Originally created by Malden Mills in the 1970's as an alternative to wool, fleece has some wonderful technical qualities developed for the outdoor apparel industry.
Contrary to what people may think, good quality fleece is breathable and will not impede a baby's breathing since it was designed to accomodate individuals participting in high energy activies where persperation had to be able to escape through the fabric.
Some of the great qualities include:
• Quick drying - moisture will dry quickly as the fibers will not absorb it.
• Wicking - any moisture is moved away from the skin along the fibers.
• Durablility - fleece is durable and this product is designed to be passed on.
• Easy care- small accident? No problem, simply sponge off or throw in the washer/dryer.
Fleece is naturally stain and water resistant
Aside from being incredibly soft and warm, it will also appeal to your baby's sense of touch.
