry for best results.
Stitch areas up to 4” apart on any project.

Legacy Wool batting is the ultimate experience in hand quilting. There is little to no resistance and the lofty nature of super washed wool shows an amazing definition in the stitches. Hand and machine quilters love the results. When you really want to show your quilting workmanship, this is the one to use.
If a sleeping quilt is your goal, super soft washed wool is the answer. It breathes naturally and allows air to pass through, making an excellent summer quilt. Wool has qualities that also keep us warm in the winter. The light weight offers comfort as it does not weigh you down. This makes it perfect for garments. Machine quilters who desire very closely stitched areas use Wool for its softness. When using a finer thread, the quilt remains soft and does not result in a stiff quilt. Prize winning quilt makers demand Wool.
