Cotton Upholstery Batting

Cotton upholstery batting is used in conjunction with upholstery foam to round out edges and corners, provide a little extra fullness, and prevent slippage. This batting shouldn’t be used on its own as it won’t offer a lot of support. Upholstery batting is commonly used for upholstering chair cushions and couches.

The following images are using polyester batting and padding, but this cotton batting can be attached in the same way.

Our cotton upholstery batting comes in 27″ wide rolls that are approximately 12 yards long and weigh about 13 pounds. One layer is about 2 inches thick after unrolling, but you can use multiple layers to achieve the thickness you’re looking for. This is a chemical free product that is easy to cut.

If you’re upholstering a cushion with a removable cover, like this box cushion, you may want to use spray adhesive to attach the padding to the upholstery foam.

Keep in mind that this batting is meant to be used for upholstery. This is not a good product for quilts or comforters. Our Quilter’s Dream and Mountain Mist batting would work better for these projects.
