Polar fleece gloves also known as fleece gloves are a soft napped insulating synthetic glove made from polyethylene terephthalate. Fleece fabric is so warm and soft it’s been used to make pajamas, socks, shirts, and even sheets. Fleece is soft, lightweight, warm and comfortable fabric. Polar fleece gloves are a great alternative to wool gloves, and polar fleece gloves are machine washable and quick dry. A pair of fleece gloves will keep your hands warm while you’re shoveling snow, walking the dog or skating around the ice rink, while allowing more dexterity than mittens.
