    I went to my local craft store today the biggest one in Ottawa is Michael's a chain store I think.

    Farfield was the brand they sold. It can in 20 oz bags for stuffing things like pillows. It also came in sheets for beds etc, I think. I have seen people use the sheets for lining the inside of their sonotube, which is what I want to do. However the sheet type bags only give the size of the sheet in inches, so I don't know how much to put in the tube. The Adire alignment Tempest calls for 64oz.

    Any ideas on how to do some type of conversion or something along those lines?

    Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    It's easier to get the pillow stuffing weight than guess on the poly-batting sheets' weight.

    The poly batting sheets are really used to line the inside walls, while the polyfill stuffing is used to stuff the enclosure (be sure to fluff it up).
