Wadding Fabric – Thick Dacron For Quilting

If you need wadding for quilting, look no further than our exceptional polyester wadding fabric. We opted for the synthetic fabric blend instead of natural fibres because it gives the wadding fabric better properties when used as quilt batting.

Natural fabrics are known to wear down easily as batting while polyester Dacron batting stays tightly compact for many years. It’s fully machine washable too, meaning you get excellent value for money on batting for your sewing projects.

Quilt Wadding, Upholstery batting & More

Most customers use our wadding fabric for quilting projects but it serves many other uses. The varying degrees of thickness mean it’s a great upholstery dacron option. If you’re searching for cushion dacron or for sofas, this is a wonderful choice.

You may also use our wadding for sewing if you’re working on projects that require some additional stuffing and structure. It’s a fine choice when sewing stuffed toys as gifts for children – or if you’re starting a business selling stuffed creations online.

Wadding Fabric In Any Thickness You Need

Whether you want quilt dacron or polyester batting for different types of sewing projects, you can pick out the perfect product on our site. Not only do we stock different lengths – but we also have four weights to choose from, giving your polyester dacron different degrees of thickness:

  • 2 Oz
  • 4 Oz
  • 6 Oz
  • 8 Oz

The heavier you go, the thicker your fabric will be – if you need quilting wadding for winter quilts, the heaviest weight is best to trap in more heat. Opt for lighter and thinner batting if your projects don’t need to be extra thick and thermally absorbent.

Get high-quality wadding fabric from us today or buy a sample to test different thicknesses before returning and purchasing a metre or more!

I recently bought a fat quarter bundle of William Morris fabric for an American friend who’s a quilter. I received a beautifully presented pack which will leave me little to do but hand it to her! Speedy, free delivery and an easily navigable website only added to my experience. I have my eye on some very competitively priced linen rich fabric for some summer dresses so my adventure with Discount Fabrics is set to continue! A very pleasant experience in every way.
