    OHHHHHH!!! I am really in love with it. I just got out of the wash last night two small doll quilts made with bamboo batting. and they are really really really wonderful. i can't wait till I get my ds's twin done and in the wash to see how a large one turns out. but so far it is really really nice. I got a 100% bamboo from wintextiles. they do a lot of the larger quilt shows. When the quilt show comes back in march ish to the KC area I plan on getting more. if we have the money to do it. I would love to get a whole roll but hubby would have a porcupine if i did. if you can try even a small size, i would give it a try. you might find that you really like it. there are probably cheaper battings but I really like this one. (got expensive tastes i guess. hehe) I just had to share it with you guys because hubby doesn't get it.

    (Green with envy!!) I saw some samples on a display board at our fabric store and thought "OMG! What is THIS?". It felt sooooo nice! Then I saw the price and nearly choked. I'll have to wait until after Christmas before I can splurge..... unless Santa wants to bring me some :) I've been good....sorta!

    JoAnn's has it. I got a king size batting last year with the half off coupon and it was worth it.

    I have not used it but have felt samples in the store and it sure felt wonderful. I will have to check out Joann's here and see if I can try some.

    I looked at Joanns and theirs is actually not 100% bamboo. it is like 80/20 or something. still nice but if you can try a 100% you will really like it a lot. But that is if i remember right.

    How closely do you have to quilt bamboo?
