Why do we use Fleece?

A few people have asked why we use fleece to make our play food.

When I decided to set out and make my own fabric food I researched what other people where using. What I found was that the majority of people where using felt.

I looked into the types of felt, what i found was discouraging. Eco felt was cheap, it stretched easily, didn’t feel very nice, and wasn’t durable. Not to mention the fact that Eco felt is made out of plastic.
More expensive felt was wool felt and while it works well for making play food, it is more expensive and if you, or the child who is playing with it has an allergic to wool it makes unusable.  We do offer wool felt custom orders and can make any of our fleece products out of wool felt, please contact us to set up a custom wool order.

Fleece is durable, you can throw it in the washing machine and dryer and it comes out good as new. It is inexpensive, comes in a rainbow of colors, its soft and squishy. It holds up to dramatic play and rough usage.
