Amigurumi Friday! -stuffing

Welcome to this Friday's segment of "Amigurumi Friday"

Today we will be discussing the fluffy white stuff that brings our amigurumi to life- stuffing!

Some people like to add pellets to the bottoms of limbs and torso's of their amigurumi to give it a weight, but I prefer the simple, uncomplicated poly-fil fiber. It's non-allergenic, easy to use, and somehow I keep managing to get practically new bags given to me by friends and family! A lot of them buy a huge bag like this one (in the pic) for a small project and then don't know what to do with an entire bag of the stuff. So to me it goes, and I welcome free supplies! 

If you're not as lucky as me, you can actually purchase a bag of this fluffy fun at your local walmart next to the pillows or local craft supply store. If I remember correctly, I think a bag of this size is about 12$. 
Do you use any other product other than polyfiber fill for your amigurumi?
