    have recently discovered wool batting and i LOVE it! it's more care as it has to be cold washed and laid flat to dry. but it is a dream to quilt with and makes a wonderfully warm quilt. i bought 4 yards when it was on sale at joann's so i don't know the brand. it was $7.50 a yard on sale. so 14.99 normally. wish i'd bought all they had! other than that, i have used wn successfully and have no complaints! does feel thin compared to the wool.
    The only bad days are the ones you don't get.

    I was soooo excited when I saw your post for the warm & natural batting. And then I found my JoAnn's flyer for this sale, and I didn't see anywhere that is listed this batting on sale

    This is the flyer that comes in the mail too. I am in Michigan, and wonder if different states might have different items on sale!!!

    I used W & N on my first quilt. I didn't have any problem hand quilting it but I'm using QD Request on the one I'm doing now. Seems to work much better for hand quilting.

    Well at least I am not alone. I like the 80/20 although I do use the Fairfield since that is easy for me to get inexpensively. I bought Warm and Natural twice. Once when I was doing a demo at a farmers market fair. It was damp in the morning when I set up and the batting stayed damp all day it was a bear trying to quilt the quilt. The second time I bought a package that was on sale and decided to use it to replace my cover on my big board. It smelled horrible when it got wet from spray startch or water and there were big brown stains transfered to my cover and some white I was ironing. I replaced that with 80/20 and haven't had a problem. I am not buying it a 3rd time for sure.

    I have used several different types but W&N is my favorite. I love the density of it. I order king size from JoAnns on line and use a coupon for the best price. Look for the free shipping days.

    I love it. I usually buy it at JoAnn's by the yard when I have a coupon.

    I use Warm & Natural exclusively. I love the low loft and old fashioned wrinkle look. Some do, some don't.

    Sorry, I did not re-read before posting. It should have read " do not like to be w/o my w/n. Be without my warm and natural.

    I believe the $19.99 are on pre-packaged batts. The 60% off is on any cut of fabric. The Joann's I have been to considers W/N a cut of fabric. I buy the whole bolt at that price. I'm in Michigan too.

    Gladyou mentioned that it is good for hand quilting. I just took a beginners hand quilting class and the instructor suggested Warm and Blend which is 50-50 cotton & poly. But I can't find it any place. I use Warm and Natural in my machine quilted quilts and love it. If any one knows where I can order the Warm and Blend, please let me know.

    I like how easy it is to sandwich & the warmth but it doesn't drape well, because it seems a little stiff. I hand quilted the first quilt I made with it & really did my hands in. Had to take a long break to let the tendonitis subside. If I use it again I will machine quilt it or tie it. I think it would be good for wall hangings.

    W & N (by the yard) has been on sale for 50% off for the last two weeks. Yesterday I saw it was still on sale. I don't know if it continues this week; if it does, here is a 25% off total purchase coupon

    I prefer W & N and since my quilts are 100% cotton they shrink together nicely. BUT I have been making many charity quilts the last couple of years and the budget simply won't stretch to the cost of W & N even tho I prefer it and think it is much kinder to my machines than polyester. It also contains scrim which I also prefer my batting to have.

    I've used W&N in many quilts, it's my fav batting next to ther Quilters Dream cottons ... I've never preshrunk it either, it doesn't need it. I want that vintage look when it's washed !! It machine quilts beautifully, and I rarely handquilt anything now except a small project. If you want a softer drape, I'd go with Q Dream or Hobb's -

    I haven't used a Mountain Mist batting in years, but I def would NOT mix any polyester batt with a cotton one. They react totally differently when washed ...

    Well, that explains it. Checked my flyer, NO page #15 .... I'm guessing that page backed the coupons and I didn't bother to check it before I clipped them .... my bad!!! lol

    Thanks for the info

    I love the Warm products. There is a factory near me and the company is incredibly supportive of guilds and quilt groups in this area. They are very highly regarded here.

    Has anyone used the Fusi-boo batting? It says it is heat activated and eliminates basting. That would be a plus in my book if it is easy to quilt.

    Warm and Natural is great stuff. I buy whenever possible at Joann's as long as I have a coupon. I have also tried the Hobbs 80/20 and I like that BUT i did notice that it has thin spots and is lighter in weight than the W/N. Although it is cheaper I think that I will use it for charity quilts and smaller items like table toppers and the W/N for the good quilts. My issue is that it used to be $10.99/yd - very doable with a 50% off coupon. Then Joann's raised the price to $14.99/yd. It happened within the space of 6 months. Wish I knew why!

    Same as everything else... the price of cottonwent way up. Happened with wool too. Although now the price of cotton is falling, but of course we won't see a drop in prices.

    I use Warm & Natural in all of my projects,even the baby quilts that I make. It is expensive but I use my JoAnn coupons 50% and purchase as much as I can afford with the coupons.

    I never use Mountain Mist and if a customer supplies it with her quilt to be quilted, I refuse the batting. I have found it to be awful! I like Warm and Natural, but my favorite are the battings of Quilter's Dream.
