Environmentally friendly and a true dream to work with, Quilter's Dream Batting Natural Select is produced from the finest cotton grown in the US. Whether you are quilting by hand or by machine you will find this batting exceptionally easy to work with; needles simply glide through Quilter's Dream Cotton because of its special design. The batting is produced by cross-lapping and needlepunching and will not lump or shift. Natural Select is the natural color of cotton and is a mid-loft weight which makes it great for crafting. Like all of Quilter's Dream Cotton batting Natural Select has a high thermal value (R=3.8), which provides great warmth while being light.
