How much organic cotton ticking fabric do I need to order for my upholstery project which uses wool batting?
Let’s say you’re purchasing a 54-58” wide cotton ticking fabric, you will need about the same yardage as your outer cover fabric. You may cut the two layers at the same time and treat them as one piece, or build a separate inner cover out of the ticking fabric. If you build a separate inner cover, it is recommended that you make it slightly larger to allow it to fill out the corners of the outer cover.

The craft of (RE)upholstery is, without a doubt, a key solution to the problem of furniture waste (12 million tons of furniture go to landfills each year in the U.S. alone). Please consider supporting the National Upholstery Association in their efforts to expand professional upholstery education. We need more 'boots on the ground' to do this work. Thank you.
