Fleece: this material that comforts us with its ease and softness to the touch. Fleece sweatshirts have become staples in our wardrobes, combining comfort and casual style. Whether you wear them for a lounging session at home or for a casual outing on the town, these soft and warm garments are always a safe bet. To prolong their lifespan and maintain their soft feel, it is essential to take good care of them. In this article, we'll show you a complete guide on how to care for your fleece hoodies, so you can continue to cherish them for many seasons to come.

1. Read the care instructions

Before you start washing or caring for your fleece sweatshirts, take the time to carefully read the labels and care instructions provided by the manufacturer. Each sweatshirt may have specific washing, drying and ironing details, and it is crucial to follow them to avoid damage to the fabric. The RADAR Cannes team will be more than happy to show you the instructions for our products and help you decipher the labels in question.

2. Machine wash: gentle mode and cold water

To machine wash your fleece sweatshirts, always opt for a gentle program and use cold water. Hot water may deteriorate the fibers of the fleece, causing shrinkage and loss of softness. Also avoid using harsh detergents, instead opt for a mild detergent without bleach.

3. Select the appropriate wash cycle

Choose the appropriate wash cycle for your fleece sweatshirts. Preferably use the delicate cycle or the one specially designed for delicate fabrics. Reducing the spin speed is also advisable to avoid wrinkling or damaging the fabric.

4. No bleach or fabric softener

Avoid using bleach or fabric softeners when washing your fleece sweatshirts. Bleaches can cause discoloration and fabric damage, while fabric softeners can reduce the ability of fleece to absorb moisture and alter its natural softness.

5. Air dry or gentle cycle

Drying is a crucial step in caring for your fleece sweatshirts. It is best to air dry them by laying them flat on a clean, flat surface. Avoid snagging them, as this may cause unwanted stretching of the fabric. If you use the dryer, choose the delicate cycle at low temperature to avoid any damage. Especially for our southern customers, the sun is not uncommon.

6. Iron at low temperature and inside out

If you need to iron your fleece sweatshirt, be sure to do it inside out to avoid marking the fabric. Set the iron to low, as too much heat can damage the synthetic fibers of the fleece.

7. Store properly

To keep your fleece sweatshirts in good condition, fold them neatly and store them in a drawer or on a clean shelf. Avoid packing them with other clothes, as this may alter their shape.


By following these simple but essential tips, you can extend the life of your fleece sweatshirts and preserve their softness and comfort for years to come. It doesn't take much effort to take care of those delicate garments, but the rewards will be obvious when you slip on a fleece sweatshirt that still feels as comfy and soft as it did on day one. So take care of your fleece hoodies, cherish them, and they will keep you warm and comforting for a long time.
