Thank you so much for your replies. It certainly helps with making an 'informed' decision.

I've used it several times - no problems at all. Light and lofty. Also, no problem washing/ drying on air only.

Wool is my go-to batting. I like warm quilts and wool seems to do the trick. I have had no problem with it bearding and it washes and dries in the dryer beautifully. It also is easy to machine quilt.

I've used Dream wool batting, and had the quilt professionally quilted...it draped beautifully. Would not hesitate to use it again.

I've used wool batting once. Cannot remember brand or where I bought it. It was on my mom's 80th birthday quilt. It quilted beautifully and I loved working with it. My mom loves it for her winter warm blanket (her words) since she lives in NH. She also loved the quilt as did my siblings. My quilt inspectors (cats) also loved the quilt.

I will use wool again as a batting.

I have used quite a few different battings but Hobbs Wool batting is my favorite. I wish it wasnít so expensive but Connecting Threads often has it on sale and then the price isnít too bad.

Me too!! I use QD and it drapes beautifully, is fluffier and warmer than W&N.

20150602_204310.jpgThis is one of my quilt inspectors testing my mom's quilt quilt for softness. She thought it quite comfy.

This is the 1st time I used wool batting. Loved working with it. My mom loves this quilt for it's warmth but it's not heavy to sleep under - her words.
