Care Label Facts: Polar Fleece
With autumn upon us and temperatures dropping, you may be adding an extra layer of clothing in the morning as you prepare for your morning commute—outerwear. Do you love soft, polar fleece as much as we do? Polar fleece fabrics are made of a knit construction with a brushed or napped finish.
Because of the nature of the fabric construction, garments made from this fabric have a tendency to pill during wear and handling. No matter what care procedure is recommended— drycleaning or washing—clean your polar fleece in a net bag to minimize further pilling. To smooth the nap and improve the appearance of your jacket after cleaning, use a soft brush during finishing.
