You will need 2 layers of 1" 8lb. ceramic wool refractory (a high temperature insulating layer made from ceramic fibers) such as  Inswool insulating blanket. It is best to use two layers of 1 inch material rather than one 2” layer.

Measure the circumference of your forge subtracting 1/2 “ from the diameter (half the thickness of your wool) and cut ever so slightly large. This will create a fit that is tight enough to keep the wool rigid in place. Before adding the second layer, rigidized the first layer and burned off the water with the burner.  The color of the dye faded to white as the wool heated up. When it was basically gone stop the burner. It can take about five minutes, maybe a bit more. The second layer is added using the same math measuring from the new, smaller diameter created by the wool.
