Fleece; long-pile cloth; fleecy fabric

heavyweight wool fabric which is soft to the touch, with a longer, partially shaped, horizontal pile, which conceals a twill or satin weave. Produced from simple carded yarn. Used for ladies' and men's coats. The name is taken from the German "Flausch" - tuft of hair, which characterizes the surface of the fabric. The term is often used in error to describe velours, a fabric with a short-cut pile.
