    What is that material that one uses that is silver used in making potholders and such....you know like what you find on ironing board covers.

    For the life of me I can't remember what it is called.

    well there is a silver quilted one, JoAnn's should have it.
    then out came insul-bright which is white on both sides with a bit of silver stuff in the center. they both work.

    I have bought that silver cloth but don't know what it is called. I don't think it's insubrite as that's a special type of batting for hot stuff.

    The solid silver fabric that deflects heat is called Heat Resistant fabric. Therma-Flec is the most common brand. I like the solid much better then Insulbrite.

    Well, I call it "Ironing board cover" fabric. I have it on my large 60x80 table for ironing my quilt tops. Insulbrite is the stuff that goes inside for potholders, etc. Actually, the silver stuff is usually called "Teflon Ironing Board cover fabric."
