    Might depend on the fleece. I made one for my grandson. It may have shrunk a little, not noticably, and hasn't bled at all.

    I've never had any problems with shrinking (100% poly) or bleeding.

    I use LOTS of fleece in my house ~ the cat LOVES it! lol I have never had it shrink, distort, ravel or bleed. The knots might come loose, but you can always re-tie them if they do. :D
