How common, if at all, is saw dust for stuffing a cloth doll?

Given the number of dolls that survived, it's hard to tell how common different fillings are. Bran is fairly common, as is cotton or wool stuffing. Sawdust shows up, too; the challenge is (as with bran) that if it gets damp, the wood can stain the cloth over time. Some woods are also more resinous, and thus stain more over time anyhow.

Thanks Elizabeth.  I have a friend that just finished cutting the wood for 900 birdhouses for a Cub Scout day camp.   Needless to say there is plenty sawdust around....
