Open Cell foam

I'm looking for a sturdy open cell foam that resists compression/bending but isn't rigid; and can handle the laundry. A one-inch thick sheet should be too stiff to bend with one hand.  It's for a protective mitt for self-destructive psychiatric patients.

Re: Open Cell foam

There are plenty of sturdy polyethylene foams out there, but they are generally CLOSED CELL.  Is that a problem?  In the laundry, they would have less tendency to absorb water and would dry faster.
