Fleece liner vs bedding

I'm a new chin owner and I absolutely love her, I did months of research before I got her.
I have been reading on here that some of you use these homemade fleece liners?
What are your thoughts on these? and maybe how to make them?

Thank you

I would never use fleece as bedding.
Too many of them chew or nibble on it.

I tried the fleece liners and they did not work well for me. It seemed the chinchilla room smelled horrid by the morning after I cleaned. But I also have a lot of chinchillas. I have many many friends who use them with their pets and they swear by them.

I know folks who use fleece liners and they like them. You have to wash them often. No problem with the chins chewing fleece.

Thanks for all your input it is greatly appreciated
I only have one chinchilla now but I'm considering getting her a cage mate, I live way up in northern NY and its very hard to find chinchilla rescue places and they are really expensive in pet stores

I made my chins fleece liners for their ferret nation cage and I love them. I have had no problem with them chewing on them, and fleece is also threadless so they cannot pull out threads and choke on them. They are much easier to maintain. I shake them off in my garbage once a week and throw them in the washing machine and it's done. I only have two chinchillas, and I do not notice a difference in the smell.

Also, I would suggest making two sets of them. While one is washing, you can put in the other set.

I made them using two layers of fleece, sewn together like a pillowcase with the seams inside and also attached quilting material on the inside for absorption. Then I sewed the last side shut. I think there is an old post that shows step by step how to make them. That's where I got my idea. I will try to find it and post the link for you.

I could not find the link, to the thread on this site, but if you google chinchilla fleece liner, you should find step by step instructions with pictures.
