    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?
