Batting / Dacron

Dacron is a polyester batting fabric. You should add it to any foam surface over the foam. It’s used in upholstery and quilting.

The polyester wrapping comes in rolls. You can buy our dacron in Cape Town either at one of our fabric shops in Tokai or Fish Hoek or online.

Benefits of Using Dacron or Batting Fabric?

Dacron reduces the friction foam has with the fabric which reduces wear and tear.

Batting fills in any slackness in your upholstery so that it keeps its shape. Because of this, there will not be any lumps on the finished product.

Dacron fabric wrapping evens out imperfections in the inner fill material. This prevents the item from losing shape and it will bounce back to shape.

Dacron or batting fabric is mould and mildew resistant and repels parasites. This makes it an ideal fabric to use anywhere in the house.
