Note: As of March, 2023, Fleece is being phased out, to be replace by Polartec® Fleece.

Fleece is a low-loft 100% polyester napped fabric. Lightweight and slightly stretchy, it has the feel and character of traditional fleece, with half the weight and thickness. Its double-face construction creates a soft hand on both sides making it perfect for blankets (including no-sew tie blankets), pillows, plushies, adult and children’s loungewear and cold weather apparel. Because Fleece doesn't fray when cut, it’s a great fabric for novice and experienced crafters alike.
