I have several heavy-weight sweatshirt-like cotton pullovers. These are the types of pull-overs found in many sports specialty shops and at resorts (often with logos or resort names embroidered or screened on them). This cotton is woven -- one side is like a very heavy (but soft) twill, the other side is a heavy cotton fleece -- not a knit or stretchy fabric.

I've yet to find a name for this fabric. Anyway, does anyone know a name or a source for this fabric?

Thanks, Pat

I believe sweatshirt fleece is the term used by fabric stores to describing what you're looking for. Fabric.com has quite a selection of solids and prints. The Fabric Fairy has some too, and her pictures show both the smooth and fleece side.

Are you talking about French Terry? I've seen pullovers made with it. It's actually a knit but isn't stretchy. It has a smooth side and a fleecy side.

I think I need to see an example of these pullovers, because I'm having trouble picturing what you mean.

DH has a team baseball jersey pullover thing that's like a windbreaker material on the outside, and a mesh on the inside... that's the closest example I can think of, but it doesn't really sound like your description.
