Hi, I need to know what batting is called that is heat resistant. I want to make potholders for Christmas, but need to be sure I order the correct thing because I don't think I'll be going shopping in the near future.

Thanks! I'll look at the websites. I have been to walmart recently and forgot to look there. Oh well, I put my sewing machine away again for now. I'm trying to get the house cleaned up.

It's probably too late now, but for future reference, it's called Insul-Bright. http://www.warmcompany.com/ibpage.html HTH :-)

Thanks, I'll check out the website. I had someone else recommend insul-bright to me too but didn't give me a url that I could order from.

Adding my comments to the mix here: as long as you use 100% cotton batting you should be okay. Nice and thick of course. Or 100% wool. I have used 100% cotton batting in years past and it worked fine. It's when you use any product with polyester in it to make pot holders, hot pads or oven mitts, that you run the chance of getting burned from the heat as well as the batting melting. Very dangerous. I haven't quilted for a few years now but the item listed by others that has insulation in it sounds wonderful. Must be something new since I let myself go to a quilt shop. ;-) I have my own little quilt shop right here in my studio. As well as a knitting shop, rug hooking shop, spinning shop...you get the picture. Good luck to you!
