Insulated Wadding - Sew Simple Super Soft


Sewing bee fabrics haberdashery and ribbons


Insulated wadding can be used both to maintain temperature and to protect things from short exposures to both hot and cold temperatures. It is suitable both for hand or machine quilting, with the recommended quilting distance being under 17cm / 7 inches apart.

Suggested Uses:

Insulated wadding can be used for many sewing projects such as cool bags, lunch boxes, or tea cosies to help keep hot things hot and cold things cold. It can also be used to make insulated table runners or placemats to protect the table from hot dishes, and it is even suitable for making oven gloves, potholders or ironing board covers. Equally, it can be used to protect against cold in projects such as insulated mittens, stadium cushions, or to help maintain the temperature with insulated curtains.

Fabric Specifications:

The insulated wadding width is approximately 57cm / 22.5 inches.

Fabric Composition – This insulated wadding is made by Sew Simple from a combination of mylar heat resistant film and hollow fibre polyester.

Sewing & Usage Tips:

The wadding is most effective when sandwiched between 2 outer fabrics and quilted together in stiching under 17cm / 7 inches apart. We recommend you also keep in mind the suitability of the outer fabric to get the best out of your insulated wadding sewing projects. For example, avoid fabrics with a low melting point for a project such as oven gloves, and be cautious of fabrics and threads with metallic fibres which may melt or conduct heat.
