Silly fabric question.

Postby kat1980 » Sat Jun 11, 2011 9:42 pm

Hi everyone. I was wondering if somebody could help me.

I bought loads of cheap "fleece" throws from Primark and Tesco and really need to do something with them. I was wondering, would this material be similar to felt? I know it's thinner but if I doubled it up would is be similar?

Many thanks.

Fleece is constructeddifferently to felt. It is a knitted fabric with a brushed surface which is why it is stretchy. What do you want to use it for?

It's a felt project, just flowers and what not. It's just because I have it lying around I just wanted to use it up.
