It is supplied on rolls of varying thickness from 2 – 8 oz.. The thickness used really depends on where it is going to be used. This can be known as batting or compressed fleece in some parts of the world. It can also be made from wool and cotton. These can give the same feel of a thick blanket but work just the same. Some versions of this fabric are made from silk and would be used by specialists.
Uses of Wadding
Soft furnishings use this to soften areas such as the back or arm of an armchair. In the bedroom it can be used on a padded headboard. In the dining room it can be used to make the seat a little softer and in turn more comfortable. Cushions use this as an inner pad and this would only be for scatter cushions. This is supplied in bonded fabric form and a cushion pad can be made from this and then filled with loose polyester. Although this would make the pad quite delicate as it will be prone to damage if removed too many times. It is probably advisable to then put this into a stronger material inner cover such as cotton. A cushion that is used for sitting on would need a much firmer insert such as a foam block. Quilts use this for added warmth. A length is placed between two pieces ( the front and back sections) of material to provide thickness which in turn reflects the body heat. Cushion covers – can have a quilted front and this quilted effect gives a totally different look and feel, with the notion that some parts of the cover is leaping in front of the others, almost a 3D effect. The cushioning would be placed between the front and back sections as for the quilt or quillow. Little pieces can be use to give fill a sewn section to make a relief effect and have these small sections of sewing stand out. Bolsters can be filled with this type of cushion pad as it can be rolled up and then placed in a stronger inner cover. Apart from using this as a cushion filling it is good to be used to simulate snow landscape if doing a window dressing at Christmas or under the tree. Small pieces can be used to fill Christmas tree decorations.
Bonded Polyester Fibre (also known as Dacron, wadding, batting etc) is generally glued to the foam cushion to give it a softer and rounder look. It makes the cushion cover look much fuller and plump but does not offer any strucural integrity to the cushion. It is commonly used on three sides as what’s referred to as a C-Wrap in reversable sofa cushions; top, bottom and front edge. It will keep the fabric from wearing out before its time so it is also used anywhere the fabric gets used, inside arms, inside back and seat cushions. Having the foam cushion wrapped in fibre also makes it much easier to slide in and out of the cover when cleaning. This 200gsm grade is the most popular choice for general upholstery applications. Measuring at approximately 20-30mm in thickness but will easily compress down to fit into cover. Loft can vary slightly from batch to batch but will always be the same density and weight.
