    I just bought some bamboo batting - it seems really nice and soft, with a fairly low loft, which I like. I usually buy Warm and White (or Warm and Natural). Has any one else used it, and what do you think?

    I used it for a quilt about two years ago. I liked it, but somehow I remember it costing more than Warm and Natural. It washed well. It was only my second quilt, so if it sewed poorly or something, I did not know enough to know.

    I will be reading this thread to see what others say.

    I love it. I think it drapes beautifully. It is also hypoallergenic.

    I have used bamboo and really like it. Very soft, easy to needle, yes it costs a little more but would use it for a special project for a special someone.

    I've used it and like it. I was buying it since it's "green" since bamboo grows so quickly. Well, some research on this board, bamboo fiber is really difficult to make from the bamboo and involves a ton of chemicals and is awful for the environment. So I'm back to my Warm and Natural.

    I have used it in customer quilts. I have to say that I do like it better than W&N. It doesn't create a bunch of lint build up and it's really soft. It doesn't bunch up like w&N either. SO that my perspective.

    I bought a package of Bamboo batting when I got a 60% off coupon from JoAnn's and used it on a quilt I made for a gift. I really liked the way it turned out. My only concern was that this particular batt seemed to generate more fuzz in my bobbin case than the Warm and Natural I have been using. Hadn't changed thread type so I assumed the extra fuzz was coming from the batting. Anybody else notice this?
