Was the fleece actually missing bits that had been eaten? I've had mice fleece but I've never seen them attempt to actually ingest any. Are they pooping normally? How old are they?

There are a few things that could cause a mouse to have a bloated stomach and it might be something easily treated like worms. If you're concerned maybe have a vet look at them?

Are they pooping normally? As that would be my biggest concern if they have eaten something they shouldn't. If they aren't pooping, we could be talking about an intestinal blockage of some kind. You didn't say if there is fleece actually missing or what exactly makes you think they ate fleece?

Ideally a vet would take a look at them as unfortunately no one on the forum that I know of is a vet, and even if they were it's really impossible to tell what if anything's wrong without doing a proper examination Worry If they're pooping normally and they appear to be fine, then it's possible they may have an internal parasite. Some pet stores sell small animal spot-ons which will deal with some external and internal parasites, but it's much better if you can get a vet to actually give a diagnosis.
