    I have not used the Warm and Natural Batting before, and it has a lot of wrinkles in it. I am doing some table runners for Christmas gifts and wondered what was the best way to get the wrinkles out. Thanks for your help.

    Open it up and lay it out for a couple of hours.

    I have steamed it with my iron and hand smoothed it. I have also ironed it with/without steam :D:D:D

    I just sprayed (mist) some water all over, spread it with my hands and let it sit overnight. It worked.

    Big pieces I have hung over the banister to relax. When there wasn't time, I have tossed them in the dryer with a damp towel. Usually, smoothing them out will be just fine.

    I usually preshrink my batts but when I don't I throw them in the dryer with a wet towel for 10-15 mins, take it out and smooth on a bed till it cools, very few wrinkles left.
