I just wanted dive a bit deeper into the fleece fabric that we will use in our ongoing fleece project.
As mentioned earlier fleece came about in the late 1970 as a pursuit to find a preforming compliment to wool. It quickly became the go to material for mid-layers and one of the most beloved products for us outdoor enthusiasts.
The fleece fabrics superior performance when it comes to warmth, quick drying properties and durability have all made it a must for any outdoor activity.
the drawback with fleece fabrics is the shedding of microfibres and this has never really been dealt with before.
What Polartec now have done is to really reinvent how to produce a fleece fabric. Keeping all those really great performance qualities of a normal fleece fabric but at the same time reducing the shedding of microfibres up to 80% compare to any other premium fleece fabric out there.
By layering the fibers in-between two layers the fibers gets trapped and prevents microfibres from shedding. This unique construction also creates a grid of pillows that helps trapping air, the air the will keep you warm.
