OK, so from a purely functional standpoint, what really is the difference between polar fleece and wool? Specifically, why would you buy a quarter sheet made of one material or the other (besides traditional look, your trainer tells you to get one or the other, etc.)?
I've seen a lot of threads up recently about wool sheets/coolers/quarter sheets, and am wondering about it. I'm in CA so pretty much no one uses anything wool, everything for warmth is polar fleece or a blanket with poly fill, other horse clothing is meant to keep the horse dry so it's nylon, polyester, etc.
