Heavyweight Fleece Fabric

Fabric Content: 100% cotton
Weight: Heavyweight
Product Care: Wash with like colors, no bleach, low dryer

It starts with the cotton itself- we use long fiber cotton that holds up during the yarning and knitting process with minimal breakage.

The fleece is three end fleece- the fabric is knit with a loop, a face and a tie yarn. Most fleeces are two end, without the tie yarn, which reduces durability. The three end knitting process was nearly extinct when our partners brought the machine out of a dusty corner. Getting it up and running was a labor of love, but the unique toughness of this fabric is a direct result.

French Terry Fabric

Fabric Content: 100% Cotton
Weight: Midweight
Product Care: Wash with like colors, no bleach, low dryer

French terry fabrics are defined by a looped interior face.

This specific french terry was knit at a slower pace, so the loops are exactly uniform. Our head designer credits this “symphonic” organization of the loops for its unique durability and quality. The loops also provide a breathable texture ideal for midweight products.

Supima Modal Fabric

Fabric Content: 50% Supima cotton, 50% Micro Modal
Weight: Midweight
Product Care: Wash with like colors, no bleach, low dryer

We blended the highest quality Supima cotton fabric with modal fiber to make a luxurious, low maintenance fabric for our women’s midweight sweatshirt series.

Supima cotton is the American strain of Pima cotton. Pima cotton has long fibers and is very resilient. It takes dye well allowing for deep, saturated colorways. The smooth handfeel and silky finish come from modal fiber which comes from Beech trees.

Rugby Jersey Fabric

Fabric Content: 99% cotton, 1% polyester
Weight: Lightweight
Product Care: Wash with like colors, no bleach, low dryer

Very heavyweight for a jersey, we picked this fabric for its versatility. It works really well for a heavyweight t-shirt or in our case a light, layerable sweatshirt. The 1% black poly gives the fabric subtle visual complexity and depth when it blends with the dyed cotton.
