Wool batting is great! It has great loft, washes in the washing machine beautifully and gets better with age…
Sometimes its too lofty for small projects. (Vase quilts, etc.)
Wool batting can be split into layers. Start at a corner and slowly pull the layers apart.
The Half Layer can be used on it’s own…I often use it this way…
Or layered with another batting, perhaps silk to create a “gourmet batting”.
I’ve been experimenting with this lately and will let you know…
What about YOU? Have you tried splitting batting or combining batting?
What’s YOUR favorite combination?
We’d love to hear!
