Need info on Wool Batting
I am going to be making a quilt for my husband who is always cold. He wants one with wool batting. I have always used Warm and Natural Cotton Batting and I am finding that my search for information is getting conflicting results.
Have you used wool batting? What brand did you use? Did you quilt it by machine? Did you wash it in the washing machine and dry it in the dryer. What was your shrinkage?
I want to be able to wash it in the washing machine and dry it in the dryer. If I can't do this, it is useless to me. I will be quilting this with my home machine and I don't see having any problem with that part. I do not prewash any of my fabrics prior to assembly and I do like the crinkle look when it is washed and dried with the batting after quilting. I have no problem with quilting even 3" apart.
Love to hear your experiences.
