Schöffel's fleece products are functional garments that are perfect for wearing as lightweight warming layers for sporting activities in summer and in winter. These textiles, which have a high thermal rating for their low weight, also appeal for everyday wear and in all kinds of leisure activities. Schöffel uses various kinds of fleece that are suitable for a wide range of weather conditions, and so is able to offer the right product for any area of use.
What is fleece?
Fleece is a knitted fabric with a soft, roughened surface. Tiny yarn loops are created in the production of knitted fabric that are cut open and roughened to create the soft, cosy structure. The higher the surface weight of the material in grams per square metre, the higher the thermal rating of the clothing. The weight generally ranges from 100 to 300 grams, which means we can distinguish between different weight classes of fleece variants.
Micro Fleece is the version with a grammage of up to 210 g/m². It is the perfect year-round companion, and can also be worn directly against the skin as a comfort layer. Along with all the usual characteristics, it is particularly thin and light, and packs down small.
Another modification is Medium Fleece, which has a grammage of between 210 and 300 g/m². This achieves a higher thermal rating. The fabric is the perfect midlayer for lower temperatures.
With its grammage of at least 300 g/m² or more, Super Warm Fleece provides a pleasant warmth when it is really cold in winter or in the high mountains.
Very special comfort thanks to the high elasticity is provided by the version Stretch Fleece. It combines the characteristics of fleece and stretch, and so can even be used for close-fitting cuts with maximum function.
What does Fleece mean for the consumer?
Wearers of fleece products have the benefit of extremely soft, warm, cosy materials combined with reliable functions. Moisture is transported away from the body to the outside, which is why the fabric dries quickly. Thanks to the dense fibre structure, fleece also has a certain water-repellent property. Breathability is still retained. These durable, resistant textiles also offer the optimum thermal insulation, and so protect against cooling down. At the same time, fleece clothing offers an excellent level of wear comfort and feels pleasant against the skin thanks to the cosy, shape-retaining material.
