Does anyone know of a non-conducting fabric?

Does anyone know of a non-conducting fabric?

(OP)
Hi everyone,

Does anyone know if there is such a thing as a fabric that is non-conductive and is at the same time heat resistant?

RE: Does anyone know of a non-conducting fabric?

Non-conductive for what parameter? Heat? Electricity?

Heat resistant to what temperature?

It's ok to soar like an eagle, but weasels don't get sucked into jet engines.

RE: Does anyone know of a non-conducting fabric?

Glass fiber fabric, Nevlar fabric, Nomex fabric (used in firefighters clothes). The latter two are expensive. If you don't need very high temperature stability then normal nylons, polyesters and even cotton could be suitable.
