Warm Bond is The Warm Company’s 80/20 wadding!
Warm Bond Batting is made with a new and friendlier bonding method. The Warm Company has blended a unique bi-component polyester fibre with natural cotton fibre instead of the old bonding method requiring glue or resins to hold fibres together. This specially engineered fibre has an exterior designed to melt and bind the fibres together, while the centre of the fibre remains solid.
The natural cotton and polyester fibres are blended, layered and lightly needle punched forming the wadding. Through a process known as “calendaring” the wadding is then “S” wrapped through heated rollers, melting the exterior of the polyester fibres and binding them to the natural cotton.
The processing achieves an ultra-light weight batting ideal for summer quilts, hand quilting and especially great when you’re doing heavy machine quilting as Warm Bond stays soft and supple.
Quilt up to 5″ apart. Warm Bond is more delicate than needle-punched batting, but with a little care it is perfect in frames and long arm machine quilting. Machine wash and dry once Warm Bond has been quilted.
