Default Very thin wadding/batting

On Saturday I went to a bag making at a Bibelot shop in Leek, "Queen of the Moorlands" England. See picture

One of the other ladies was given a very thin batting/wadding. It looked almost like bondaweb when using for applique without paper.

The tutor or anyone there knew the name of it. Does anyone out there in the Ethernet know please. I think it would be very good for quilted clothing ie as in my jacket I made. Or table cloths tray covers etc where a thicker batting causes wobble.

Thanks Knitette . Looked at this is it a thin poly? This was even thinner than the thinnest poly I have ever seen.

Yes - it's 100% poly. It's thinner and 'floppier' than anything else I've seen at my LQS.

I have never heard of wadding before. Sounds like it would be good for a table cloth.

Wadding is batting in England and other parts of the world.

From your description maybe it was an interfacing/stabilizer instead of a batting? Interfacing's can be found in many weights and do work well in bags, clothes and table projects when battings can just be too much

I thought exactly the same but was told by the tutor it was wadding/batting she had purchased a roll of a few years before but lost any information. It did look like stabilizer.

Hobbs Thermore is a thin wadding and is available in the UK, although I've never (so far) used it. I've seen it at the Cotton Patch in Birmingham. I'm sure its available in other places too.

Going by look I think it was more like the interfacing.
