    Where can I find pima cotton yardage???

    hello everyone,
    My son has a tactile sensitivity. I want to make him a quilt, but he wants to have it super soft on the top (I can use flannel for the backing). First question: is pima cotton the softest fabric I can quilt with (and least expensive of the softest), and, second and most important, where can I find it??? I have one quilt that is made with kona cotton and he would like it to be a bit softer than that.
    Thanks!!

        Why not use flannel for both sides?

          instead of backing with flannel why not do the front in flannel and back with minky. There is nothing so snuggable as minky.

            Cotton lawns are very soft, but you will probably pay more per yard.

              Thanks all for your responses. I don't want to use flannel or minky because they don't offer the variety of prints available. Maybe I'll find the same is true for pima? I haven't done enough research yet.

                Fashion Fabric Club often has a lot of garment type fabrics for very reasonable prices.

                https://www.fashionfabricsclub.com/

                When I did a lot of garment sewing, I could always find nice things here and their sales are awesome. I found some great sateens here last year for half of what I would have had to pay for them in stores.

                  Can I quilt with flannel??? I never thought of that before a couple of responses above. I am wanting to make the Labyrinth quilt - one of the piece sizes used often is pretty skinny...

                    You can always purchase sheets. Purchase a print and a solid. And sew em up and make a quilt top.
                    Blogging ahead.....research in quilting and sewing with a dab of cooking/recipes too.

                      Peppered Cotton is a shot cotton, it's very soft and the colors are out of this world. Solids only, since it's a woven.

                        Is "Peppered Cotton" a brand name, or type of cotton like pima or egyptian?

                            Shot cotton is the from the collection of Kaffe Fassett. I'm planning on ordering some soon.

                            Peppered cotton is a type of fabric. Good description here.
