FoamOrder offers three types of batting for do-it-yourselfers to work with. We offer standard polyester (Dacron) batting, organic cotton batting, and organic wool batting. Batting is common in upholstery and quiltmaking, and provides fill or rounding-out of cushions or blankets. In cushions, polyester batting is highly recommended to give them that fuller, more luxurious look, and to remove wrinkles from fabric covers. Batting also helps cushions to slide into slipcovers more easily by removing the friction from the foam.
Dacron wrapping is standard on any of our cushions and very much recommended. Dacron rounds out edges and fills in the fabric cover for a more aesthetic look. It also helps foam to slide into a fabric cover.
Standard cushions are wrapped using a “book wrap” technique. It is called this because the dacron covers the foam in the same way a dust jacket covers a hardbound book. Only three sides of a cushion are covered (see picture). You will need a can of glue to attach the dacron.
We sell regular dacron wrap, which is 1.25-ounce weight and low-melt, by the whole yard (1 yard = 91 cm), in 30" (76 cm) or 66" (168 cm) widths. We also sell thin dacron (0.5-ounce weight), which is excellent for cushions 2" (5 cm) or thinner, wall upholstery, and more. Contact us for volume discounts.
