Default Wool Batting for microwave bowls

I have a lot of wool batting and was wondering if it could be used in the microwave bowls? I know that the polyester blend won't work and to use cotton but was wondering about wool. It too is a natural fiber. Any comments?

I don't see why it wouldn't-it is a natural fiber, as you pointed out. I use wool blanketing on my ironing board, and it's fine.

I was wondering if you had tried making these with the wool batting and how it turned out.

Thanks

How would wool batting hold up to machine washing? Those microwave bowls need machine washing pretty often. I have never used wool in the microwave bowls, so I have no idea how it would work in a microwave either. Curious to find out though.

Some wools are washable - sheep get wet - the wool gets wet while it is being processed.
