Hi everybody, I just did some research about changing mats, and the results were pretty frightening. It turn out that they are loaded with toxic stuff, and the ones that are not are very, very expensive. I have like this millions of fabric stashes lying around here, and I thought about sewing my own mat,
I guess, that it wouldn´t be too difficult, but I am wondering about how I get the mat soft enough. I have a couple of felted sweaters, and some wool filling lying around, do you think I could use that?
I am not too comfortable to use foam - first I don´t really know how toxic that would be, second I´d like to use stuff I already have.
do you think that a combination of felted wool plus the wool filling would be soft enough?
I am planning to cover it with cotton than, and have a towel or something like this above the cotton, for blow-outs. It probably would not be washable with the wool filling, but it could work with the felted wool, wouldn´t it?
What would you use?
Thanks a lot!
