* please note: I've been asked why I don't use Insul-Bright batting as my coffee cozy insulation. Insul bright is manufactured with a "reflective metalized poly film".

The Warm Company Disclaimer:
*At least one layer of cotton batting is recommended with Insul~Bright when used as Oven Mitts or Pot Holders. Insul~Bright is heat-RESISTANT, NOT heat-proof.

NOT FOR USE IN THE MICROWAVE!

METALS ARE NOT MICROWAVABLE - THEY MAY SPARK CAUSING FIRE.

Neither, do I use a cotton batting as it is highly absorbent, has a much higher shrinkage rate, and tends to bunch over time, especially under heat.

Instead I choose 2 layers of simple polyester felt which provide adequate protection against heat from the hottest liquid beverages, maintains its shape and is both microwavable and washable. It does not absorb water but does hold small amounts through adhesion which will evaporate given time and heat. As with any flammable fabric, care should be taken when drying polyester with thermal heat sources such as dryers and irons as it will begin to melt at high enough temperatures. Drying with a microwave is not recommended because a microwave is a loosely closed system. The water will heat up but will not readily evaporate. It is best to dry polyester insulation in an open air environment.
