Warm & NaturalⓇ

Warm & Natural is the preferred batting among quilters world-wide!

Warm & Natural is the finest needle-punched cotton batting! Only 15% of all cotton grown in the USA is the proper length, thickness and color. Out of this 15%, only 5% is clean enough for Warm & Natural! This soft, natural cotton has never been washed or bleached with harsh chemicals. It’s kinder to the environment and kinder to your batting. The cotton undergoes a mechanical cleaning process removing all of the seeds, seed coats, along with the majority of leaf and stem remnants. The remaining tiny plant particles lend a special look to crafts like no other and won’t harm your quilt.

Quilt or tie up to 10″ apart! Quilt Warm & Natural right out of the package, as pre-washing is not necessary. Once quilted, machine wash and dry your finished quilt in cold water. 3% shrinkage can be expected in the first wash with cold water. To achieve an antique puckered look use warm water for 5% shrinkage. Warm & Natural won’t distort when hanging, hooping or when used in quilt frames. It can be used for both batting and as an exterior craft fabric to create stuffed snowmen and rabbits.

The Warm Company is proud to purchase over 4 million pounds of American cotton annually for processing in our American manufacturing facilities by American workers for the American tradition of quilting shared around the world!

Warm & White is the ideal batting for pastel and tone-on-tone fabrics!

Warm & White is The Warm Company’s second highest selling quilt batting enjoying world-wide success for 30 years. Warm & White is everything you love about Warm & Natural with beautiful whitened cotton fibers! The natural cotton fibers undergo a hydrogen peroxide bath to remove all the impurities as well as the natural color.  This safe process leaves the fiber soft and hypoallergenic.  The fiber is processed in the same state of the art needle-punched tradition that made Warm & Natural the most highly regarded quilt batting in the world. Warm & White is the ideal batting for use with bright white, pastel, and tone-on-tone fabrics because Warm & White won’t peek through!  Of course the bright white batting lends itself to soft sculpture snowmen, polar bears and rabbits.

Both Warm & Natural and Warm & White weigh 4 oz. per square yard, but Warm & White feels a little thinner due to the cleaning process.  There is little to no measurable shrinkage in a cold or warm water wash after quilting. When looking for a finished quilt that will remain pristine without puckering around your quilted lines, Warm & White is the perfect choice!

The Warm Company is dedicated to the manufacture of the most innovating quilt battings and fusible webs. Warm 100 is no exception. Warm 100 is the only batting in the world manufactured with 100% Natural Cotton needled into a 100% All Cotton Scrim!

Another first for quilters from The Warm Company!

Were the Earliest Quilters Scientists? The unexplainable comforting power of cotton quilts has been observed for centuries. Love sewn in every stitch is often credited for this phenomenon. While love is undoubtedly a factor, recent discoveries found natural cotton fiber releases low levels of H2O2 (Hydrogen Peroxide), well known as an antiseptic and disinfectant for viruses and bacteria. Is it coincidence that cotton fabric, thread and batting have been preferred and insisted on by quilters all this time? Or is it just another example of quilter’s ingenuity and resourcefulness?

Tips for Using Steam-A-Seam 2 with Wool

To use Steam-A-Seam 2 or Lite Steam-A-Seam 2 with wool, or any dense and sensitive material, you need to iron press both the front and back of your design. If available, using a steam iron is recommended.  Since the “wool” iron setting is a low temperature, you must iron press for a longer amount of time, until the Steam-A-Seam webbing is properly fused. Please use caution as it is possible to burn wool fibers – do not iron press in one area for too long. Press for 45+ seconds and let it set to cool.
