Another thing I forgot to mention - stuff gets "embedded" in the fleece and refuses to come out! Hair, clumps of lint, threads and fibres from other bedding and clothing - it'll all work its way in the fleece. Looks unsightly after a while. The fleece fibres themselves get clumped and "chunky" after a few washes too.
DD had some and it went all flat and nasty.

Fleece makes me skin crawl. I could absolutely not sleep in what is essentially fluffy plastic. Natural fibers which allow moisture to move away from the skin are 100% my preference for all my bedding.
Same! I don't even like fleece linings in coats because they're just nasty! And I don't find them to be particularly warm either.
I'm still using a 7 tog duvet (and have the windows open) so I'm probably not the target audience. Cotton bedding all the way imo.

Would it though? Fleece pyjamas dry really quickly.

How do you wash this stuff ?
For me a quilt with a cotton cover. If I want more warmth its blankets over the top of that. Washing the quilt cover and sheets is fine. They are thin don't hold much water and dry pretty quickly.
But washing a fleece cover in winter must be a nightmare to get dry or spend forever in the tumble dryer.
I forgot that when people say "fleece" they normally mean polyester. Which is one of my tips for not needing the tumble dryer as much - make sure all your clothes are polyester.
