I see some of the loops on cage sets (on the ends of pouches, hammocks, vines etc.) are made of fleece, some of ribbon, and some of elastic. Are they all safe options?

I have used ribbon and elastic. But i noticed snags where their nails got caught. So now I only use fleece. The fleece loops or ties last longer too. Once the snags start they become more hazardous. Toes can get caught and cut off circulation.

I use rex lace and fleece for stringing toys.

I have been sewing for sugar gliders since around 2003. I agree with VBclick, fleece is by far safer. I have seen gliders get nails and toes caught in elastic. The idea is nice, but it isn't functional for sugar gliders. Ribbon usually doesn't last and it snags on nails (and for whatever reason my gliders always seem to destroy it!).

If you get a pouch with a fleece loop which doesn't allow the pouch to hand as low as you would like, you can always lengthen it with cable ties, baby links or even strips of fleece cool
