    I was just on Ebay drooling and buying myself "that purple thang" when I saw the following:
    Warm and Safe Batting

    Fire Retardant Batting from The Warm Co.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Environmentally Friendly Feels Silky Soft

    The Warm Company has selected a remarkable patented fiber that is manufactured in a GREEN facility for Warm & Safe. This revolutionary fiber is made from sustainable, quick growing plantation trees (not competing with food supplies). The Warm Company processes the fiber with state of the art needle-punch technology without resins or glues giving Warm & Safe the trademark softness along with all of the attributes quilters expect from Warm Company batting.

    Naturally Fire Retardant for Peace of Mind

    Warm & Safe is inherently and permanently fire retardant. By design, the fiber has a high silica content making the fire retardant properties built in from the start. Warm & Safe will not melt, flow or emit toxic gases when exposed to heat and flame. Because the fire retardant is locked into the fiber, the batting remains non-toxic, non-allergenic, and, well - Warm & Safe!

    I wonder if it would dull needles fast - silica is basically sand. Up home, we has a plant called horsetails that you could use to clean pots and pans with because the silica in it worked like Comet or Ajax- abrasives.

    I've ordered a crib size for an Irish chain that I'm going to try. I'll let you know how it sews up.
