Lynn sent us a good question: I am recovering the seats of 4 dining room chairs (40+ years old). I'm not sure yet about the condition of the padding under the current upholstery. If necessary, where can I find an alternative batting/padding/cushioning material to the toxic chair pads that I found in a big fabric/crafts store?

Are there any greener/recycled/organic options that aren't super-expensive? I thought of felting some old sweaters and using those...

Please share your suggestions and ideas with Lynn in the comments...thanks!
