Fleece is a wonderful winter fabric. Made from 100% polyester fiber, fleece has great heat insulation properties despite its light weight, and it has a cozy, super soft napped surface. Needless to say, fleece is incredibly comfortable to wear. The fuzzy fabric is easy to sew and makes a great option for adding a layer of warmth without the bulk of a heavy fabric. Here are a few pieces from this winter’s collections that incorporate comfortable fleece and would be easy to make at home, complete with links to buy at Fashion Fabrics Club Online.

A plaid patterned fleece like blue plaid fleece or pink plaid fleece make a great looking cardigan, especially in an asymmetrical pattern like this one-button cardigan from Bobeau.

For an elegant, sleek looking robe that feels as comfortable and cozy as your favorite sweatshirt, use a plush fleece in a dark, rich color like wine/berry red Sherpa fleece.

One-piece pajama jumpsuits have become incredibly popular in the leisurewear sector, particularly for young women. They come in a range of fabrics from cotton jersey to thermal to flannel to fleece; they sometimes come with a hooded top and/or footed bottoms. For a particularly in-style bodysuit, use an animal print fleece like brown cheetah fleece, bonus points if you incorporate a rear flap!

Fleece WelliesWellies

If you ever plan on wearing your rain boots in the winter months then a pair of willies, or boot socks, are essential to avoiding frozen toes. Pick a nice neutral color like dark navy blue fleece so you can pair them with all different colored boots and outfits.

Fleece VestVest Zip Up

A minimal zip up vest in a neutral grey like light grey fleece is a great addition to a man’s winter wardrobe due to its incredible functionality and versatility. Pair it with a flannel and jeans to chop wood outside, or with a button-up, jacket and khakis for a casual day date.

Fleece SweatpantsSweatpants

Everyone, both men and women, should have a pair of drawstring smoke black fleece leisure pants in their closet. Much more classy looking than sweatpants with the same comfortable feel, they are a wardrobe staple.
