Hobbs Quilt Batting WLBY-108 100% Wool 108" x 25 yards, includes shipping via UPS. I you wish to pick up from the Norco, CA warehouse, please call for pricing.
Why do you want to use wool batting for quilting:
1) warm in winter, cool in summer (natural fibers adjust to the body temperature).
2) has a nice loft - quilts down where you quilt and puffs up where you don't.
3) is a lightweight batting (if it is too light for your weight preference - try cotton/wool blend batting (it has the properties of cotton and wool and is a slightly firmer and has more weight)).
4) wool has no fold memory so it is a great for quilts that will be packed away for seasonal use or if you are doing a competition quilt and don't want those pesky fold lines in your batting.

I have been using this batting for all of my quilts for a few years now. It is light and warm, washes beautifully and does not shrink.
This is of a consistent thickness, unlike the batting I had been buying. I have not used it yet, but it sure looks better, so I am sure it will quilt and wash well. And comparing price square inch to square inch, it was cheaper than my JoAnn's previous purchases.
Wool is much lighter, has a better drape and shows off the quilting better. As a longarmer I prefer it It's easier on my needles and there is no "wrong side". I love it.
