I can fully vouch for 'headliner' - I've started using it to line
the mascot heads that I build, and it definitely makes for a very soft 
and comfortable lining inside my heads.  I loved the feel so much in
the first all-foam head that I used it on, that I went back and lined
an older helmet-based mascot head with it, including using headliner
to replace the worn out foam pads that had come with the helmet

Funny thing is that until I saw Steve's post above, I didn't even 
realize that headliner is used in cars - what I have I found at a 
Hancock Fabrics store in the home decor section, next to the 
various flocked and marine vinyl fabrics.  Pretty inexpensive, too.
