Fleece Materials With Some Spandex

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?

The best quality fleece made, IMHO is Polartec by Malden Mills, they make one version with Lycra:

has PowerStretch in a limited range of colors.
Many outdoor/active wear suppliers, like Peak Fabrics and RockyWoods 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! ;-) Beverly

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).

Link? I don't see anything called "silkweight" at milldirecttextiles.com, sounds intriguing.
