Default Insul-brite vs Insul-fleece

I think I spelled that right. I went looking for the insul-brite to use in making pot holders and could not find it but what I did find was insul-fleece. Are they the same?
I hear people talk about how stiff the insul-brite is but this insul-fleece is sort of flimsy. SO I'm confused as what I really need.

Fleece is polyester, which will melt if you put something hot on it, so they are not the same.

Thanks for those links, Seasaw. Now I know why my insul-brite potholders don't provide enough protection. Who knew you were supposed to use another layer of cotton batting with that?

you can use three layers of warm and natural . insul-brite should be used with one layer of warm and natural
