Anti Pill Fleece Is the Perfect Match for a Project

Share Button

Fleece is typically sorted into one of two types. It’s either anti pill or non anti pill. The main difference is what happens after it’s been washed a few times. Anti pill fleece doesn’t develop any little pill outcroppings when it’s washed. It’s also considered a higher quality material.

These two facts mean that it’s better suited to a variety of different DIY projects. The biggest point to keep in mind is that anti pill fleece feels great against the skin. This is true even after repeated washing. Additionally, it’s fairly reasonably priced at around $17 for a yard of printed fabric.

All of this means that one can create a variety of clothing options at reasonable prices. Cardigans are the classic fleece projects. They highlight the lower overall price, ease of workmanship and soft but warm comfort. The resulting cardigans simply feel great against the skin. But at the same time they allow one to really feel comfortable and warm.

The same general principle tends to hold true for one’s hands. Fleece gloves are a classic item. But the fact that they’re less discussed than cardigans makes them a welcome surprise. One can even use leftover material from the cardigan to make gloves.

This pattern of matching materials continues with scarves. One typically has a fair amount of material left when working with yards at a time. The amount left over can often fit into a fairly impressive scarf. And if one can make a matching set of cardigan, scarf and gloves than all the better. All of them keep one warm and comfortable in even fairly harsh weather. Whatever you decide to create, be sure to tag us on Instagram @BigZFabric for a chance to be featured!
