I think I'll plan on tearing up some old pillows, seeing if I can WASH it in lingerie bags, and use that... it's hard when you want to be GREEN, but yet need your products to be from legit supplies...

I am new to this, just started making my plarn. So realized I was getting leftovers of plastic . I put it in a fleece block I am sewing, and it worked nicely. Not sure how it would work on a smooth faced doll. Also cut up nylons work .

buy old pillows/stuffed things from thrift stores and garage sales for really cheap and de-stuff them.  Then, at least I am not buying stuffing new in a package.  I wash the whole pillow in the washing machine first to make sure it gets clean.

Does that get rid of dust mites and other nasties?

I have used the EcoCraft batting, they have two different styles of it. I liked it quite a bit. I also found out that Fairfield (the people that make poly-fil) have a bamboo version of batting and poly-fil - http://www.poly-fil.com/fiberfill.asp. I haven't been able to find it yet though.

Joanne's sometimes has the bamboo batting.  It's 50% bamboo, 50% organic cotton.  I bought a queen-size batt a few weeks ago when they were having a 1/2 price sale.

It looks like you can call their service # and they'll tell you where to get their stuff, would be helpful to find out where to get that bamboo poly!

You could always put any fabric that you want to use for stuffing into the freezer for a day or so - if it's at a low enough temperature (ours is at -18c) then it should kill any nasties that may be lurking. The other option is to boil wash, but obviously not all fabrics will stand for that (and it uses more energy - it's always difficult to balance your actions when you're trying to be green!)
