'Cuse me if I am telling something y'all already know but it has helped me. I use acrylic stuffing and plastic pellets in my bears. For years I had used "Polyfil" but encountered someone at a show a couple of years ago and they were using "Mountain Mist". I aked why and they said "because it stays where I put it". I tried it and they were right. Anyway, Walmart stopped carrying the above but have found that "Morning Glory" is made by the same company and seems exactly the same. I find it it much easier to get a firmly, evenly stuffed nose and head with either Mountain Mist and hopefully Morning Glory. As a wonderful artist pointed out years ago, a firmly stuffed nose is SO much easier to embroider.
I just wanted to say that I've just heard that too. I think somewhere on here.
I haven't tried it yet, still trying to use my "other" polyfill. But I did buy some, opened the package and I can really see how the stuff will be better. With my other poly fill from Micheals, I find it has a mind of it's own, and slips like crazy. Plus, I think that Wallmart brand is even cheaper! Can't get any better than that!
I actually tried Polyfil, Mountain Mist and Firmpak (had not tried CR Crafts) and finally decided to at least TRY the one at Walmart. Imagine my surprise when it turned out to be my FAVORITE regardless of price! (and Walmart is just 1 mile down the street from me)
It's funny how we sometimes have different things that work for us
