If you want to use wool, you will get a warm but lighter weight quilt. I suggest Hobbs Tuscany Wool or Quilters Dream wool batts. If you want a really high quality wool find alpaca batting. Alpaca is expensive but is a wonderful fiber to work with and quilts up like a dream!
If you are wanting a fiber that will breathe but still keep you warm but not too warm, you might want to try bamboo batting. Once again, it's expensive but is very nice to work with.
For adding a bit of weight, you might look at Fairfield batting 60/40 or 50/50 blend batts.

    I have been using Warm and Natural for quite sometime now but I am always cold and don't find them very warm. I only have one full size quilt done with Warm and Natural and it was machine quilted, does anyone know if that makes a difference as it is extremely flat.
