Fleece backed sweatshirt fabric

Fleece backed sweatshirt has a bigger pile on the fabric and feels cosier to wear due to that fleece backing on the inside. The fleece backed side is usually made from synthetic fibres.

What is sweatshirt fabric made of?

Most sweatshirts on the market today are made from a blend of fabrics. Sweatshirt fabric features a high proportion of heavyweight cotton, often mixed with polyester. Blends can also be made to take on a variety of textures. For example, our blended brushed back fabric has a soft feel in comparison to French Terry fabric, often known as loopback cotton, which is 100% cotton and serves the same purpose as the loops on a towel to absorb moisture and sweat. Other sweatshirt fabrics can include fleece-back and double-face. Shop all our variety of dressmaking fabric to find the one most suited to your project.
