How do I make fleeces soft again?

I've been given lots of lovely clothes, blankets and baby things by a friend, as I'm expecting in February, but a lot of the fleece items are hard and scrubby-looking. Is there a way to restore the softness?

Try washing them with a double dose of Calgon.

Wash them and use lots of fabric conditioner. Then tumble dry them. That should work.

Thanks ladies! I'll try the Calgon and the fabric conditioner, tumble dry and report back grin

Has that worked? My little boy has a couple of lovely fleecy tops which have gone all hard. What makes them hard, do you know? Would it help washing them by hand?

I have no tumble dryer, unfortunately...
