    Default Ruined my quilt help

    I had read an article about all the different types of batting.

    One of which was wool. I decided to try it since I was going to make some quilts for family that live in the north east. It said that that is soft, washable, and preshrunk.

    Well the roll I bought sure the hell wasn't. I finished my quilt put in the wash (cold water) and when I took it out of the wash it was all weird, so I figured well maybe it will be ok once dried (low setting), NOT.

    It is all out of shape and every block is majorly puckered and to make things worse it is bleeding fuzz threw the stitches.

    I am thinking of giving away to a thrift store the remaining roll unless you can tell me how or if I can possibly use the rest without problems.

    Thanks

    Pam, I am very sorry for the problems you got. I would call the shop you bought the roll or the producer, tell the problem and ask them for a solution. Sorry I have no better idea.

    Oh what a mess. Call the batting people, take the batting back to the store along with your quilt!

    That's terrible. I agree to take your quilt and batting back to the store. Take pictures of it too to send to the manufacture.

    Yes, PLEASE share the brand. I just finished my first wool batted quilt. The package said preshrunk. I'm nervous now to gift it!

    Oh no! After all your hard work, and you followed all the washing instructions and everything! I have a roll of Hobbs washable wool waiting to go into my next quilt. I hope this isn't the brand you used. Now you got me nervous too. Please!!! What brand did you have trouble with?

    I'm so sorry you had this problem. Please share what brand you purchased. I have used Quilters Dream Wool It's a little more expensive, but does not shrink when washed and dried on cool, nor does it beard. I know that doesn't help you much but I'm curious as to the brand you used.

    I purchased it from walmart and this is what I purchased: Pellon Z 100 Percent Wool Batting with Scrim, Needle Punched, 90" x 6 yd Roll.
    Did I purchase the wrong wool?

    It didn't come with any instructions that is why I washed in cold water to be safe. I keep thinking maybe I did something wrong being the first time using wool. But even if it didn't shrink up like an old man it produce all that fuzz through the stitches and it would still have been ruined.

    Do you prewash your wool? How do you keep it from producing all the fuzz?
    Have a blessed day
