Care Guide Fleece


All our fleece garments are made from recycled polyester, a wonderful material – if cared for properly.When you wash fleece, or any garment made from synthetic fibers for that matter, tiny microplastic fibers are released and might be transferred into nature.

The Guppyfriend washing bag is a simple solution that you can use when washing your garments made from synthetic fibers, like fleece. It protects the garment during washing and reduces the amount of microplastics that are released from the fabric. Besides this we also recommend the following care instructions:  

  • Avoid washing your fleece garments! Most stains can come off by just wiping it off with a wet cloth.
  • Iron the garment - ironing keeps the fibers flat which reduces the release of microplastic fibres (remember to read the care label instructions)
  • Clean your washing machine filter regularly 
  • Hang dry instead of tumble dry
