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

This fleece is incredibly comfortable! This is my first time getting a Blake fleece from Lucy & Yak and I could not be more happy with it. If you are at all a fan of cropped sweaters I would highly recommend this fleece. I got it in a size S (I usually wear a size S-M) and it is perfect, not too oversized or too tight. I love that I can tighten it at the bottom depending how I want to style it. The colour of the fleece is exactly as shown in the photos.
I got mine yesterday morning and I’m still wearing an entire day later!
Well made, warm, soft and the colour is beautiful, I’d call it minty- sage.
Would highly recommend!
I'm always a little cautious buying cropped items, I have bought Navy and Orange Blake Fleece in the past and I went up an extra size to balance with my reluctance at buying a cropped fleece. I'm glad I did because I love that fleece and I couldn't resist when I saw it in this colour! It has only just been delivered but I am very happy with it already. The colour is gorgeous, it is so soft and fits nicely. Doing a great job with the sustainable packaging too, really appreciated!
I have already got two jumpers from Lucy and Yak and I LOVE them, I maybe wear them a lil too much. I have the yellow fleeced jumper the same style as this one but longer. I was a little unsure with this one though as I could see it was cropped and didn’t know how it would look on me and how I’d style it.
I am so happy I brought it, the colours are lovely and really go well together and it’s so so so soft and flattering. Definitely would recommend to buy this fleece!! Goes perfect with Lucy and yaks Delores wide leg jeans also!
So happy !!!
