Cotton Wadding

Cotton wadding manufactured traditionally by Cowens Ltd since 1901 in a variety of formats for diverse applications where padding, softness and retained shape are required in an economical format.

Cotton fibres are carded into a web before being needle felted which holds the material together while retaining the natural softness and thickness.

Manufactured to suit customer needs, it has a spun bond face top and bottom. Specific sized shapes can be cut from the wadding using a die press or sheet wadding made using a guillotine.

The wadding can be made from bleached fibres for bleached cotton wadding, unbleached fibres for grey cotton wadding, finest cotton combers for super grey wadding, or flame retardent fibres for FR cotton wadding.

Applications as diverse as baby wraps (bleached wadding), shoulder pads and coffin lining (Grey), upholstery (FR) and french polishing (Super) as well as general padding, absorbing and insulating.

Needled Felts – Natural Fibres

Needled pure silk fibre, in a polyester blend, produces a sumptuous soft felt for the ultimate in luxury fillings. A powerful marketing advantage in premium beds and upholstery, the felt is also a supremely comfortable material to lie on, keeping cool in summer but warm in winter.

Similarly Cowens Ltd’s pure needled wool felts are beautifully soft yet keep their shape and loft with a firm spring which does not flatten. Ultra clean wool is double carded to remove all the trash and short fibres, leaving a pale cream felt which has a multitude of applications as filling, lining or padding. Its naturally comfortable characteristics are well known, and at 500 gsm, will enable the wool mark to be used.

With a strength to enable robust furniture manufacturing practices to be employed, and a good thickness which is easy to work with, this premium felt is a pleasure to work with.
