Knitwit Fuzzbuster Fleece or Fleecy is perfect for tracksuits, sweat shirts, jumpers, school wear and dressing gowns. It is brushed on the inside for warmth and smooth on the outside.
It is a consistently good quality fleece with extra weight (a full 260 grams/sq metre), it uses low pill yarn to resist pilling, and it is available in a good range of colours and comes with matching rib trim for almost all colours.
Knitwit Fuzzbuster Fleece is low stretch, by which we mean less than 25%. If your pattern is sized for a medium stretch (25-35%) fabric, you can still use it, but you may need to cut out a size bigger.
Two way stretch, by which we mean the fabric stretches in 1 direction only, from selvedge to selvedge.

Pre-wash any fabric containing cotton, wool or viscose before cutting out.
Sewing with Knit Fabrics
For jersey knit fabrics, we use and recommend Gutermann Sew-All Thread, a top quality 100% polyester thread available in a huge range of colours to match your fabric.
You will need stretch needles for sewing knit fabrics. Use Schmetz Stretch needles – 75/11 on fine knit fabrics, and 90/14 on other knit fabrics.
Start each new project with a fresh needle, especially if the fabric contains cotton or wool. Blunt needles can leave holes on the stitching line.
