    Quilter's Dream batting is actually 100% cotton and comes in different weights. It's needle punched but not thru a scrim.

    Just so you know - polypropylene is what we commonly call plastic. It is the same thing as is used for grocery store plastic bags and lots of food containers.

    I'm pretty sure my Mountain Mist Blue Ribbon 100% cotton batting is 100% cotton.

    With the WnN, it may be the scrim that is not cotton. WnN is needlepunched through scrim to give it stability.

    I like my MMBR but would not recommend it for hand quilting. It also needs to be quilted no further apart than 2 inches. It is not needlepunched and has no scrim.

    Well, I have not heard from the Warm Company in two days. I have noticed (or at least I think I see this) that the website under Warm and Natural seems to be modified a bit in their description. To me the description is still not clear to the consumer.

    No response is no big deal to me at this point. I still stand by my assumption that when something states 100% cotton batting...that what I hold in my hands should be 100% cotton batting. Not 100% cotton with other stuff added. When you buy 100% poly due to cotton/wool allergies for example, you assume there is no cotton or wool. But that is just my opinion.

    Anyhoo...thanks for everyone's explanations as it has helped to teach me. I will check out the batting suggestions. I appreciate it!
