Reviving Stuffed Fire-hose Tugs…

Along the lines of my previous post regarding rolled leather tugs, I’ve got some fire-hose tugs that have held up amazingly well for several years – well at least the hose part. The stuffing is pretty much toast and I was thinking about cutting them open, taking them to seamstress and having them re-stuffed and re-sewn. I’m just wondering what to re-stuff them with. The synthetic stuff in them wore out much quicker than the outside and if I’m going to go to the expense of trying to refurbish them, I figure I should stuff them with something more durable and firmer. I think the stuffing having gotten so worn out and so compressed it has led to some chewing issues with the tugs – as all of my dogs (not typically chewers) seem to get chewy on them now that they are all mashed down.

Thanks for any help. Like I said in my previous post (only half joking) with the economy being what it is these days, If I can refurbish a piece of equipment for a reasonable expense compared to repurchasing I’m up for giving it try with how much a lot of these items cost.

Here is where I originally bought the tugs from. The handles and fire-hose part have been nearly indestructible, but the stuffing has been what has worn out.

Thanks for any input!
