    While searching About.com for the fleece scarf/hood mentioned in another post, I came across a very interesting article. It is titled "How to Choose the Right Side of Fleece Fabric". I had NO IDEA that fleece had a right and a wrong side! If you put the incorrect side against your skin, you will be drawing moisture from the atmosphere towards your skin!! Used correctly, polar fleece will wick moisture away from your body and into the fabric, thus keeping you warmer.

    You can read it here: http://sewing.about.com/od/fabricsin...erightside.htm

    This is an article by Debbie Colgrove.

    I learned this when fleece blankets starting to be popular. I still pick the prettier side.

    Whoops! I've used fleece for years and apparently wrong every time (I used the stretch/curl tip, had it going the wrong way) LOL.

    This is the first time I have used fleece. I have it 1/2 done and I guess I am doing it wrong. Oh, well, better luck next time. :cry:
