Needle punched- The process of punching hundreds of tiny barbed needles through the fibers which causes the fibers to interlock similar to needle felting. Needle punched wool or poly tends to migrate. But will not bunch or shift like plain carded products. Needle punched products can also be thermal or resin bonded.

Glazine Finish-Typically the batting is passed through a mechanical process that applies heat to the surface of the web. The surface is “sealed” or “glazed”. This helps minimize the potential for bearding, bunching and shifting and results in good stability. Not to be confused with Stearns and Foster’s (Mountain Mist) Glazene® finish which is a water soluble starch based product that is applied to the surfaceof their cotton batting and washes away when laundered.

Well I have nearly 50 samples of different battings made into quilted samples I sure hope this will be something that the quilting world wants to see and I have not just made myself a lifetime supply of potholders. Hoping to get the Warm samples this week Still have not heard from Mountain Mist.
