I'm going to be adopting a rabbit soon, and am curious if anyone has used fleece as bedding outside in the winter? His hutch is an 8x4, so it would not be very effective to cover that in bedding. Would fleece keep him warm enough?

ok thanks guys! Would fleece work in the summer/spring when its warmer? Also I heard that straw sometimes has mites is that true? Because i can get a bale of straw for like $12 at TSC

Wouldn't it save money if I could reuse fleece for a most of the year? Also do you have any experience with the hay at TSC? If I use it for bedding can i also use it as food or is it not high enough quality? thanks

I would be concerned that they will pee on it and in cold temps could freeze. I had fleece for my Guinea pigs indoors and cleaning it was awful. I would spray it out with the hose then wash it. Hair everywhere and it smelled like Guinea pigs even when clean.

I use Timothy bag hay often from tsc and Walmart. You may be able to find bales cheaper if you can dry store them. I currently dont have extra space for a couple bales but have used them in the past.
