Whoa, whats this shirt made of, its so soft!?!
Not all fabrics are made equal! We want you to know exactly what to expect when ordering your apparel so we have compiled a list from several sources to help you better understand what it means if that hoodie you are eye balling says sueded! Heathered fabrics can change the percentages of materials as well as certain brands, these percentages are the typical amounts in these styles of apparel.
TriBlends-A blend of three types of yarn (50% polyester, 25% cotton, and 25% rayon), triblends boast the comfort of cotton, durability of polyester, and the luxurious drape of rayon, which was initially created as a substitute for silk.
Today, triblend fabrics are becoming more and more popular. Super-soft and perfectly relaxed, triblend tees have become a blogger staple, camera-ready favorite, and a street style essential. Oh, and did we mention they’re perfect for working out too since they’re ultra-breathable? Win!
Heather CVC-Heather CVC garments are made up of 52% combed and ring-spun cotton and 48% polyester. let’s define what CVC means. It’s an acronym for Chief Value Cotton, which refers to a cotton and polyester blend with a heavier percentage of cotton. The Heather CVCs are a blend of 52% combed and ring-spun cotton and 48% poly. They are 30 single and 4.2 oz, which makes it a bit heavier without losing the softness we all want!
100% Combed and Ring Spun Cotton-What is 100% combed and ring-spun. That means the raw cotton is literally combed through to remove impurities and then it’s ring-spun to create a long, nice strand of yarn. That yarn is turned into our fabric, which has a super tight weave and smooth consistency.
Flowy- You’ve probably seen the word flowy in the description of many items, but what exactly does that mean? The Flowy collections are made up of a poly-viscose fabric, which is 65% polyester and 35% viscose, 30 single and 3.7 oz. What’s unique about this material is that is has an extremely soft, silky hand that feels like an elevated fabric that you find in top retail stores. The Flowy styles also drape away from the body, giving it that slightly oversized fit. That means, no matter what shape or size you are, you can find a flowy piece that works for you!
Slub- At one time, slub yarn was considered defective yarn that would (sadly) end up on the cutting room floor. Now, it’s responsible for one of the most popular fabrications. This unique texture is made up of 50% polyester, 37.5% combed and ring-spun cotton and 12.5% rayon. It’s knit in a certain way to give a really tonal texture. The fabric appears to have a slightly sheer appearance and uneven surface which creates a vintage, worn look.
Marbled- Marbled is another amazing textured fabric that offers great dimension. It’s made from 91% polyester, 9% combed and ring-spun cotton. It has a really soft hand and cool texture. Generally made with 2 or more colors it has a look that cannot be found anywhere else!
Sueded- For a vintage style t-shirt that is uniquely soft and velvety to the touch, the Premium sueded apparel is a one of a kind and super soft. Sueded cotton/poly is brushed which makes it a thicker more plush fabric. Made out of 60/40 combed ringspun cotton/poly sueded.
