 Let's talk about fleece


There is probably nothing warmer and cozier than a fleece sweater or blanket. If you can snuggle up in a thick fleece sweater in winter, you know you probably won't freeze. But I personally love fleece blankets too. Yes, I like to be very warm. Fleece made of polyester is, in addition, an inexpensive alternative to wool fleece. In our webshop, you can find several kinds of fleece. Our cuddly fleece eco is, in addition, still made of recycled polyester. And have you already seen our personalized fleece blankets? 

Now, before you browse the webshop, let's briefly learn about the history of fleece.

1. What is Fleece? Where does the name come from, and who invented it? When was this fabric first used, and in what field is it mainly used?

2. Fleece fabric is a soft, warm, and lightweight type of fabric known for its fuzzy texture. It is typically made from synthetic fibers such as polyester, although there are also natural fleece fabrics made from wool.

3. The name "fleece" is derived from the Old French word "flees," which means "sheep's wool." The fabric resembles the soft wool obtained from sheep, which is why it was named fleece. 

4. The invention of modern fleece fabric can be attributed to Malden Mills Industries, a textile company founded by Aaron Feuerstein in the United States. In 1979, Malden Mills introduced a synthetic fleece fabric called Polartec, which revolutionized the market with its excellent insulation properties, breathability, and quick-drying capabilities.

5. Fleece fabric gained popularity in the outdoor and activewear industries due to its warmth-to-weight ratio and moisture-wicking properties. It provides insulation by trapping air between its fibers, making it an excellent choice for garments designed to keep individuals warm in cold weather conditions.

6. Since its introduction, fleece fabric has found applications beyond outdoor apparel. It is widely used in the production of jackets, hoodies, blankets, hats, scarves, and other cozy and comfortable garments. Fleece is also commonly used in the manufacturing of bedding materials and as a lining material for various products.


Fleece fabric is a soft and warm material initially developed by Malden  Mills Industries and known for its resemblance to sheep's wool. It gained  popularity for its insulation and moisture-wicking properties,  primarily in the outdoor and activewear industries.

Today, fleece is widely used in a range of garments and household products for its comfort and thermal properties.
