It is through the fabric finishing process to achieve the fleece effect. Using the napping machine to make the fabric fluffy. The most common material for fleece is polyester. It is mostly for polar polyester fabric. Usually, fleece fabric can be singly fleeced or double fleeced. Single fleece means one side flat one side fleece. Double fleece means both sides are fleece. This depends on the fabric usage and customers’ needs. Certainly, both can keep warm and reach a softer feeling, which is a good substitute for wool. Besides that, fleece fabric is lighter and softer than wool.
First of all, the fabric is singly fleeced on the back side. While the front is like a milk silk surface. The fabric itself is jersey fabric. It’s light and thin, fine and smooth. Also, lightweight fleece fabric allows air permeability and perspiration resistance. Fleece finishing improves the warmth and comfort performance. Even in a wet condition, you won’t feel heavy or muggy. It is also skin-friendly to sensitive skin because the microfiber polyester has a milk-silk sense of touch. When you wear the fleece fabric T-shirt, you will feel like you are taking a milk bath. Moreover, polyester elastane fabrics always have good elasticity and retention. So it’s not easy to deform.
As we discussed before, the fuzz that came through post-treatment gives a quality of insulation. This enables you to stay warm even putting on very few. And you will not feel allergic if wearing fleece clothes. The fabric is tactile enough for the body. You will keep comfortable all day long.
Both ways of the fleece fabric have a good extension. While the vertical direction has more elongation than the horizontal. And it can recover to the original immediately. That is to say, the fabric can fit your body very well and keep original. So we can say it’s a durable fabric.
The fleece side seems to build a protective wall for your skin. The moisture outside is easy to absorb by the base fabric and evaporates quickly. While your sweat can soak into the surface and air dry. As a result, your skin keeps clean and dry, your body keeps away from sweat odor.
