    I have never used it myself, but have read very favorable reviews on other sites.

    I use bamboo batting. At first I thought it was thinner but it actually 'hugs' the material and is a lot easier to stipple with.
    But when completed, the quilt is no thinner than using the polyester batting.
    I tend to favour the bamboo batting more.

    I have used it and had no problems. The price was good. I donated a batt to the quilt we were making at the Senior Center and those ladies didn't like it as well. The only problem I have is figuring which side to put up. I may have used it upside down on the quilt we did at the Senior Center which may have been why they didn't like it. I forgot to mention that this was for handquilting.

    i love Dream Bamboo= it is a very nice, soft batting- needles beautifully- washes/drys holds up well- a very nice batting to use.

    I used bamboo batting on a queen size quilt and loved working with it and it is warm. I would use it again.
