Bosal Acadia Wadding / Batting Info – Autumn Weight
Crafted in Maine for the discerning quilter. This premium wadding / batting certainly lives up to the statement.
- Ideal for Machine Quilting
- Ideal for Hand Quilting
- Ultra stable & soft
- Suitable for repeat & regular machine washing.
As a slightly heavier weight 80/20 wadding / batting, Acadia is slightly firmer than its pure cotton counterparts. This makes it that bit more stable and ideal when a quilt is expected to be washed regularly and repeatedly.
With a guide of stitching up to 8″ apart the wadding is great for machine use but even with this level of stability remains soft to handle.
Ideal for hand use too, Acadia is needle friendly and hand stsitchg will glide through with relative ease. For an even softer hand quilting wadding the Bosal Katahdin Cotton options are ideal.
As an extra touch of quality & care, Bosal Pre Shrink all their waddings for your convenience. This means you don’t have to pre wash the wadding before use and can concentrate on enjoying your project!
We are sure you will be pleased with the quality of this wadding and remember you can always Request A Sample Swatch.

Why The Name Acadia?
Bosal manufacture their waddings in Maine USA. The creator Bob likes to name products after the amazing natural landmarks so when looking for a name for this fabulous 80/20 he selected Acadia which is one of the ‘most fabulous national parks in the states’.
Recommended Quilting Thread
We recommend stitching Bosal Autumn Weight Acadia Wadding with Empress 100% Cotton Quilting Thread. Fine, strong, soft finish & absolutely natural it is an ideal and superb quilting thread.
Pre Use & Care Instructions
Bosal Acadia Autumn Wadding / Batting is pre shrunk and as such does not require pre washing prior to use.
Bosal point out that while they make every effort to ensure zero shrinkage, with a cotton rich wadding this can never be 100% guaranteed and there may be a very slight dimensional movement. This slight movement is no more than you would normally experience when washing a quilt project multiple times and is so slight it is essentially negligible.
General care. Stitch up to 20cms / 8″. Machine wash 30°.
Fibre Content: 80% Cotton / 20% Polyester.
