“What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of winter to give it sweetness.” ― John Steinbeck,
Winter is upon us, the nights are getting darker, the days shorter and colder. Bears and squirrels are going into hibernation but You don’t need to sleep till Summer. Not with our range of warm fabrics to keep out the chilly North winds.
Our top selling anti pill fleece fabric is lightweight, warm and comes in a great range of stunning colours. The composition and dense structure of the fibres mean that warm air generated by the body is trapped by the fleece keeping you warm. Just as wearing garments in layers will trap the heat from your body-fleece, being a densely woven fabric will trap this heat with just one layer. Of course layering fleece garments will have the effect of trapping more body heat – keeping you warmer still. Choose an anti pill fleece. Anti Pill means the fabric wont become bobbled after wear and washing like cheaper fleeces, prolonging the life of the fabric, ensuring it looks good for years.
Fleece is great for all types of clothing and applications. Hoodies, jackets, mittens, scarves, hats, blankets and throws as well as pet bedding and warm jackets for dogs.
