Made from the finest US grown cotton, Natural Supreme is the thickest loft of batting available. It is great for quilts and is also recommended for kitchen items, such as oven mitts, potholders and hot pads. The batting is produced by cross-lapping and needlepunching and will not lump or shift. The manufacturing process allows needles to easily pass through the batting , despite it's thickness. Like all of Quilter's Dream Cotton Natural Supreme has a high thermal value (R=3.8) which provides great warmth while being light.
