What are fleece jackets

A fleece jacket is a casual jacket made of polyester synthetic wool. It usually comes with one zipper down the front for a hassle-free, lightweight outerwear option. The wool material allows for more insulation from body heat while the synthetic fibers keep the heat in. This type of jacket is perfect for wearing alone or under a soft shell jacket for even more warmth.

What are fleece jackets good for

Fleece jackets are ideal for staying warm and dry in cool to cold climates. They are soft, lightweight, and comfortable. Fleece jackets come in a variety of colors and are great for wearing under soft shell jackets, instead of a fully insulated coat. These jackets are perfect for all-day wear, as they are easily sheddable depending on the wearer’s activities.

How to wash fleece jackets
You should always check the care label on any article of clothing before washing. You may either hand wash or machine wash your fleece jacket. Here’s how to machine wash:
  1. Turn the jacket inside out before placing in the washing machine with like colors in cold water.
  2. Set it to a gentle cycle.
  3. When ready to dry, place jacket on a flat surface, smooth out wrinkles, and let air dry. If you must use a tumble dryer, make sure it is set on low at a low temperature.
  4. Never use dryer sheets, irons, presses, or dry cleaning. These can ruin your fleece jacket!

How warm are fleece jackets

Many fleece jackets are made of synthetic and wool components. Wool makes fleece jackets warmer by using the body’s natural heat combined with insulation. Synthetic fibers help trap this heat inside so the wearer stays nice and comfortable. Because of these materials, fleece jackets are lightweight and great for layering with other jackets for even more warmth.
