Is 100% Polyester Safe? Empty Is 100% Polyester Safe?

I'm pretty sure I remember that fleece is made from polyester, so I'm reasonably sure 100% polyester would be safe for hammocks and the like, but I thought I would post on here anyways to see if anyone had a more concrete answer.

Fleece is made from polyester and is perfectly safe for mice.
The important thing is that it doesn't fray (like cotton) and have long strands that mice could choke on or get tangled in.
But polyester can be made into a variety of fabrics, so make sure its fleece you get (rather than anything woven which frays soooooo much!)

Stick with fleece. You are correct that fleece is made out of polyester but not all polyester fabrics are suitable for mice. Many of them are very stringy and can get tangled around toes and snagged on fingernails.
