This makes the liner thicker, velvety to the touch and more absorbent. The Plush Anti-Pill Fleece is velvety for little feet reducing bumblefoot.

Fleece will be warmer. It traps more air forming a thicker insulating layer. Cotton also doesn't wick very well. Edit: I'm a natural fiber snob and better than 90% of my wardrobe is 100% cotton, but for some things, petrochemicals are just better.

Which is better fleece or flannel?

If your question is which is warmer, fleece or flannel: the answer isn't straightforward. Fleece may be considered warmer in that it traps heat very well, but it won't regulate your temperature, so you may become too hot. Flannel, however, will keep you cozy while still allowing excess heat to escape.

Is fleece warm enough for winter?

Fleece: Fleece is as warm as wool but it is lighter weight and a lot less bulky. I think it is a solid option for a mid layer. It also has the ability to hold in warmth even if it gets damp. A fleece jacket is also versatile because it can be worn as an outer layer on a warmer day or a mid layer on a cold day.
