Polyester fleece blankets are made from Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) or other synthetic fibers and can also be made out of recycled PET bottles or even recycled fleece. Polyester fleece is lightweight, warm, soft, and hydrophobic, holding less than 1% of its weight in water which allows it to retain much of its insulating powers even when wet.
Polyester fleece is machine washable, dries quickly and is very breathable and will not lose its thickness when compressed; it does not matter if you crush, pull, twist or wad it up, it will come back to its original shape and thickness.
Although fleece blankets are also called “fleece throws” or “fleece throw blankets” there is a difference, and that is the size. Fleece blankets run in sizes that correspond with bedding dimensions; king, queen, full, twin and baby.
Fleece throws or fleece throw blankets are smaller than a twin blanket (but bigger than a baby blanket) which is the perfect size to “throw” over your lap or shoulders. Fleece throws are popular at outdoor sporting events (especially when personalized with a team logo or mascot) which are why fleece throws are sometimes called stadium blankets.
Regardless of the size, the words “fleece blankets”, “fleece throw blankets”, “fleece throws” or “stadium blankets” are used interchangeably.
Most people think you need a resale certificate to buy wholesale fleece blankets however; many vendors will sell them at wholesale with a one case minimum. To get the best price when buying fleece blankets on line, use your favorite search engine to find a company that sells “wholesale fleece blankets” or “fleece blankets bulk”.
