I'm looking for additional sources of ultra cuddle type fleece fabric like these that are available at Jo-Ann:
http://www.joann.com/fabric/fleece-fabric/ultra-cuddle/
It's hard to tell by the photos, but this particular fleece is super duper soft and cuddly- much more than regular polar fleece or blizzard fleece.


The main things I'm looking for are:
1. Cute prints, but not featuring licensed characters or sports teams. Anything wintery or Christmas-y would be awesome! I'm making snuggies for my husband's octogenarian grandparents, so more prints that grandma would appreciate, not your 12 year old niece ;)
2. It absolutely must be soft and cuddly on the inside!!! I can't deal with lining these things. I have 6 snuggies to make before Thanksgiving, and then another 7 to do before Christmas.
3. Ships relatively quickly- I have all my fabric for 4 of the 6 that are due on Thanksgiving, so I'm looking for fabric first for the last 2 Thanksgiving ones, and then for 4 of the Christmas ones (I already have fabric for the other 3). So... I can't order the double sided minky from the south korean etsy seller if I need it for those 2 Thanksgiving snuggies.

I've searched so far:
Jo-ann's store and website- Definitely has what I want in terms of fabric texture, but I'm looking for more print options
Hancock website- can't tell what (if any) of their "novelty fleece" is soft inside, and none of the prints inspire me enough to do the 30 minute drive to find out in real life.
fabric.com- their double sided minky isn't doing it for me, and I'm nearly positive all the other minky prints aren't fluffy on the inside :{
google (there are a lot of sketchy feeling fleece selling websites out there- what's up with that?)
etsy- found a south korean seller with nice fabrics, but can't risk not getting it in time.
vogue fabrics, denver fabrics- only has prints in the ordinary polar fleece texture

I feel like that just can't be it- can it? Joann seems to have the market completely cornered on this type of fleece. Why is that?? Or am I just not looking in the right spots?

I bought some of the faux mohair sweater knit from Fabric.com. It is only fuzzy on one side, but both sides feel amazing. I desperately want to use it, but I also want to make ALL THE THINGS out of it.

With the minky I have found that it has to specifically mention "two sided". Go luck and let us know when you find it!

I have a blanket of the JOanns cuddle and it is really soft.
This fabric is a higher quality than the Joanns, and is nicer, but it's more expensive and only solids.Malden curly fleece
I have a piece of it and I like it so much I don't want to cut it.
This is the company that makes the cuddle, maybe you can call them for some sources, and ask them which ones are double sided.Shannon fabrics

I've been to that shannon fabrics site- they have some beautiful prints. I believe they are a supplier for fabric.com, and I actually ordered some from fabric.com that was labeled "cuddle" believing it would be similar to Jo-ann's ultra cuddle, but it wasn't fluffy on the wrong side, and will need a lining :(

I was at wal-mart last night and there are some beautiful throws in the right texture, but they are only 50"x60". I need a bare minimum 60"x72" for the body of the snuggie, and I don't want to have a seam down the middle.
I'm about ready to give up on this idea and just make do with the fabric that's available. It's frustrating, though. I've been spoiled by sewing giving me more fabric options than I know what to do with, and did not expect this particular fabric to have so few choices.

Sometimes places like Walmart has it. In fact when I was in Walmart the other day, they had a few bolts for I think $7.95 yard, mostly solid, but even stranger when I walked the isles there, they had lots of precut large rectangular throws of it, that were also 60 inches wide, and more like two yards long each, and if you just cut those up, (to make something else of them, even a shirt or such) they were priced and would end up being way cheaper to use, than buying it on a bolt, by the yard.

They had lots of the Xmas prints on those too, and some with double faced fabric even. Do you have someplace close like that, you can even drive to, or even maybe the linen department of a Ross or Marshalls store near you that might have some throws like that? Sometimes fabric is just in whatever you find it in too.

Pretty sure that's Fabric.com (since they're owned by Amazon).
