Default New Hedgehog cage?

Hi everyone, im getting my new hedgehog on the 28th of April, im so excited to get him! His name is Stanley. He will be 7 weeks and 6 days old when i get him. I have done all my research about hedgehogs i think i can do, but when i was looking through the cage set-up ive noticed that most cages have fleece on the bottom of their cages? Does that mean you can have fleece down instead of bedding or do you put the bedding on top of the bedding? And when can i use the fleece? Im confused? Can someone please explain this to me? Thank you

Fleece is a commonly used bedding for hedgehog owners because hedgehogs seem to like it, it's soft, retains warmth, and for owners, very easy to clean, especially compared to comercial beddings like that those for hamster, guinea pigs, and the like. I don't know what you mean by fleece 'down', but fleece 'liners' are just a large piece of fleece that goes on the bottom of the cage. Some owners also use fleece strips for dig boxes, and entertainment or igloo stuffing (for their sleeping area). I really like liners because it takes mere minutes to switch out (to wash later), they last a lifetime, and you can personalize your hedgies cage, giving the cage itself personality and flair
Here are some topics that may explain things better....

Treben, my crazy three-legged cat (with Pinkie Pie)
Nekkhalen, my kinked tail, laid back cuddle-bug cat
