    I am working on the premiee quilts...I am not sure which to use between as batting? I have flannel which seems thin and I have warm and natural which is ok but not sure if too thick? It doesn't seem too thick? What would you use. i have checked websites but just wondered if anyone here has made any?

    I would use flannel because of its flexibility. WnN is relatively stiff, especially for a small quilt. Just be sure to prewash and dry the flannel to shrink it before layering.

    I've always used flannel that I preshrink in warm water and a hot dryer. I think it wraps around these precious bundles better!

    Hugs,

    Flannel is much softer and pliable. If warmth is what you need I would maybe think about fleece.

    I would ask the hospital what they would prefer. A quick Google search revealed that there are many different 'requirements', depending on the hospital. Some say no batting, some say cotton batting, some say no quilting, some say quilting is required to muffle noise (gotta wonder about that one :shock: ), some even say no yellow fabric. Your safest bet would be to ask the neonatal unit at the hospital where you plan to donate them.

    Does flannel have any wool in it. I know some people are allergic to wool.

    I think flannel is usually 100% cotton. All the flannel we have at my store is 100% cotton, anyway.


    Maybe you could try two layers of flannel, so it's not so thin, but still thinner than the w&n batting...
