I need to make some sleeves that I can slip over bunnies' water bottles to insulate them in cold weather, like this:

What kind of fabric should I be looking for? Thanks for your time!

Insul Brite is the correct thing to use. You use it like batting between the lining & the main fabric. I use it for making water bottle holders & I basically quilt the lining to the insul brite then sew it as one piece. It is found w/the interfacings at fabric stores.
