Shed Less

Technology

REDUCED SHEDDING, NOT PERFORMANCE.

<strong>Polartec® Shed Less is an EcoEngineering technique with the power to dramatically reduce fiber fragment shedding (frequently called “microfiber shedding”) during home laundering.</strong> This technology is a proprietary, multi-step process that combines yarn construction, knitting, chemistry, and manufacturing methods. Our first offering is a Shed Less Polartec 200 Series Fleece that retains all the warmth, comfort, breathability and durability of the original—but now sheds an average of 85% less fiber fragments than the baseline fabric.

POLARTEC® Shed Less Technology is the culmination of five years of study into how we identify and test fiber fragmentation levels in apparel.To get the most accurate testing, we’ve adopted the AATCC TM212-2021 test method for fiber fragment release during home laundering. When subjected to this rigorous test cycle (which includes detergent- something not all tests do), our Polartec 200 Series Shed Less Fleece lost an average of only 0.0073% of its original weight.<i> An incredibly small amount no matter how you shake it.</i>
