Priced at the higher end of the market, I produce bespoke garments made with high quality fleece. These fleeces are made to last years whatever your dog gets up to !
What size do I need?
We do not have a ‘one size fits several’ policy.
All the garments are individually made to measure and are not pre-cut off the peg items.
If I have not measured your dog at a show, then I use measurements given by you.
When measuring your dog, please make sure they are standing straight, facing forwards and not hunching their back.
The measurements should be taken SNUG to the dog's body with no extra space – not tight but you should not be able to slip any fingers under the tape measure.
Please measure your dog at least twice to make sure you have the correct measurements.
If a coat does not fit due to the wrong measurements being taken, you will be charged for its alteration
Which coat is best for my dog?
All coats are individually made to measure so can be made to fit any breed, any shape or size can be accommodated – even our brave three-legged companions can have one fitted for them.
We do not have a ‘one size fits many’ sizing policy – all coats are bespoke.
Please see the Products page for detailed descriptions
Can you make a coat to fit my dog?
Forest Fleece products are handmade individually to fit YOUR dog
All garments are bespoke and hand-made and are therefore made to measure to fit your dog whatever their shape or size.
These are not stock items, not pre-cut and not made outside the UK, they are all made by me. This enables Forest Fleece to make products for all breeds and crosses of dogs, no matter what their shape or size.
We do not have a ‘sizing chart’ like other products – one size does not fit many!
You will need to measure your dog carefully – please see our How to Measure you Dog webpage
Most styles can also be embroidered with names, or logos
What type of fleece do you use?
The fabric we use is woven, high performance polyester fleece. It is approximately 420 grams per linear metre, Antipil which does not bobble and is of the same grade and qualities found in advanced technical out-door wear.
The Fleece is a soft, lightweight, water repellent, warm and comfortable fabric. It is hydrophobic, holding less than 1% of its weight in water, it retains much of its insulating powers even when wet, and it is highly breathable. It makes an ideal outerwear fabric because it actively wicks moisture away from the body. It is a high performance product that offers warmth and is soft to the touch. Being non-absorbent, your dog will not have to sit in a damp coat.
It is also silent - no rustling or restrictive hard coats to upset a sensitive dog.
All of our fleece wear is machine washable on a low heat cycle (30 degrees). Washing will completely freshen up the garment as fleece does not absorb and store smells. It can be tumble dried (on a low heat setting) and does not shrink, stretch or fade.
Fleece has the best wicking properties of all materials and this action continually blocks rain while still breathing away excess moisture (and heat). It is far warmer and much more durable than cotton (including thermal) and wool.
Wash on a low heat cycle (30 degrees) – this will not affect its properties in any way.
Is the fleece you use waterproof?
It is water-repellent and therefore shower-proof. The fabric is woven, high performance polyester fleece. It is of the same grade and qualities found in advanced technical out-door wear.
Cuddle Fleece has different properties and is not
