    Ione, maybe you would like to consider making the top from wool instead of cotton. That makes the warmest quilts of all.

    Wool batting is the way to go. I sleep with just a wool quilt and stay plenty warm and that's with the heat turned off in Oregon in December. My other quilts, I'd freeze to death.

    Any clothing I put on that has any % of wool in it make me itch immediately. I would be afraid to use a wool batting for that reason. Does anyone have any experience with that scenario?

    I made a wool batt quilt for my son who is wool sensitive. He's using it and loving it. Interestingly, most people who are sensitive to wool are also lactose, or milk, intolerant. Important to know for kids quilts especially. But since my son is both, i guess it's not so important to know after all. Lol.
