I've seen it in fabric stores labeled as "sweatshirt fleece".  There's probably a more technical name for it, though.

I think it's just called "sweatshirt fleece".. sometimes "sweatshirt material" but I think that's even less technical.  There may be a more technical classification, but that's all I've ever seen it called.  When ageddert mentioned in This Thread that she had trouble finding it with patterns, I went all over the web looking for it (was driving me nuts because I'd recently found several cute patterns at Joann, but then their website had only one pattern at all.)

Thanks! I called my "local" hancocks (it's a 45 minute drive, but the closest fabric store) and asked if they had sweatsuit material, and they didn't know what I was talking about T_T. I'll call again and ask for sweatshirt fleece. Thanks!

Look for cotton interlock, jersey, or simply knit fabrics.
