How To Choose The Right Side Of Fleece Fabric

Wicking is Important


Polar Fleece fabric has a wicking property which takes moister away from the body and into the fabric. If you have the wrong side as the right side, you could be wicking moisture from the elements towards your skin.

Find the right side of a fleece fabric by sprinkling water on two different areas on the opposite sides of the fabric, the side that absorbs or wicks the water the fastest is the right side.

Keep you cut fabric from accidentally using the wrong side by marking each cut piece with chalk on the wrong side.

The selvage edge of fleece will curl when stretched, the side it curls to is the right side of the fabric.
