Question : Can I wash a project stuffed with Poly-fil® Premium 100% Polyester Fiberfill, Nature-Fil™ Fiberfill or PLA Corn Fiberfill?
Answer : We recommend spot cleaning your project to avoid shifting or bunching of the fiberfill. If necessary, a project stuffed with 100% polyester fiberfill can be washed although the fiberfill may shift. If this occurs, you can knead the outside of the project with your fingertips once it is completely dry to help redistribute the fiberfill.
Question : Can Poly-Pellets be heated in the microwave?
Answer : Poly-Pellets do not hold heat so we do not recommend warming them in the microwave.
Question : Can Poly-Pellets be used as aroma beads?
Answer : Poly-Pellets will not hold fragrance and cannot be used as aroma beads.
Question : Are Poly-fil® Micro Beads and Poly-fil® Bean Bag Filler hypoallergenic?

Question : How do I know which fiberfill to choose for my project?
Answer : With so many options available it may be difficult to decide which fiberfill is best for your project. By considering these points, you can narrow down your filling options and select the best fiber: 1. The fiber material itself – natural vs. synthetic 2. End use of the item (decorative/display item, well loved toy that will be washed) 3. How if will feel (hard vs. soft)
