This stuff was used for stuffing in several seat cushions I'm replacing. What is it?

It looks like the silk from inside a silk pod plant.

It is natural, not synthetic. Very silky smooth. IT IS EXTREMELY FLAMIABLE. I put some in my sink and lit it. Poof! It went up in flames very fast.

Thanks,

Gene

Looks like ordinary Kapok to me too. But I never realized that it was so flammable.

It's wonderful for shooting through a Bazooka stuffer.
