Anyone have a general idea as to how flammable the stuff is?

I mean, when held to an open flame will it burst into flames, or just smoulder and melt?

Your right, that is a weird request!  Shocked  Why don't you set some on fire and find out? LOL  seriously!  But be safe ok?

It will probably just melt and curl onto itself.  That's what happens when you use an iron too hot on it   Grin

Buuuuuuttt... Yeah, to be sure, I'd just take a small piece with a pair of plyers and hold it to candle.  Just make sure to have a bowl of water around you to stick it in....

Of course I would have done it myself, but I don't have any.

...nor have I ever used any.. yet. And I just wanted to know if it would work for what I have in mind before I take the 40 min trek to the nearest fabric store.

Chilan is right, I just tried it for you and that's what it did!

Thanks!

I was going to make an oven mitt with a more decorative fabric (backed with interfacing) on the cuff, so I just wanted to make sure it wouldn't catch on fire too severely. Melting shouldn't be that much of a problem though.

In every pattern (GASP! for an oven mitt?) I've ever used it actually calls for interfacing so you should be safe.
