About Polar Fleece:
Polar Fleece is a synthetic material designed to mimic actual wool. In many ways Polar Fleece has actually surpassed the quality of wool, not only does it provide equal and perhaps better insulation depending on the thickness but it is also significantly lighter in weight. Polar Fleece is a very cheap material to manufacture thanks to the inventor's decision to not patent Polar Fleece. As a result, many vendors are now able to create fleece and use in their products, most often clothing like hats, jackets, blankets, and outdoor gear.
Advantages of Polar Fleece:
Hydrophobic - retains extreme insulating effects even when wet
Cheap to manufacture - can be made from recycled materials and is itself recyclable
Considered a vegan product
Precautions For Polar Fleece:
Untreated fleece can be very flammable, so be cautious near open flames or high heat sources
Static electricy causes fleece to attract dust, lint, pet hair and other things; therefore it is important to wash semi-regularly
Polar Fleece is not very windproof, we advise using an additional layer made from a more wind breaking material to optimize the benefits of Polar Fleece insulation. This addition layer should be used OUTSIDE of the fleece
Wash with low temperatures, high temperatures can damage polar fleece materials
This blanket is a great survival blanket for emergency preparedness or camping, hiking, or backpacking.
