Comparing Fleece

When I bought a batch of fleece on-line last October, I happened to buy one yard of micro-fleece.  I wasn't sure about it, but how could I pass up those flamingos?  It seemed very thin when it arrived but I decided to use it anyway.

Months later, it seems to be holding up as well as the other fleece I from that batch.  The interesting thing is that the micro-fleece seems to slough off hay easier than anti-pill.  The hay doesn't cling like it does to regular fleece.

Of my older fleece, I'd say the anti-pill fleece has held up better than the blizzard fleece.  The few pieces of blizzard fleece have lost most of their fluff.  My anti-pill fleece has taken a beating and still looks pretty good.  I will be interested to see how well the micro-fleece looks after a few years.  All of them seem to wick moisture well.

If your guinea pigs have fleece bedding, what kind is it?  Anti-pill?  Blizzard?  Micro-fleece?  How well has it held up for you?

I tried to stick to anti-pill when possible because The All-knowing Internet had determined it best suited to piggy needs. But, to be honest, the patterns are often much cuter in blizzard fleece! I have a mix of both for both cage liners and accessories. The accessories seem to hold up pretty well but my cage liners, which endure a lot more abuse with the curry comb, do tend to get a bit more threadbare after a year of use. I've made a more conscious effort to use only anti-pill for the cage liners lately.

I also wouldn't have been able to resist the pink flamingos! So cute!
