Pillow Ticking was originally designed to be used to manufacture pillow covers. An exceptionally, tightly woven, 100% cotton fabric was necessary to keep feather quills from poking through the fabric. The U.S. Government created a set of specifications that had to be adhered to by vendors who manufactured this material for the military.
These T/C® Pillow Ticking Round Ball Patches match those military specifications. Engineers learned long ago that the same properties that existed in pillow ticking were conducive to making first-rate round ball patches. Undeniably one of the finest, most durable round ball patches made today. Get your hands on some today.
