Well, I don't think you are strange. I HATE to touch cotton balls! It compares to nails on a chalkboard for me. :roll:

thanks for all the responses. i love hearing about all our different quirks.
i sure won't quit making quilts because i don't like the feel of batting (pretty much any kind), i will just deal and get it covered up asap.

No you are not weird. My DIL cousin will pass out if you touch her with a cotton ball. And me, I love my kitties but I don't like them rubbing on me it feel yucky.

No you are not weird. I have the same problem. I also don't like to touch it. I feel the same way about cotton in asprin bottles or in anything else.

I'm finding out that I'm not as weird as I thought I was....thought it was just me that couldn't stand the cotton squeaking when I touched it.

well ruth, so far it is every kind of batting. i haven't worked with wool or some of the more exotic types.
don't get me wrong. i work with batting and won't stop. i love the way batting makes a quilt look and feel after it is confined inside the 2 layers of fabric. i just don't care for the way it feels.
hey, i'm tough :!: i can take it :!: :wink:

for me, it's when my kids lick food off of their clothes - gives me goosebumps and makes my bones shiver to even think about that texture of the tongue against the cotton weave...UGH! :?

As a child I couldn't stand the feel of velvet.... fortunately I grew out of it.... have had a couple of lounge suits which have had the feel of velvet and also lounge curtains.... doesn't bother me now that I am older... lets say I have matured..... but I won't eat bananas, and that is another subject !!! Been like that all my life but like banana muffins and banana cake... but only about the last 5 years..... and I am ancient !!!

My oldest daughter actually turns pale if she has to touch a cotton ball. She always has to have one of her children pull the cotton out of the new bottle of Tylenol. She was very sensitive to touch as a child too. I've never known anyone but her that has that.
I have a phobia also. I haven't been on an escalator since I was a child. Believe me, it's not easy not to use escalators, but even if the elevator is buried way in the back of no where, I will find it and use that instead. I can not put my foot on that moving step. I want to, but I just can't. Weird, eh?
