as alot of you know the antron fleece is a pretty shiny material and the fibers seems to be very glossy. This puppet http://www.scarecroe.com/files/workshop/band2.jpg is quite obviously made of antron fleece. But what about this? http://www.scarecroe.com/files/workshop/band6.jpg
His eyelids and nose is definately made of antron, but his skin is totaly different and looks more like the regular fleece you get in fabric stores.
Kermit for instance normally seems to be made of the non-shiny one, but in some pictures he is shiny again.
And all Rick Lyons puppets, like the avenue q ones, are also non-shiny, yet he describes it as "premium nylon fleece"
Any ideas what this might be?

Sorry if I'm going off topic but those puppets are so nice, Are they from the Jim henson workshop or sesame street workshop or something, they look so good I think they have to be.

i think that the different may cause from diffrent dying materials.

yeah, I also thought of that, but I still reckon it has a different texture aswell. Does anyone know if you get dye that removes shine?

there could be another reasonable explaination; lighting!

flash could cause that shine at the fibers, at automatic cameras the flash is not always on (fitting the room lighting) so at those cases the fleece is not shining.


could be?

i am not so sure. for example, its not so obvious if the purple puppe is shiny in that photo. each fabric\color reflect light diffrently.

but this is too stupid explaination.

i believe they all made from antron which been treated diffrently in each puppet. could be dying.

I think that's from the Muppet Workshop and they have SS Muppets in the background, but also have the Muppets you see here, used in "It's A Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie."
