Default Alternative to Warm and Natural batting

I really like using W&N in baby quilts, but it has become hard to find since Joannís stopped carrying it. What is a similar batting I can get in packages, not rolls? I would prefer mail ordering from a major supplier. I really need the packages batting because I do a lot of my quilting in my RV with extremely limited space.

I really like Hobbs 80/20 and I get it at Michael's. I buy the queen size roll in a package and usually only buy it when I have a coupon.

get on batting supersale's mailing list. They carry several brands and alternate which goes on sale. You can buy just 1 package and the price includes shipping. I buy Hobbs 80/20 which I prefer over Warm & Natural. Hobbs has a nicer "hand" and quilts up so easily

Walmart carries Warm and Natural- at least in my neck of the woods.

I think it's slightly fluffier, which is why I like it better. It's still thin, but just fluffy enough to make the quilting look good.

I prefer Quilters Dream Cotton Select and find the price at my local quilt shop is equal to that on Amazon.com, and I can get it right away rather than wait for it to ship.

FYI I saw one queen size package of W & N at my local Wal-Mart for $20 yesterday.

I got a call yesterday from a quilting friend asking about Warm and Natural. Her husband picked up a package of W&N at Walmart in our area, southwest Michigan, and she wanted to know it if was a good product. I told her it was my personal favorite. But more importantly to this thread, Yes, Walmart is carrying W&N.
