Default Natural/Recycled Toy Stuffing

Can any of you help me?

I'm looking for an alternative to polyester stuffing for toys etc. I'm looking for something that's either from a natural (preferably organic) source or else recycled - I've heard you can get a really nice soft one that's made from recycled plastic but don't know where to even begin looking.

I've done some web searching, including eBay, and found things like wool (both regular and lamb's) based waddings but since this would be for things largely for my kids (son nearly 3 yrs and daughter 6 1/2 months), I'm wondering if I should worry about the potential for allergy issues, either in them (my son already has hayfever) or any friends.

*sigh* I'm sure my parents never had to worry about this kind of thing when I was little lol.

Does anyone know where I can get this kind of wadding/stuffing, and (if possible) reasonably priced?
