Someone posted here once that you could tell the right side of the fleece by
stretching it.  Does it curl to the front or the back...can't remember.

Thanks!!

Dear Paulin,

It curls to the front.  But if it looks the same on both sides, you can
use either side; just be consistent when you lay out your pattern
pieces.  Quilters often use the "wrong" side of a fabric because it
blends with the other fabrics better--your fabric, your choice!!

Malden Mills fleece curls to the right side if you pull along the
selvage and to the wrong side if you pull across the width.

The usual fleece tends to curl to the right side.  Not important unless it has
a special finish like wicking or DWR, in which case a drop of water on both
sides will tell you which side to use out.

Actually identifying the wrong side is important, even it they look the same
to start.  I have a jacket made from MM fleece, and the inside looks very
nice still, but the outside - which I was very carefull to be consistent -
turned out to be the wrong side.  Of course being MM fleece it looks better
than "cheap" fleece.  And unless someone compares to the inside and outside,
noone is likely to notice.  Of course I do.
