Ah, the kinda test I like to read. Some numbers, especially relative to each other. They may beg off being a full scientific shoot off, but it was pretty darn good to me. Great job. You guys stand up and take a bow.

Thank YOU!

Ron

Excellent report with some real relative measurement data. Seems to me that velvet, with it's deeper texture would be the natural winner. Nice to know the best material is right down the street at your local JoAnn's or Handcock Fabrics.

Many thanks to all who contributed to this test. It's timely for a lot of us. And I agree that it's very nice to know of such good, low cost, easy to obtain fabric solutions to this problem.

Thanks,
Mike Swaim

Good work. I have been debating what to do and maybe I'll go with felt.

Thanks

I wonder if the felt or velvet has a problem shedding? I wouldn't expect the Prostar paper to shed, but it could also. The Fidelio seems to be the best and cheapest. don't bother going to their website...they don't have any of this stuff listed (that I could find).
