I've brought in a bunch of great colors in my favorite Polartec fleeces. Several different weights and styles, these are the same premium fleeces used by many of the outdoor clothing companies like Patagonia and LL Bean.
Why not for the doggies too?

Holly, what weight are you working with? I got the 300, and found it very hard to work with, was wondering if 200 or 100 is better.

This passion began with my first IG, Tara, who is waiting for me at the Rainbow Bridge. I love anything that involves IGs; spending time with Allie and Riley, attending East Coast IG Rescue events, SHOPPING for Allie's and Riley's wardrobes, and of course, communicating with other IG Whispers members. Aside from IGs, my interests include reading a variety of genres and being with friends and family, especially my 13 year old niece, Ella. Professionally, I am a reading specialist for first and second grades. Although I enjoy teaching, the best thing about my job is the long summer vacation, during which I am free to spend endless hours with Allie and Riley.

I hadn't realized until today, how many grades there were even in the 300. I purchased mine when it was still Malden Mills, and what I bought was the velour polartec, which is identical on both sides. The machine wasn't so much an issue, but the thickness of it, it was hard to hold and feed through. Forgot to say, I love the purples you pictured!

Yes, there are many, many styles in each weight. I am using the 300 velour/shearlings which has the bumpy texture inside for snoods and bodysuits...VERY thick and also the 200 and power stretch for lighter indoor garments. I've even got some high loft Polartec with FUR on the back in red and black! Waiting til closer to the holidays to feature it.
Windpro is in in 2 colors and I've got several new colors of the shearling arriving this week.

Whoa...I can't wait to see that! I'm going to go broke, but nobody can claim my girls are ill-equipped for the cold. I've never seen Polartec with fur on the back.

Georgia & Daisy's amethyst 2 tone polartec sweaters arrived yesterday.
They are so warm & soft & the colors are so pretty.
I'll get some photo's soon.
I've also ordered them the Windpro waterproof jammies in charcoal with red snoods & front legs.
It's already starting to get really cold up here so I can't wait for them to arrive!

Deb, here is the black "fur" paired with an anti pill fleece! It's smooth velour on one side. However, it is like sewing a CAT.....fur everywhere!!!
