Ha ha - this can easily be ignored. It is stuck in my head, so maybe I can forget about it after I write it down.

I once knew a woman who used wool military blankets for her quilt batting. She said to just not wash your quilt in hot water. She claimed her quilts were very warm and not bulky. I guess she got them from "War Surplus" stores.

There. I said it.

These have to be dry cleaned----wool blankets may survive a cold water wash but they shrink.
I think that years ago---ladies used everything the could as batting---not as many options and not as many quilts----some of those things are heavy---I bought one at a yard sale for 5.00 and it is so heavy---dont need but it at nite.

We have more options now--and we think outside of the quilting box.
