Printed Coral Fleece Design 6
While Coral Fleece and Polar fleece are related – they are more like cousins than immediate family. Each has some unique properties that you should be aware of so you can make the best choice for your fleece sewing project!
Coral Fleece is thicker and has a higher “pile” than polar fleece. In layman’s terms it’s furrier than polar fleece. It’s what gives it it’s name (think coral poking up from the sea) and makes it perfect for blankets.
Made of 100% polyester the fleece lends itself to outdoor wear - quick to dry & still warm when wet. Coral fleece fabric is a very soft, decadent fabric. It’s the perfect fabric for winter jackets, blankets, hats, mittens and tops.
Coral fleece is more expensive than polar fleece, and is considered a step up in quality over polar fleece.
