I'm working on a lizard and I want to make him into a heating pad type stuffie.  I'm wondering if felt is microwavable or should I just go with plain fabric?

Hm, I'm not sure. Do you have some felt scraps that you could pop into the microwave to see what they do at different lengths of time? Maybe do one each for 15s, 30s, 1min, 5min, etc, to see what sort of things happen to it & then again the a couple days to see how it does over time? That's what I would do to figure out if felt would be suitable, but I can't think of any reason it wouldn't be microwaveable, except maybe possibly a bit of melting if it's synthetic but I don't think a microwave could get it up to temperature for that. I'm also not a microwave expert. lol

i would think that real wool felt would be microwavable, since i put wool in the microwave when i dye it...

I've never microwaved felt before.  I would go w/a non-flammable fabric if you are making a stuffie that is going into the microwave to be heated.  I would keep wash ability in mind too.
