A classic fleece from Patagonia, modernised by its use of a ground-breaking blend of eco-friendly recycled fabrics. The Woolyester Fleece brings together heritage design and innovation, with its construction of recycled wool and polyester. The recycled wool is colour-blended to completely eliminate the dyeing process.
Cosy and wearable, this fleece is perfect for everyday use and layering in the winter. Featuring a full-front zip for easy heat control, as well as ribbed-knit cuffs and hem. The collar can also stand up to keep the chill off your neck, if need be.
Draws on the heritage style with half-moon pockets and a relaxed fit.
