What are people's general thoughts on fleece bedding? Am I being unreasonable thinking it's going to lead to eight hours of inhaling dust and plastic fibres?

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.

I sleep in a vest with the covers thrown off, fleece bedding makes me sweat just thinking about it!

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.

Sounds incredibly wasteful too. All those sheets going in the bin every year. Terrible.

My cotton stuff is 15+ years old and still decent!

I do like brushed flannel for spring and early autumn, cotton for summer. Our house is freezing, though, even in summer.

I also love my fleecy bed set .. think it was from B&M , not on yet will keep that for when it drops down a bit more

Would it though? Fleece pyjamas dry really quickly.


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.

If I had fleece bedding I’d spend the night dripping in sweat and unable to sleep I like a nice breathable cotton I can’t even be done with poly cotton.
