Never seen that before but looks good for the price. However, you generally get what you pay for and that material is rated at about 300F less working temperature than Inswool. So, for HTing you'd be OK but for forging it wouldn't hold up as well.

Also, I'd get the 1" wool (or Inswool) rather than the 2". If you're going to have that much wool laying around then sooner or later you'll likely build another forge and 1" is enough in many cases. If you need 2" then use 2 layers. If you do mess up your wool by flux or physical damage having two layers could mean you only have to replace one of them ...
