I'm making some potholders for Christmas gifts and they require Fusible Thermal. I have some Fusible Fleece so was wondering if they're the same thing? Thanks! :-)

No, when the word "thermal" is used I believe it meets the California guidelines for being less flammable.

The insulbrite is used for potholders. Has an aluminum type layer inside.

Then I need to ask this question since the first one has been answered. Can I use the fusible flannel to line the potholders? I think I'll double it so will it work? I don't want to give someone a gift and then them end up getting burned when taking a hot pan out of the oven or off the stove.

fusable fleece is polyester- not a great choice for hot pads- since it can melt- the thermal batting is made to protect from the heat- fusable fleece is used more for tote bags/purses- clothing items-
