I'm planning on making a charmander kigurumi, only problem is generally kigurumi are made with polar fleece, which is extremely flammable. I spin fire, and was planning on wearing this while doing so, and need a fabric that's less flammable but still has a similar weight/thickness for it to fall the right way. Cotton is preferred, with a very low poly/spandex percentage (if any at all). Anyone have any suggestions?

After a quick google search to make sure I was remembering correctly, it seems wool is pretty resistant to burning. You can find wool felt in different thicknesses so you might be able to find one that will lay similarly to polar fleece, though it will probably get expensive to buy as much as you need. Flannel (cotton) might work though is much thinner (double layer maybe, or line with a different fabric?), especially if you find one that is meant to be used for kids pajamas since those should be flame retardant.
