Arctic fleece is a knit fabric that stretches on the crossgrain. It sheds water, holds body heat, but allows for perspiration to escape. Fleece is comfortable and warm and survives years of abuse. It is suitable for sweatshirts, pull-on pants, short cropped jackets, and vests.
Fabric Tip: On high-loft (General term for a fiber structure containing more air than fiber. In general, higher loft retains more warmth) fabrics such as polyfleece, fake fur, and mohair, pattern weights are far more effective than pins in securing the pattern to the fabric.
