Pellon batting is either needle punched with a scrim or Thermal Bonded.
Deb -- can you give the pros and cons of 'resin bonded' versus needle punched with a scrim or thermal bonded?

But this begs the question: If cotton batting has a thin layer of polyester scrim, doesn't that cut down on cotton's breathability? Warm and Natural used to say they were 100% cotton, and someone called them on their polyester scrim and now on their label they lowered the percentage of cotton . . .
When using a batting with scrim on the longarm, put the scrim side up so the needle goes through the scrim side first. I don't know why. It's just what I learned here. I think someone told me that Hobbs 80/20 has its scrim in dead center so it doesn't matter which side is up.
The pro's of scrim include easier handling because the scrim keeps it from stretching.
One con would be that some people don't want any polyester in their batting at all.
