For The Love Of Fleece: Soft & Warm Clothing And Accessories

Updated on February 1, 2015

We've Been Fleeced! (In A Good Way)

If you peek into my closet and go through my drawers, you'll see a LOT of fleece -- pullovers and pants, fleece socks, fleece mittens and hats, fleece scarves, and even a homemade, red fleece serape (pictured here). I have a big pile of fleece PJs, and if I could find fleece underpants and bras, I'd wear those too. Did I mention I have a thing for fleece?

And Steve here is a big fan of fleece himself. In fact, he even offered to model for us. What a sport!

What You'll See Here:


.... your Bod'

.... your Head

.... your Feet

.... your Bed

.... your Hands

.... your Face

.... your Pet

.... Any Ol' Place

And some goofy pictures of America's Next Top Mustached Model

Natural Fleece is basically wool

What Is Fleece?

Besides warm and soft....

Fleece in its natural form is the wool you get when you sheer a sheep or similar animal.

Here, however, I'm referring to fleece material, which generally has a combed or brushed nap, making it soft and airy. Wool fleece absorbs moisture and can be heavy, while synthetic materials are lighter and wick moisture, making them more suitable for strenuous activity.

Polyester fleece, a two-sided pile material, is often used for sweaters, sweatshirts, jackets, mittens, hats and blankets. It's moisture-resistant, dries quickly and doesn't pill up with extended use. This type of synthetic fleece became popular for use in outdoor clothing in the early 90s, when hikers found it to be lighter and warmer than wool. It's even been used in deep-sea diving suits and to make underwear for astronauts.

Fleeces are often referred to by weight.

Microfiber fleeces are very popular for athletic apparel, because they provide the warmth of much thicker fleeces without being bulky. They’re also very light.

100-weight fleeces are slightly heavier than Microfleece. They’re often used as a first layer or lightweight sweater, as well as for hats and gloves.

Medium-weight, or 200-weight, fleece is the most popular on the market due to the added warmth it provides without much additional bulk. A 200 fleece is good for all seasons and is often used for jackets, vests and blankets.

The 300-weight fleece is great for very cold outdoor activities, worn as an insulating layer by itself or under a waterproof shell.

Fleece For Your Bod'

Clothing, pajamas and robes

Work it, Steve! Work it!

(And could you suck it in, please.)

Here, the mustached one models his charcoal-gray fleece pullover sweatshirt (available in many different colors).

Steve--a hiker, artist and machinist--isn't easy on his clothing, but this much-worn, 5-year-old piece of fashion finery is as good as ... well, okay, not new, but it's got years of life left in it.

Below, you'll find fleece for your top, your bottom, and your whole body, for day or for night.

Fleece To Pull Over

Fleece pullovers come in v-neck, crewneck, zip-neck and occasionally turtleneck styles. Steve and I wear them all the time just as we would sweatshirts or sweaters.

Columbia Unisex Hemlock Ridge Pullover Fleece Jacket
Columbia Unisex Hemlock Ridge Pullover Fleece Jacket
This wind-resistant., 100% polyester, no-pill fleece pullover comes in 5 colors and 6 sizes. It features a half-zip front, a stand-up collar, and elastic cuffs for a snug fit. See the Amazon listing for the price range, depending on size and color selection.

Fleece To Zip Up

For outerwear or layering

A full-zippered jacket is great for layering during outdoor activities, over a synthetic tee and under a down vest, or a nylon or Gortex shell.

Columbia Women's Benton Springs Full Zip Jacket, Soft Fleece with Classic Fit
Columbia Women's Benton Springs Full Zip Jacket, Soft Fleece with Classic Fit
This 100% polyester jacket made of 420g MTR fleece is available in 15 colors and six sizes. It features zip closed pockets and an interior drawcord. See Amazon for the current sale prices on certain colors.

Fleece To Pull Up

Steve and I both carry a pair of fleece pants on our backpacking trips. They're great to pull over lightweight pants, tights or shorts while hanging around camp. I often put them on over my shorts when leaving the gym on chilly days and for lazy lounging around the house.

Polarmax Men's Quattro Fleece Pant (Black, Medium)
Polarmax Men's Quattro Fleece Pant (Black, Medium)
These pants are made of 92% Polyester fleece and 8% Spandex, so they're machine washable and can be tumble dried. The have flat seam construction for the greatest comfort and a tighter fit for no bulk layering.

Fleece To Sleep Or Lounge In

I have fleece PJs, but not footie fleece PJs. Oh, husband! I would like to request these for Christmas, please!

Big Feet PJs Red Fleece Footed Pajamas for Women and Men Extra Large
Big Feet PJs Red Fleece Footed Pajamas for Women and Men Extra Large
This one-piece, non-shrink polyester fleece pajama is made for both men and women, with vinyl-padded non-skid soles, buttons in front and a Velcro "trap door" flap in back. It comes in size Small (110-155 lbs., 5'2"), Medium (135-180 lbs., 5'4"), Large (160-210 lbs., 5'7") and X-Large (175-235lbs., 5'9").

Find Lots More Fleece Footie PJ's Here

Let's do a little shopping with Steve

Come along, dear....


Steve, let's go! We'll come back here to the fleece costumes when we're finished looking at footie PJ's.

These are micro-fleece footed pajamas for men and women, with button-down fronts and padded non-slip feet. And, yes, they have rear trap doors too.

Fleece To Answer The Door In (That is, a fleece robe)

You know, when the doorbell rings just as you're getting out of the tub or while in the process of air-drying.

Del Rossa Super Plush Microfiber Teal Bathrobe, Teal 3X/4X (A0302TEA4X)
Del Rossa Super Plush Microfiber Teal Bathrobe, Teal 3X/4X (A0302TEA4X)
Enjoy spa-like comfort in this soft, warm lounging piece. There's also a nice plush microfiber bathrobe for the men.

Fleece To Go Trick-or-Treating In

This comfortable getup, perfect for monkey business, includes a jumpsuit with the attached plush headpiece.

Now, do they make these for adults too? And who needs to wait for Halloween to wear this cute suit?

One reviewer writes:

"My son wore this Curious George costume on Halloween. It was comfortable, complete and adorable. He received tons of compliments from friends, family and strangers. I loved that he could wear normal, comfortable clothes underneath and it had hands and feet, but my son was still able to use his hands and feet easily. The headpiece was attached so he could wear it or leave it down and we didn't need to worry about losing it."

Rubie's Costume Curious George Fleece Child's Costume, Small, One Color
Rubie's Costume Curious George Fleece Child's Costume, Small, One Color
Darn, it doesn't look like this comes in my size. This fleece Curious George costume is available in child sizes only: Toddler, Small, and Medium.

Fleece For Your Head

This fleece headwarmer was made by a good friend of ours from the fashion mecca of Confluence, Pennsylvania. It's a one-of-a-kind, I'm afraid, but there are lots more fun fleece hats to be found.

Here are a few more and some more subdued accessories, too:

The Fleece Hedgehog

Great Eastern Sonic the Hedgehog Series: Knuckles Fleece Cap
Great Eastern Sonic the Hedgehog Series: Knuckles Fleece Cap
They say this is a one-size-fits-all hat, so I guess that means it'll fit newborns right up to rocket scientists with extra-large heads. (I'm sure they'd wear this one, too.)

The Fleece Beanie

A simple, slick, warm and fuzzy hat for those who prefer not to stand out quite so much....

I know, no tassles or tails on this one. This is the formal model for black-tie occasions. (Oo, I should look for a black fleece tie for Steve.)

Sonette/Yupoong Veloured Polar Fleece Beanie-Black
Sonette/Yupoong Veloured Polar Fleece Beanie-Black
This hat comes in five different colors and is long enough to not only cover your head but also protects your cute little ears.

A Fleece Headband

I use my headband a lot. It's a great happy medium between a full head covering and no hat at all. And if my head still gets cold, I can just throw a hat or ball cap right over the top. Too warm, and I can pull the headband down around my neck.

Original Turtle Fur Fleece - 'Turtle Band', Headband, Black, One Size
Original Turtle Fur Fleece - 'Turtle Band', Headband, Black, One Size
This headband comes in a dozen different colors and is constructed with 95% polyester and 5% spandex fleece.

Fleece For Your Feet - Steve wants to show you his fuzzy socks. Very nice, dear.

Fuzzy Fleece Socks

These make great stocking stuffers or gift exchange goodies. Believe me, I know; I get at least two pair a year that way. (But I'm not complainin'!)

Acorn Versafit Sock Slipper, Icelandic Blue, Medium (Women's 10-11/ Men's 8.5-9.5) Standard US Width US
Acorn Versafit Sock Slipper, Icelandic Blue, Medium (Women's 10-11/ Men's 8.5-9.5) Standard US Width US
This micro-fleece sock, for men and women, is lightweight, soft and warm and wicks moisture to prevent odor. These socks are available in 28 colors and prints. See the Amazon listing for great sale prices on certain color and print selections.

Fleece For Your Bed

Talk about warm and cozy

The only problem is, it's sometimes difficult to get people out of it.

We make a fleece layer cake out of our bed: fleece fitted sheet, fleece top sheet, fleece blankets and fleece pillowcases. Within that fleece cocoon in my fleece jammies and fleece socks, icicles could be forming inside the house and I probably wouldn't know it. Sleeping Steve in his fleece socks and ... well, in his fleece socks ... probably wouldn't notice, either.

Cozy Sheets & Sets

Say goodbye to the Oo! factor when you climb into bed on those chilly winter nights and say, "Aahhh," instead.

Cozy Fleece Microfleece Sheet Set, Queen, Tan
Cozy Fleece Microfleece Sheet Set, Queen, Tan
These lightweight, machine wash and dry sets made of 100% polyester fleece come in five different colors and include flat and fitted sheets, and 2 pillowcases. They're available in twin, full, queen and king.

No, Steve, no!!

Fleece For Your Hands

Mitten/Glove Combos

a.k.a Glomitts

A Glomitt is a combination glove and mitten, making them versatile for all sorts of outdoor activities. (Or picking your nose in the cold.)

Women's/teen's size Micro-Fleece Convertible Mittens
Women's/teen's size Micro-Fleece Convertible Mittens
See the Amazon listing for the current sale price. Glomitts are made of Arctic Fleece with Thinsulate insulation and come in assorted colors and sizes.

I guess I finally have to wash those socks. Ugh.

Fleece For Your Face

What is there to say?

Fleece So Your Face Doesn't Freeze (Or for wearing when there's something really stinky around)

Raider Proclava Snowmobile Cold Weather Fleece Face Mask (Black, One Size)
Raider Proclava Snowmobile Cold Weather Fleece Face Mask (Black, One Size)
Definitely a nice thing to have when it's real cold and windy.
Fleece for pets

Fleece For Your Pet

Here's the Sassy one in her favorite burgundy fleece blanky. This used to be my burgundy fleece blanky, until my dog claimed it as her own years ago.

But there are fleece products made specifically for our best animal friends. Here are a few:

Fleece For Nap Time

Which is most of the time for our aging girl, unless we say the W-A-L-K word.

Cozy Pet Low Profile 1-3/4 Inch Orthopedic Pet Bed with Microtec Sleep Surface Brown 30 X 40 Inches
Cozy Pet Low Profile 1-3/4 Inch Orthopedic Pet Bed with Microtec Sleep Surface Brown 30 X 40 Inches
This 30" x 40" Orthopedic Pet Bed is made with a warm plush top cover enclosing a 1 3/4" convoluted foam pad. The mat is easy to care for with a removable cover that is machine washable and dryer safe.

Fleece For Bedtime

Have a Great Dane? Well ... I'll have to keep looking then. This won't fit, I'm afraid.

Fleece For Just About Anyplace

Fleece on the greens

Fleece on the plane

Fleece at the spa

And fleece on a train.

There's fleece for camping

And fleece for your car.

In fact, there's fleece

For wherever you are.

(Even on the potty.)

Fleece On The Plane, Bus Or Train

Hey, if you prefer the shoulder next to you, or that feeling of cold glass up against your cheek, that's all well and good. But here's a soft, squooshy option for keeping your sleepy head in your seat. I never take off without one.

Fleece Travel Pillow
Fleece Travel Pillow
This microfiber fleece inflatable neck pillow has a removable cover for easy washing.

Fleece On The Fairways

Sure, golfers need fleece too. After all, that vinyl golf cart seat can get kinda hot and sticky. So why not be comfortable while driving around, looking for your little white ball or waiting for your turn at the tee?

Classic Accessories Fairway Golf Cart Fleece Seat Cover, Sand
Classic Accessories Fairway Golf Cart Fleece Seat Cover, Sand
Actually, these fleece covers are intended to extend the life of your seats and to protect against dirt, sun damage, and wear. The click-close straps allow for easy installation, and the water-resistant, non-slip fleece fabric won't shrink or stretch.

Fleece In Camp

This is a great bag for summer camping and would even come in handy on a cruise, for deck chair star-gazing. It's also a good sleeping bag liner for really cold-weather camping.

Fleece On That Sore Spot

Just a little to the left ... uh, a little higher ... oo, a smidge to the right ... ahhhhhh, that's it.

Joruby Anti Snoring Devices - Snoring Solution Snore Nasal Dilators - Nose Vents Clip Snore Stopper to Ease Breathing & Snoring for Natural & Comfortable Sleep (White)
Joruby Anti Snoring Devices - Snoring Solution Snore Nasal Dilators - Nose Vents Clip Snore Stopper to Ease Breathing & Snoring for Natural & Comfortable Sleep (White)
If the night-time theme isn't your thing, this fleece-covered hot water bottle comes in a zebra print, as well as plaid, red, blue and green. This product holds in the heat longer than traditional rubber bottles, and the thermoplastic material is odorless and recyclable.

I thought this was kinda funny.

Check out the Cozy Comfort Fleece Toilet Seat Cover ad from Yoga Imports.

A Fleece Serape

Want a serape like this stylish red piece Steve is modelling? Well, you can have one just like it .... if you make it. All you have to do is get a big square of fleece, find the center and cut a slit in it, maybe stitch the edges on a sewing machine if you want to be fancy, and then stick your head through the hole. Oila!

Fleeces are available in most local fabric stores, but if you can't find it there, Seattle Fabrics sells 17 different types of fleece material from their online store.

      I'm addicted to fleece. Blankets galore adorn my house. I can't pass them up when I see them. My dogs have their own fleece blankets all over the floor - they still steal mine. Heck, all my small animal cages have fleece instead of animal bedding! Love fleece pullovers and hoodies. Great lens! Also, Steve is a great sport!
