    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

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    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.
    Happy quilting everybody!

    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.
