Our bamboo batting is made in the USA with the softest 100% bamboo fibers. We use no chemicals and no bleaching, giving our batting a soft, natural color. Bamboo is a naturally green, eco-friendly fiber. It has an exceptionally soft feel, leaving your finished product with a nice, soft drape. In addition to its softness, bamboo has unique, natural anti-bacterial properties. It is breathable, easy drying and durable. Bamboo fibers we use are certified by the US National Organic Program (NOP) as Organic Base, grown from a farm certified by OCIA International (FARM-ACCREDITED) as Organic Crop. Weight is 4 oz. per sq. yd., 3 to 5% shrinkage when washed, machine or hand quilt up to 10” apart. Do not machine wash or dry batting before quilting. Wash your quilt after completion using a mild detergent and delicate cycle, or by hand. Tumble dry on low or lay flat and let dry naturally. If pre-washing is desired, hand wash using cool water and mild detergent. Soak for 15 minutes, squeeze out excess moisture by rolling in a dry towel. Dry by laying flat.
