I use old sheets, clothes and such torn into strips to stuff my soft toys, but since tearing up all the fabric needed takes a lot of time and causes a lot of dust that gets everywhere (especially my nose!), I was wondering if anyone knew of a place that sells shredded fabric?
I know places that take old clothes & etc. and shred it all to bits exist since I saw such a place on some interior decorating show (they used the fluff for flocking or an art piece or some such) ages ago, but didn't think to write down any info on the place then.
I'd also love to hear any ideas you might have for easily & quickly (and non-dustily) tearing up fabric too.

Have you tried ebay?

I actually use cut up, B-grade blankets and pillows, sold in 15 kilo boxes on eBay. The stuffing is way better than what regular craft stuffing is (softer, easier to handle), and because of the huge box, way cheaper as well.

I have tried eBay, but I guess I'm using the wrong search words (wouldn't be the first time I fail at searches either Cheesy) since I've not had much luck finding anything there. May I ask where there you find your stuffing?

My seller is German, so probably no big help. Smiley

But would these help?
