I think it depends on what the word "fluffy" is describing.

If it's related to material, then it's a large red fluffy sweater. It's made of something fluffy, but it could be wool, cotton, nylon, etc. It could also simply be referring the class of objects known as "fluffy sweaters".
I've got a large red fluffy sweater and a small green fluffy sweater.
In this case, dropping the "large", I could still say "a red fluffy sweater"!

If it's the shape, then it's a large fluffy red sweater.
I've got a large fluffy red sweater and a small furry green sweater.
If it's opinion, then it's a fluffy large red sweater. This use would indicate the speaker is emphasizing the fluffiness.
"Is this a nice large red sweater?"
"Well, it's definitely a fluffy large red sweater!"
Of course, rules are made to be broken, so the size-color order can be overridden if you're specifically referring to "large sweaters".
I've several large sweaters, but my green large sweater is being washed, so I'll wear my fluffy red large sweater.
