Polyester wadding - 4oz (135g) - 54" wide
This top quality premium UK made polyester wadding is ideal for filling your homemade items but is also ideal for adding extra thickness to existing items such as cushions and pillows.
4oz wadding is a medium loft filling which provides a less voluminous and bulky padding. It's ideal for thinner quilts and lightweight blankets, along with home craft projects that require a lighter and thinner profile. We also have 8oz polyester wadding available which is a high-range density.
Made from: 100% polyester
Width: 135cm / 54"

- The fibres are strong and sustainable making it ideal for items that need to be washed a lot
- Minimal shrinkage, no need to pre-wash
- Can be washed and dry cleaned
- Fire Retardant Safety Certified – British Standard BS5852
- 4oz (135gsm) is approx 12 - 16mm in thickness.
Ordering: This fabric is priced by the 1/2 metre (1 unit). Multiple units will be sent as a continuous piece.
For example if you'd like 1.5 metres this is 3 units (3 x 1/2 metre) so enter '3' into the Quantity box and Add To Basket. This will be cut as one continuous piece measuring 1.5m long x the width of the wadding.
If you need help calculating how much fabric you need please use the chart we have provided on our Shopping Guide page, you will also find a diagram explaining what a fat quarter is, as we know it can be confusing!
If you’d like your wadding to be cut to different lengths, please add a note with order at checkout.
Care instructions: Pre-wash is optional, no shrinkage on first wash. Can be washed at 40 degrees and also dry cleaned.
Please be aware that when the wadding is cut and placed into the mailing bag it tends to gather. We advise that you open your parcel as soon as you receive it and allow 24 hours for the wadding to return to it's original volume.

Fabric Size Guide
As the image shows, we cut our fabrics by the Fat Quarter, Half Metre, 3/4 Metre and Full Metre.
Fat Quarter = 55cm wide x 50cm long (21" x 19")
Half Metre = 110cm wide x 50cm long (43" x 19")
3/4 Metre = 110cm wide x 75cm long (43" x 29")
Full Metre = 110cm wide x 100cm long (43" x 39")
Please note that this is a rough guide as the fabrics can vary slightly in width.
Once you have found a fabric you like, you'll see on the page there is a box called 'Quantity'. You can either type directly into this box, or use the up and down arrows as appropriate.
You can decide how much you would like to buy using the Quantity box. If you only want 1 Fat Quarter leave the Quantity box with ‘1’. If you would like Half Metre type '2' into the box (or use the Up Arrow to increase the quantity). If you would like 3/4 Metre type '3' into the box, and so on.
You can refer to our chart for larger quantities.
