but like be sure to add an extra layer or 2 of matt tho. it duznt soak up as much resin as fleece or something like that.

Don't use lycra/spandex. It stretches really nice but doesn't soak up resin worth a chit. I had to do a lot of extra work because of the stuff.

As far as I know, yes. That is what the Glass Man uses, a polyester fleece.
