Our much-loved Blake fleece in the awesome 'Cara' print - delicate geometric line work in multicolours on a black background, which is giving us all the retro fleece feelings and is designed in-house by our print designer Elspeth.
Made from super soft fleece fabric made from recycled plastic bottles.
Recycled polyester is great because:
- It saves plastic bottles from landfill or the sea
- It's super soft and cosy
- Less energy is used to create polyester yarn from recycled bottles than is needed to create brand new polyester yarn from oil
But nothing is perfect:
- All polyester garments shed microfibres when washing them, but there is something we can do to prevent this - use a guppy bag to catch the microfibres, we sell them at a small loss to keep the price accessible, get one here > guppy bag

I was looking for a cropped sweatshirt to wear in summer when the sun goes down and the chill winds raise... this is so perfect! Also it works out as an extra layer when you don't fancy wearing a jacket, it's small enoguh to fold easily away in your bag. The print is very cool too, I have received so many compliments!
I really like this, I have it in the largest size (XXL I think) and its a nice fit. It is very short in the body, obviously it is cropped but depending if you have a quite large chest it could end up being shorter! The fabric is soft and I love the print and the elasticated adjustable hem. I'd say the only downside is it could be bigger, I'm a UK 18/20 and the XXL is the perfect fit but if you're a size 20+ it probably won't be oversized. More sizes would be great!
Love this fleece! Perfect for wearing during springtime and on summer evenings
