"Having tried a lot of other battings, now I only use Matilda's Own Wool / Cotton mix - it's not heavy at all, quilts beautifully and makes a cosy quilt.I love it.

I was so impressed I ordered a whole roll of it recently because I go through so much of it....

I'm telling myself that having the roll of batting there is encouraging me to finish the stack of quilt tops in the sewing room."

- Liz, a Happy Customer
By Now, You've made a few quilts. And you realise......

Quality Quilt Batting doesn't come cheap.
Buying by the Meter Adds Up. FAST.


But you still have So. Many. Quilts to make...


I know. I feel the same.

Having worked for a decade or so behind the scene in the clothing industry, I was formally trained as a Fashion Designer - and later spent 10 years teaching others the joy of sewing & patchwork quilting. I'm constantly inspired by new fabric - that means I have more than one project on the go, ALL the time.

So I know that buying batting by the meter end up costing a fortune.

There has to be a better way... right?

There is no doubt you should Never Skim on Quality, because YOUR handmade quilts have taken you hours, day, months - even YEARS - to complete. That's Why...

Compromising Quality for the sake of Saving... Just Doesn't Make Sense.



What's the solution, then?

The Seasoned Quilter's Secret of SAVING is simple - Buy Batting by the Whole Roll.

And
that's why they go with 60% Wool / 40% Cotton (160 gsm) by Matilda's Own.




You are looking at a Whole Roll of Batting in 

60% Wool & 40% Cotton

Approximate Measurement: 
30 mts x 240cm or 98' feet x 94" inches


Note: Teddy Bear NOT included. We sell batting only.


How thick is this wool / cotton batting? 


Roughly 3-4 mm... by my ruler :-)

Matilda's Own describes it as "Low to Medium Loft" - a little bit thicker than pure cotton or bamboo.

100% cotton and 100% bambbo battings are flat and resemble felt, with little to no loft (which is the proper term for "fluffiness"). 100% Wool battings tend to be puffier and very resilient, but can be tricky to quilt because it is also quite bouncy!

The thickness of this wool / cotton batting is comparable to the pure cotton or bamboo batting with a bit more "loft" from the wool (have a look at the close-up photo below) - it is NOT as thick and fluffy as the artificial polyester batting - that means it is easier to quilt!






What's so good about this wool / cotton batting?


Matilda's Own Wool / Cotton (sometimes know as Cotton / Wool) batting was created based on demand from Australia's quilters.

  • Resilient and Give Great Stitch Definition - shows off your quilting!
  • Warm in Winter, Cool in Summer - comfortable for everyday use
  • Minimal Shrinkage - no needs to pre-shrink!
  • Soft & Easy to Quilt - by Hand or Machine
  • No Resin, Spray or Bonding - Hypoallogenic & Suitable for Sensitive ones!

It has a slightly higher loft than 100% cotton, with the warmth of wool and the softness of cotton. If you love wool and cotton, you'd love this blend - because it gives you the best of both worlds!


What exactly is in this batting?



 60% Wool
40% Cotton


Containing only natural fibres, this batting will keep you and your family comfortable in any area too warm for heavy wool and cold enough to need a little warmth.

That's because cotton breathes - so it's cool in the summer and warm in the winter.

Wool also breathes, it traps air and also absorbs moistures. This means you stay warm without being sweaty, and comfortable even in damp climates.




How cool or warm is this batting, compares to polyester or polyester blends?


Wool is warmer than cotton but cooler than polyester in summer. And bamboo is the coolest of them all.

Polyester does not breath - while it seems warm all year round it only feels that way because it traps your body heat and moisture without air circulation (think polyester in clothing).

Natural fibres breath, so air can circulate and keep our skin in comfortable condition through out the night so your family can sleep better. The little air pockets traped in the batting is what keeps us warm without feeling clammy. Nice!




Note: Teddy Bear is NOT included. We sell batting only.

Does this batting shrink?


When it comes to shrinkage, ALL needle-punched waddings / battings (which covers just about every brand you can buy) have it, no matter what type of natural fibre (i.e. cotton, bamboo, wool, or any mixture from these).

The manufacturer says there is a 2.5 % shrinkage... which gives your quilt that loved-in look and feel.

As with all of Matilda's Own products, this batting is pre-washed, pre-shrunk, moth proofed and antibacterially treated. It contains no nasties like chemical, resin, or synthetic (man-made) fibre.





I heard that "bearding" can a problem with wool batting. What's "bearding"?



Ah, Bearding, the unsightly problem of the fibres from the batting working their way through the surface of quilt. This can be a common problem with polyester and poor quality wool battings.

Matilda's Own has perfected their techniques with wool and produced some of the most trust-worthy wool and wool-blend batting in the world, by using only the best quality wool fibres (which we have plenty of in Australia!) and running their needle punch machine at the slowest speed posiible.

While taking long to produce means it takes longer and costs more, the end results are well worth the wait.

You get such a soft and even finish, that bearding is no longer an issue.

So you don't have to worry about it. Hooray!!



How is this wool / cotton batting made?


The proper term is "needle-punched".

It means loose wool & cotton fibres have been put through a machine that has millions of needles (but no thread), and the loose fibres are being "punched" into whole pieces before being rolled into huge rolls.

Think of it like how they make felt - there is no weaving involved and that's why the fibres can still move (and go to pieces in the wash).....

This movement is what causes the shrinkage.... and just like pure cotton battings, most quilters are very happy with the effect this shrinkage produces - not only does it softens the quilts, but it "ages" the quilt instantly and gives them that beautiful vintage look and feel that says "I'm well-loved".

Note: Teddy Bear NOT included. We sell batting only.


Can I pre-wash the wool / cotton batting?


No. Only wash your quilt when it is ALL finished, so the fibres in the batting are encased inside your fabric and not exposed - this way you won't end up with fluffy pieces everywhere!




"I LOVE this batting!!

I am a new quilter, and I was looking for a wadding that was not too heavy, not too thick, but warm enough for winter and not too hot for summer.
 
This is a beautiful and soft batting doing the job perfectly. AND, it is exactly the size I need which means I can get into the quilting straight away :)

Really, I highly recommend you try this and the price is really good."


- Erica, a Happy Customer


I know that you're a savvy quilter
who cares about more than just sewing.



Matilda's Own wool / cotton batting satisfies both of what you have in mind: it is environmentally friendly in its production, and it is probably the softest & warmest batting / wadding I have ever come across.

Although cotton has had a poor reputation in the past for its effect on the environment, all cotton fibre used in the manufacture of Matilda's Own batting is sourced from a select group of Australia's most environmentally concerned farmers.

These young farmers have developed new low-water usage techniques and are actively improving the standards set by organic farmers in the use of insecticides so that we can all enjoy a sustainable and environmentally-friendly future.

It feels so soft and so warm.... without the price tag of silk batting or even 100% wool batting!


Now, Let's have a closer look that the fibres.....




 
Wool




Wool makes an ideal bedding material because....
  • it provides lightness and insulation against cold. It stays comfortable all year round.
  • wool transfers moisture away from your skin, helping maintain an even body temperature throughout the night - so you get a deeper and more restful sleep!
  • it is hypoallergenic and has natural resistance to mould, mildew and dustmites which may initiate allergic reactions. 
  • wool is flame-resistant and difficult to ignite. It won’t melt like polyester, it’s slow burning, and it tends to self-extinguish making it a safer choice for fabrics in the home, use in the hospitality industry, and use as hospital bedding.
  • wool fibres are easy-care and long-lasting so your quilt will be too!

Wool is a smart choice for sustainability because it has almost NO carbon footprint.

It is a renewable resource because it is the clippings of sheep and lamb fleece. Wool processing does not require harsh chemicals - just warm soapy water. Products made of wool or wool blend can last for decades and when their use is over the wool is biodegradable.

Most importantly: we Aussies produced a lot of it right here (yay to our farmers)!

 
Cotton



The benefits of cotton are numerous....

Cotton is hypoallergenic and dust-mite resistant, which means it is a great choice of material for people who suffer from asthma or allergies, or those who have sensitive skin prone to irritation.

As a fibre, cotton allow for better air circulation, which helps remove and absorb body moisture, drawing heat away from the skin and keeping the body cool and dry. Also, because cotton breathes better than most other fibres, it's the right choice to keep you cool in hot, humid weather.

For people concerned with environmental issues, cotton is biodegradable and a renewable resource.

There are several reasons why cotton is popular. First of all, yields are high - you get a lot of fabrics per acre. Secondly, it can grow across much of the world - all that is required is a frost-free growing season, plenty of sun, and around 20-50 inches of rain.

There are huge areas across the globe that are warm enough and sunny enough, and water is usually provided at least in part by irrigation, that's why the world uses cotton more than any other natural fibre.

It's also worth remembering that cotton plant is versatile. During processing, less than 10% of it is lost or deemed non-usable. While it is primarily grown and used to make textiles, other parts of the cotton plant are put to good use so there is very little wastage!




Matilda's Own Wool / Cotton batting is your choice because:


Everyone knows that Matilda's Own is the most trusted name in the quilt world, because they only use the highest quality Australian materials and processes combined to produce the best batting with is:

  • Needle punched to limit distortion so your quilt will always hang straight and drape nicely - like a show piece!
  • Ideal for machine quilting because it is so soft and light weight - get your quilt done before you know it...

  • No chemicals or bleaching - you wouldn't like your kids to wear these, so why would you want them to sleep under it?

  • Made especially for Quilters under stringent standards - you know that you're getting the real deal.
 




"This stuff is great, I've used it inside several quilts that get use every day and have been washed a few times each.

It's just the right thickness, sturdy, warm, and much nicer than the cheap polyester layered crap.

After having a hard time locating it, I found it available through your site. Great experience. I would highly recommend this product and your services."


- Angela, a Happy Customer


Why buy wool / cotton?


Because you want to be responsible for the carbon footprint of your hobby.

Both wool and cotton are renewable resources - the harvesting of wool and cotton do no harm to the sheep or the cotton plants. And they can regrow for more harvests.

Being natural fibres, both wool and cotton are biodegradable - that means when they have eventually served their use in your quilt (which will take many years, even generations), they will break down easily - instead of clogging up landfill like man-made or petrolieum-based materials such as polyester.

Cotton and wool are both versatile materials. Turning them into fibres and textile products produce very little waste, and a lot of by-products are created during the process so they are ecomonical too!

The most compelling reason to use Matilda's Own wool / cotton batting is because it is produced locally - the wool and cotton are sourced from Australian farmers, who receive a fair price for producing top quality raw materials.

The batting itself is made in-house at Matilda's Own workshop in Victoria. 


Nothing beats the satisfaction from supporting your local industry.....
and you get to Enjoy Quilting with the Best quality batting too!






Who's behind the "Matilda's Own" brand?


A local Melbourne family business called Victorian Textiles.

Victorian Textiles was incorporated in 2000 and is managed by husband and wife team, Tony and Yumi Sullivan. The family has over 60 years experience in the textiles industry, with Tony being the third generation.


Tony has been an agent for many of the large textile and notion traders in Australia since his return from Japan in 1987 and this provided him with the opportunity to recognise some of the deficiencies in the current supply of patchwork products.

So Victorian Textiles was formed and they are continually addressing some of these short falls.

Many team meambers of Matilda's Own have practical experience in the patchwork industry, from retail, teaching and long arm quilting, while others have invaluable experience from having owned their own businesses.

This means YOU will have peace of mind, knowing that the products you buy come from a reputable family who cares about quilts as much as you do!


Note: Teddy Bear is NOT included. This listing is for ONE batting only.


Did You Know...?


Wool Cotton batting holds 3 times more moisture than its own weight and will not allow moisture to build up on you!

If you have been looking for a comfortable bedding material for the elusive good night's sleep, give this a try and feel totally refreshed in the morning....


  

Care Instructions


To ensure your batting lasts as long as your quilt, please take the best of care when washing.

The batting is machine washable. While recommended to wash with a suitable pH-neutral, low phosphate fabric wash, I have found that wool mix does a pretty good job, too.


 




"I am making my first quilt and this batting was recommended to me.

I don't have much experience with other batting, but this was easy to work with and the result was a very cozy quilt. I was very pleased when it actually arrived faster than I expected.

Now that I have used (and loved) this batting, I will definitely recommend it to others too. Give it a go!"

- Stephanie, a New Quilter



How do you wash a handmade patchwork quilt, anyway?

In the washing machine, actually!

Front loader is best, because it is a gentler machine. Put your quit inside a doona cover if you want to make sure the stitches don't catch.

Most quilts can be washed in warm settings (like you do for coloured clothes) and they will generally shrink marginally to give you that authentic vintage crinkle.

This is the sort of worn-in characters that gives your quilt a cozy, loved look and feel. Enjoy!


Note: Teddy Bear NOT included. We sell batting only.


When you try to do machine quilting WITHOUT the correct batting, you will find:
  1. Your quilt will shift and bunch up, the batting fibres might move and give you uneven thickness.
  2. You have a hard time with even stitches because the wrong batting makes it hard to control.
  3. Worse of all, it's very likely that you will finish the quilt only to realise months later that it is not comfortable to sleep under or doesn't wash well at all.

Why?

Because NOT all batting are suitable for machine quilting
(that's right. Some types are better suited for hand quilting and vice versa).

An ideal batting for machine quilting.....

..... that features a needle punched fiber blanket 
..... with a smooth drape and a thin scrim to prevent stretching and bunching.

"IMHO this is the best batting in the world.

I generally use this batting for only my best quilts, as it's a little more $$$ than the poly-blends,  but I'm starting to use it more and more.

I love how easy it is to machine quilt, which I do with a darning foot on my Bernina, not on one of those nifty long-arm machines.

It's easy to pin and maneuver & the weight is exactly my preference. Great quality product!"


- Anne, a Happy Customer
