    Fairfield Batting

    Does anyone regularly use the Fairfield 80/20 batting from JoAnn's. I am looking for an 80/20 Batting to be able to provide as a batting choice for my customers who I long-arm for. I ordered some Hobbs 80/20 recently but used one and I did not like the quality of it as it was fairly thin. I actually could not tell the diference in teh Hobs 80/20 batting and the Hobbs 100% cotton batting. I do use the Hobbs Polydown regularly and for 100% cotton batting I like the Cream Rose from JoAnn's or Warm and Natural. Now I just need to find an 80/20 batting that I can offer my customers who want an 80/20 batting. Any thoughts?

    I have used it, it is ok. It is pretty thin. Hobbs 80/20 or quilters dream is much nicer. I found fairfields Nature-Fil batting to be really nice, it is really soft. It is a 50/50 bamboo and cotton blend.

    I've always liked Hobbs 80/20, never had a bad one. I went to a class where the teacher said she had experienced a lesser quality in the Hobbs so she now uses Legacy 80/20 (by Pellon)

    I love the Fairfield Softtouch. Sorry, can't remember off the top of my head what the content is.
