When purchasing fleece fabrics, many consumers suffer from the problem of pilling. This is where groups of short or broken fibres on the surface of the fabric become tangled together in a tiny knot or ball - also known as a pill. Pilling is often caused when the fibres of the yarns begin to be loosened under repetitive, continuous actions - such as friction and washing. This will affect the appearance of fabrics and reduce the use performance of fabrics, often putting customers off from buying polar fleece fabric. However, you can rest assured that the variants we have available at Fabrics Galore do not have this problem.
Our materials and fabrics are produced in Taiwan, not China - where most fleece fabrics are made. The polar fleece fabrics we have available are high-quality anti-pilling fleece fabrics, which are even sometimes made from recycled plastic bottles. Occasionally other natural fibres are incorporated into the fleece such as wool, hemp or rayon to create a certain texture or vibrancy of the fabric. They are super soft to touch, being the perfect material for a craft project or a warm piece of clothing. Therefore, if you are looking or something durable, soft and ecologically friendly - this is the fabric you need to choose.
The fleece garments you choose will depend on the purpose of the project you are creating. There are many different types of fleece fabric for you to try, including polyester fleece - which has become increasingly popular in recent years. Polyester fleece is smooth on the outside and plush on the inside, being very similar to a cotton or cotton-blend fleece. However, when compared to the cotton variants, polyester has a smooth side - that is shiny in appearance - which is excellent at repelling moisture.
Polar fleece fabric is also excellent, as it comes in so many different colours and patterns. Across our website, we have a myriad of different designs for you to choose from - with the fabric being made into everything such as hats and mittens to jackets and blankets. And as we have already mentioned, our fleece fabric is constructed in a way that won’t pill and form little balls on the fabric the way other synthetics will. Therefore, since it won’t fray or unravel, fleece fabrics are the perfect choice for crafting.
