Default Right and wrong side of polar fleece

Is there a right and wrong side to polar fleece and how does one tell the difference?

I don't believe that one side will wear better than the other, so just use which ever you like better. You paid for both sides!

Yes, there is a right and wrong side. How do you tell? Fold over a section of back side beside the right side and you'll usually be able to decide. The right side is generally a bit "longer" and "silkier" at least IMO.

Its one of those fabrics like Batik, chose which one you like the best, they are both right.

I think that when you give a slight pull at the edge, the fleece will 'curl' towards the wrong side. Someone please verify this for me.

That is what I have always done to determine the right side. Think I was told that at a fabric store years ago

I agree with romanojg, choose the side you like best.

I was told that the right side wasthe side where the needle looked like it went into the selvege (as opposed to coming out-being raised). If it's a print, one side looks a little better than the other, so you can choose whichever side you like better.
