Next time I'll test for the right side. Frankly though, after all the years I've been sewing with fleece and the many items I've made, I don't know that the wicking direction has really made a difference. I usually pick the "pretty" side or the one that seems to pill less.

Thanks for posting this article :-)

Used correctly, polar fleece will wick moisture away from your body and into the fabric, thus keeping you warmer.

This is an article by Debbie Colgrove.

Haven't heard a word from the gal who originally wrote the article.
