Why The Name Katahdin?
Bosal manufacture their waddings in Maine USA. The highest mountain in the state is Mount Katahdin which was named by the Penobscot Indians. Translated it means ‘The Greatest Mountain’.
With a love of his home state, when Bob came to name his premium quality natural wadding it seemed simple – call it Katahdin as it is ‘The Greatest Wadding’.
Recommended Quilting Thread
We recommend stitching Bosal Autumn Weight Katahdin 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 Katahdin Summer 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 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: 100% pure natural cotton.
