Fleece is a knitted fabric with loops at the back and the front of the fabric, and of which both sides are significantly roughened. This makes for a very soft and thick fabric, that is also nice and warm. Because of the knitted structure, fleece is slightly elastic broadwise. Both sides of the fabric look the same. Note that, because of the treatment fleece gets, the fabric does shrink a bit more when washed for the first time. It’s best to wash fleece on a wool program. And there is a big advantage to cotton fleece. In contrast to synthetic fleece, cotton fleece does not release any harmful plastic particles during the washing process.
