    Is there a right and wrong side to warm and natural? I laid mine out this morning and one side feel different from the other. I have the warm and natural needled cotton. It states that it is needle punched. Is this why it feels different on each side. I have not used this in years and can not remember.

    The W&N web site says that the side with the flecks (plant and leaf particles) is the top side, and the whiter side is the bottom.

    I honestly can see how it would make a difference, but if you have a preference, that's fine.

    I understand you get less bearding if you quilt with the "fleck" side up. Your needle is entering and exiting the same way that the batting was needle punched.

    Okay, really did not know. I also did not want to wait any longer to put this together. So I put the rough side down and the smooth side up. This batting also states that due to the needle punch process there is no residue. This was true for I did not see any particles in the batting.
    Thanks for responding.
