Can you iron that on a low heat setting to get the wrinkles out...I buy the king size batting bags to use on many projects and the batting gets wrinkled.....

Thanks

julie, it should say on the package if you can iron it, but that'll distort it.  you can fluff it in the dryer on low heat.  depending on the look of the quilt i want, i will sometimes wash the batting and dry it first.    i usually take the batting out of the package a day or so before i want to use it so it has time to relax, that gets rid of most wrinkles       gini

I take the batting out of the bag and spread it over a table or a frame or whatever and let it lay.  The wrinkles will usually fall out fairly easily.

Julie, I lay mine out over a spare bed and the wrinkles seem to relax pretty well.  For really stubborn wrinkles, I have a spray bottle that is filled with 99% water and 1 tiny bit of fabric softener and mist them very lightly.  That does the trick :)
