I am thinking about getting some for my pigs, i have heard they are amazing but wanted some mor input if anybody on here uses them. By the way I am aware that you have to wash them with cold water and dry them on low heat tumble to prevent shrinkage.

Our fleece liners shrunk so we went back to ordinary fleece but if you read through the threads in the hosing section you'll read lots of positives :)

I wash mine at 60 degrees! I have been using fleece for 4 years now - But I do make my own up as I have a sewing machine. Some have shrunk but thats after a few years of use.

Lots of helpful tips / hint and advice in the Housing section - Fleece has it's own section!

guinea dad liners are made larger than the cage so they'd have space for shrinkage. I just tuck the extra behind the c&c grids. Mine is fairly new so it has gone through 2 washes only.

I got one and the pigs love the pocket. It is easier to brush hay off.
On the other hand it is heavier than my other liners and has shrunk quite a bit. I won't be buying another as I don't think they are worth the extra cost.
