Suitable Fabrics for my rabbits bed?

Please cany anybody help me, i have a house rabbit and she recently had a fabric blockage (carpet we think) . As we amost lost her its left me terrified of all fabrics, this leavse me
problem with her bed. I wondered what are the best suitable fabrics i can get for a bed for her that isnt dangerous if she chews it. I have been to pets at home and all over net but cant see anything that details a special fabric that is safe for rabbits.
Thanks Lu & Jessica Bully Rabbit (she headbuts my cats lol...) x

My littlebunny boy, gets hay for his bed. I have never considered letting him have fabric. Because, of the chewing. With hay he can eat his bed and it won't hurt him. He also likes to burrow underneath it and rearrange it. And I can always give him a new supply. Of course the downside is that my vacuum cleaner really doesn't like hay and Rainbow kitty is always trying to steal his hay. I think your bunny would be just as happy with some nice soft hay, besides if he feels lazy he doesn't even have to walk to his food bowl for food. He can just lie there and eat his bed.

i agree that hay is the best and funnest bed for a bunny if it has chewing problems. i have fleece blankies in both my bunner pens and they love to dig underneath them and make caves and they really dont shew on the fabric.. i guess it depends on the bunny.. thats sooooo scary about the blockage though!!im glad she's ok

I have fleece blankies and hay for Smudges bed.
But then again, Smudge has never tried to eat any fabric... hes fine with carpetting in his cage too.
Hay is probably the safesy for buns that chew. Shredded paper is nice too ^^

Oxbow makes little houses and bed looking things out of woven timothy hay that would be safe. Also, you could get a little rabbit house made out of rabbit safe wood.

I give Barnaby fleece blankets and dog beds, but he doesn't chew on fabric.
