How much wool do I need for batting?
Wool generally looses 45-55% of its weight during processing. The product weights are listed in FINISHED weight so double the finished weight to get the approximate raw weight.
You can use the conversion chart below as an example
Approx. Finished Sizes & Weight of Raw Wool:
Cradle (36x45) - 1/2 lb finished need 1 lb raw
Crib (45x54) - 1 lb finished needs 2 lbs raw
Lap (45x72) - 1 1/2 lbs finished needs 3 lbs raw
Bunk (60x90) - 2 1/2 lb finished needs 5 lb raw
Twin (72x90) - 3 lb finished needs 6 lbs raw
Double (81x90) - 3 1/2 lbs finished needs 7 lb raw
Queen (90x90) - 4 lbs finished needs 8 lbs raw
King (108x90) - 5 lbs finished needs 10 lb raw
