Preferably hand wash or spot clean. If not, use low temperature, laying flat after washing and brushing pile into place. Every few washes if you feel the fibres stiffening, wait until dry and brush until they relax again.
How to Care for your Soft Fleece Fabric
Polar fleece needs a little pampering to keep it nice and soft. Machine wash at 30°c, dry flat and brush regularly so the fibres don't go stiff. Do not tumble dry or iron. For best results, use a clothes brush with soft, tightly packed together bristles, rather than a standard hairbrush. What you'll be pleased to know is that it's a waterproof fleece fabric, so repels water.

This textile is fire rated safe for nightwear, so why not rustle up a pair of cosy pyjamas or a nightie for you or a loved one.

We see many customers using our waterproof fleece fabric for making gloves, hats, jogging bottoms and other outdoor gear. As it doesn't absorb moisture, you can create apparel that's suitable for winter - ideal for when you get caught in a downpour or playing in the snow!
