Wadding Fabric

Wadding fabric, also known as batting or quilt batting, is a versatile material primarily used in quilting and sewing. It serves multiple purposes, including:

  • Insulation: It provides thermal insulation to quilts and blankets, retaining warmth.

  • Loft: This allows quilters and crafters to create textured and plush designs in their projects.

  • Quilting: Placed between the quilt top and backing fabric, it gives quilts their characteristic puffiness.

  • Padding: It adds cushioning and heat resistance to items.

  • Upholstery: Can soften and add thickness to furniture, cushions and home decor.

  • Costumes: Useful for creating bulky costume parts.

  • DIY Crafts: Popular in crafting, including stuffed animals and pillows.

The type of wadding fabric you choose depends on the specific project's requirements, such as desired thickness, warmth, and texture. There are various types of wadding materials available, each with its unique characteristics.
