Getting Wrinkles out of Fleece...

Hello, I did a quick search and didn't see any threads started on this topic, but I was wondering what can be done to get wrinkles of fleece. I am working with blizzard fleece, and the way the store rolled it up it is just full of wrinkles. I am afraid to iron it, since I'm worried the fleece might melt. I wonder if just washing it will help to get the creases and wrinkles out?

Thank you in advance for any tips or suggestions.

Have you tried throwing it in the dryer on delicate? and yes it WILL melt, I made the coolest weird purple plasticy thing accidently ironing some once

You can iron it on very low, only a scalding iron will melt it. You could also just steam it out. Throwing it in the dryer with a damp towel or washcloth would probably be the easiest though

I've ironed fleece before. I use a lower setting and usually put a pressing cloth between the iron and the fleece. A pressing cloth can be your best friend when you are worried you might melt your fabric or get gunk on it if your iron is funky like mine.

Thank you everyone for the replies... I am going to try to get them out with my iron on low, and see if that works.
