    Insul-Fleece?????

    Wondering if anyone has worked with this material "insul-fleece" by Pellon...I know that Olddog posted on "Fabrics" thought i would "bump" in here
    I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.

    Looks like just me ricecg. My use was just as an insert between the layers of a PLUQ so there was no sewing involved. Got me down to 32 deg comfortably and I plan to use a piece if necessary in my new UQ. Anything else I can do to help with just holler.

    32? holy cow! Best I've been able to do with a PLUQ is 40's with a layer of IX...

    I've seen "fusible fleece" from pellon. Is this the same stuff?

    I picked up a yard of this yesterday from hancocks, looks like their version of Insul-brite. Haven't had a chance to use yet, was thinking of adding it to my fleece UQ to see how far I could go.

    I've got some at home, but I haven't tried it out yet. I hope to finish the underquilt this coming weekend.

    Where did you get it from? I might want to try this one with mine.

    John ,I did have on polypro long underware with a fleece footed top blanket. Was that cheating?
    It is basically a perforated mylar sheet with a fleece coatinghttp://www.createforless.com/Pellon+...pid180243.aspx

    I got mine at Hancock's and I believe our new fabric dept at WW carries it.

    Thank you! I'll check over at the Wallyworld in town that carries fabric.

    Ah, so it's like insul-brite, but if it's fleece, it'll drape better, and be softer. I'll definitely need to find some and check it out!

    Joann's has it online, I'll check my local store. Insul-Brite is $6.99/yd locally.. Looks like this will be about the same price. Walmart has it too...


    Thanks!
