I was going to make the same suggestion. There are so many reasons to choose fleece over shavings, and hedgehogs can have their digger instincts satisfied in alternative ways. You can either leave a pile of fleece strips on the floor of the cage, or put them in some sort of box. Mine has a dig box which he loves so much, it's actually his primary sleeping place too.
