Default Pellon Insul-Fleece

has anyone used this in pot holders? I need to know which side goes toward the heat. I plan to make those long pot holders you slip your hands into. the sides look almost the same to me as with insul-bright. i hate having to figure this out and they do not tell me much in the directions. Pellon insul-fleece.

this is from pellon http://www.pellonprojects.com/produc...-insul-fleece/
it would be my guess that if it is not specified, it does not matter which way is up

I was once told by a shop owner to put the 'silver threads' next to the heat to insulate it from the hands. Or put the table runner top side , with; the 'silver threads' on the top of the table runner to prevent any table damage due ot the heat of the bowls or pans. So that is what I did, never had anyone complain about it.

Is insul-fleece the same product as insul-bright?

I have used insul-bright in pot holders, and have not noticed any difference in which side goes where.

I've used it in potholders. Two layers with the shiny, silver side to the outside. I made some for gifts and kept a few. I like them, but they are crinkly-sounding.

there is a difference to me. I have set my iron on one side with fabric over it and felt under it. now, with a casserole carrier, you would want the heat to stay "inside" with the dish. I will test it when i get ready to make the pot holder.
love your hair in your avatar pic!!!

It does not matter which side goes toward the heat.

Insul-fleece and Insul-brute are not the same product
