I have a new welding blanket that sheds fibers badly. This makes a mess.

Any recommendations for a welding blanket that will not shed?

Would a Carbon Fiber Felt Welding Blanket have the same problems of fibers sheding?

I don't use Blankets myself, I remove any and all material that would be heat effected or may be flammable. That's not an option for production shops or a quick repair.
Fiberglass blankets SUCK!

BUT Silica cloth, Carbon Fiber or Silicone coated blankets are good options.
