Frequently asked questions about fleece fabric:

Originally introduced by Malden Mills in 1979, the company has since been renamed Polartec LLC. Interestingly, the developer intentionally did not patent the produce to promote its widespread use.
Fleece is not waterproof. It is water resistant up to a point and really only shower restistant.  Fleece is  a soft, napped synthetic fabric with thermal insulation properties. Polar fleece (also called microfleece) is much lighter than wool but has some of the same properties as wool. It is soft, light, warm and comfortable. It resists water absorption (i.e. it is hydrophobic) and retains some thermal insulation even when wet. Snow sticks to fleece really well which in turn reduces it thermal properties.  It is quite flammable unless treated with a flame retardant, it is not windproof and it holds static electricity and hences accumulates lint, dirt and hair.  This is why some people report that their dogs fur gets matted or felted after prolonged wearing.

Polar fleece was originally made from Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) but it can be made from other synthetic fibres, including recycled plastic bottles or recycled fleece.
