Since Connecting Threads is having a batting sale I'm going to get a couple to have on hand. I've used the Hobbs 80/20 in the past and generally like it. I mostly hand quilt when I do the quilting myself. I'm thinking about trying the 100% cotton, but am curious to what all you quilters think of the two. Has anyone used both and what are the real differences?
Would both be of similar weight/loft?
Would both needle similarly when hand quilting?
Looks like both are quilted about the same distance (4") and have similar shrinkage (3-5%).
I've also used the Hobbs Wool and love it, but only purchase for very special quilts due to the cost.
