You know I have loved quilting my quilts using the Tuscany Silk Batting by Hobbs Bonded Fibers. Now, I want you to have a chance to try it if you haven’t used this batting before. I am giving away a throw size (60″ square) Tuscany Silk Batting!!!!
Tuscany Silk bonded batting is made from imported silk filaments with the addition of 10% polyester. It is then carded and resin bonded to help retard bearding (fiber migration) and allowing the batting to be handled like a blanket. It can be quilted up to 4″ apart and hand washed in tepid water and lay out to dry flat. It will likely shrink approximately 5%. Because of silk’s natural ability to breath, it is an excellent choice for airy, light weight quilts and coverlets. The Tuscany Silk batting quilts magnificently by hand or machine and is a superb filling material for embroidery.
