Even though polar fleece has only been around since the 1980's, a prominent news magazine included it on a list of one hundred great things of the 20th century. If you have ever been protected by fleece against cold winter winds you would surely agree with that magazine's verdict.
Polar fleece has many wonderful properties which make it stand out as the ideal fabric for winter. Fleece is soft, it dries quickly and it still insulates when wet. Since it is also lightweight, you’ll perspire less when active, making fleece the perfect fabric for winter sports. All of the abovementioned features are combined with a wide array of colors and prints to produce an essential fabric for your wardrobe.
Our Solid Polar Fleece fabrics are anti-pill and printed on both sides. Today’s fleece fabric is a high tech, high performance product that is very easy to sew.

Storing Solid Polar Fleeces
Before storing your fleeces for an extended period of time it is important to have them properly laundered to prevent dust, soil and stains from attracting critters. Furthermore, avoid storing your fabrics in attics or basements; these places tend to be vulnerable to mold, mildew, insects and other threats. The best location in your home for storage is a cool, dry room out of direct sunlight. If using a closet, make sure there is sufficient air circulation to prevent mold growth.
Your solid fleece fabrics can be stored in bags of linen, cotton or muslin. Do not use plastic bags, cedar chests or cardboard boxes for storage. Fumes from polyurethane foam, cedar closets and acids in unvarnished wood and cardboard can damage your fabrics. Acid free tissue paper can also be employed in the storage of your solid polar fleece fabrics.
