This is the first time I’ve used high-loft wool batting in a quilt. Ellen, who is buying my Solstice quilt requested it. I got the batting from St Peter Woolen Mill in Minnesota.
It was kind of like working with cotton candy, except it isn’t sticky. All that fluff just disappears when you pass it under the foot of the sewing machine.
It was a little slower going, but not difficult to work with. I put the ties closer together, about 5 inches apart. It sure is fluffy and light. Almost feels like it want’s to stand up on its own. I like the way the fabric puffs up around the ties.
The wool batting is more expensive than the cotton batting and the quilt can’t be washed or dried in a machine, but I’d be willing to use it again if someone wanted it. It gives the quilt a very different look and feel.
