Cotton upholstery batting is used in conjunction with upholstery foam to round out edges and corners, provide a little extra fullness, and prevent slippage. This batting shouldn’t be used on its own as it won’t offer a lot of support. Upholstery batting is commonly used for upholstering chair cushions and couches.
Our cotton upholstery batting comes in 27″ wide rolls that are approximately 12 yards long and weigh about 13 pounds. One layer is about 2 inches thick after unrolling, but you can use multiple layers to achieve the thickness you’re looking for. This is a chemical free product that is easy to cut.
If you’re upholstering a cushion with a removable cover, like this box cushion, you may want to use spray adhesive to attach the padding to the upholstery foam.
