Polar fleece, more often called just fleece, is a soft fabric made from synthetic yarn. One of the first forms of Polar Fleece created in 1979 by Malden Mills. New, light and strong pile fabric meant to mimic and in some ways surpass wool. Fleece has some of wool's finest qualities but weighs a fraction of the lightest available woolens. Fleece is extremely warm and soft to the touch. It wicks away moisture from the body. Fleece offers tremendous warmth in comparison to its weight and offers high fashion colors.


Fleece fabric is made by first twisting fibers into yarn. The yarn is then knitted into fabric. To raise the fibers and create a downy surface, the fabric is brushed with wire brushes. This process makes the cloth compact, & allows it to build air pockets for insulation. The fabric is constructed in such a way to allow the moisture to travel along the fibers, or yarns, away from the body and retain little water. Fleece offers more wind resistance per weight. Finally the fleece is then sheared and finished. Anti-pill finish is applied to fleece which involves shearing the surface so that the fabric is less likely to pill. Fleece fabric is predominantly made from 100% polyester.
Advantages of fleece are that it is:
  • Soft, very comfortable to wear and are extremely warm even with a relatively thin layer of material.
  • Has a rich texture and an attractive appearance.
  • It is seen by some as being environmentally friendly.
  • Easy to care, as it needs just a cool wash, line-dries quickly (certainly compared to wool), minimum or even no iron required.
  • It is a good alternative for those who are allergic or sensitive to wool.
