Performance fleece comes in several weights and many colors.
Performance fleece is perfect for active and athletic weight. This heavier weight performance fleece is perfect for outer wear in colder weather. Zirotek 300 weight fleece weighs 16 ounces per linear yard. Double-sided Zirotek 300 wt. fleece with its velour finish is ideal for jackets and stadium blankets.
Zirotek is also available in 100 wt and 200 wt. Both weights are good for cold weather athletic wear when you need a medium weight fabric. Zirotek fleece is soft, yet strong and durable.
Anti-microbial Zirotek fleece wicks moisture away from your body, keeping you comfortable during heavy exercise. This one -sided velour fleece features four-way stretch that moves with you as you exercise.
Fleece is simple to sew. It does not ravel and is easy to cut. For standard polar fleece use a size 14 machine needle. Heavier fleece will do better with a 16 or 18 size needle.
If the fleece you are working with features four-way stretch remember to keep it stretched firmly as as you sew it, but don’t stretch it too tightly; test sew a few seams on scraps of your fabric before sewing the actual seams. Fortunately, because of its heavier weight, stretch fleece does not tend to pull down into the machine feed dogs like other stretch fabrics do.
