Tuscany Silk bonded batting is made from imported silk filaments with the addition of 10% polyester.
It is then carded and resin bonded to help retard bearding (fiber migration) and allowing the batting to be handled like a blanket.
It can be quilted up to 4" apart and hand washed in tepid water and then laid out to dry flat. It will likely shrink approximately 5%.
Because of silk’s natural ability to breath, it is an excellent choice for airy, lightweight quilts and coverlets.
The Tuscany Silk batting quilts magnificently by hand or machine and is a superb filling material for embroidery.
