Has anyone used either the wool blend battings or the silk blend battings? I normally use Warm and Natural, but I have been trying to decide on one of these others. While I love the WAN, I want to try something else. I will be using it in a queen sized preprinted whole cloth quilt and hand quilting it. Any advice will be a great help in deciding.

Thanks JoanieB

I havent tried them, I love my cotton. I am interested to hear reviews on them though, especially the wool.
May your bobbin always be full-

Depending on the quilt, I use either flame retardant polyester batting for baby quilts or Warm & Natural cotton batting for general adult quilts. Never tried the wool either.
