Why use fleece fabric?
Fleece is one of the most commonly used fabrics in the textile industry today, because of its versatility. Coats, scarves, gloves and other cozy winter wear are a good example, due to the fact that the fabric increases the body temperature when it’s against the skin. But also, for athletic garments, it’s a perfect choice. It wicks perspiration and moisture away from the body, while air keeps being circulated through the fibers. So there are many ways to go with fleece.
The difference between fleece and wool
Fleece fabric is often being compared to wool, but there are some differences. Wool is known for being heavier in weight, less soft, and it insulates even when wet. Some people find the fabric itchy, which is unlikely to happen with fleece because of the synthetic polyester material. The advantage with wool, however, is the fact that it’s made environmentally friendly, while fleece is only eco-friendly when its produced from recycled plastics.
