I'm looking for solid color fleece fabric - sold by the yard - that is
about 85% to 95% nylon fleece, and the remainder spandex (to make the fabric
stretch well during use). Can anyone recommend a site that has good
quality fleece fabric with these characteristics?
Malden Mills Outlet
has PowerStretch in a limited range of colors.
Many outdoor/active wear suppliers, like Peak Fabrics
will carry PowerStretch or similar
fabrics from other manufacturers.

You're welcome, I think you'll like Malden Mills' products.
And another hint, if ever you are looking for Polartec® 200
($11.99/yard) you'll find the same product in limited colors
in their "Blankets and Throws" section
the equivalent of $8.00/yard in 2.25 yard lengths. Same stuff, just less expensive, and they cut generously. AND free shipping! ;-)
Thank you SO much for posting this Beverly. About two years ago, when
silkweight was available only in black or white, I bought two yards of
black and made a pair of tee shirts. I love them, even in this sticky
climate they stay cool and comfortable, and do not lose their shape or
color. I wished so hard that it was in other colors, but......
And now I see that they have brought the other colors back. Yippee.
Once I have made up at least some of the fabrics I ordered a month ago,
I shall buy some in colors. (I really don't like to have a stash, it
always stares at me making me feel guilty).
