Thanks in advance, to all you wonderful people, for your expertise!
I have a bunch of the Warm and Natural. And, I like it very much. I find it lays flat really really well. But, when it is gone, I'm am going to buy the Hobbs 80/20. I find it "crinkles" nice when you wash it. So, it really is about how you want your quilts to lay. I am certain there are other threads (conversation topics) here on the board that have a lot of info also.
Warm and Natural is 100% cotton, lays flat, and drapes really well. After washing it gives it that nice old time crinkled look. Hobbs 80/20 is 80% cotton and 20% poly. It has a nice very, very, low loft (compared to 100% poly). It quilts nicely. It is the one I use most of the time when quilting at work and what most customers want. I have not found an 80/20 in white, so when a customer has a quilt in white, I suggest the Warm and White. It will keep the white part from looking dingy.
