    Kiln dried pine should do in a pinch, but if it has a strong pine odor, I wouldn't use it. But aspen shavings aren't expensive, and are much safer.

    You could try looking on Kijiji. I often see people with extra guinea pig items that they don't want/need anymore, including bedding. Actually, it's more common to find owners who use paper/wood shaving bedding than fleece bedding. And you can try the fleece bedding option for a month too. Just put down a towel with a fleece blanket on top. You can also add extra newspapers under the fleece where they seem to go to the bathroom a lot. You can get some pretty cheap fleece from Walmart. I got mine there on sale for $3.
