Fabric : Made of 100% cotton loop-wheeled sweatshirt fabric with a soft brushed interior backing. Mediumweight fleece cotton fabricated on loop-wheel looms. This item has a fashionable vintage feel and look. It combines durability and the natural softness for comfort. This sweatshirt comes raw/unwashed and will slightly shrink vertically after every wash and wear. Shrinkage is minimal.
Body : Tubular construction (No side seam construction). Made on vintage looms which knit the fabric in a seamless continuous tube known as loop-wheeling. The fabric is produced with minimal tension during knitting process and lack of seams means the garment will keep its shape through wear and washing. It combines durability and the natural softness for comfort. Vintage looms are special machines that are able to knit a perfect tube, but they can only knit one set diameter (size) per loom, so a loom for each size is required. This is why one hardly ever sees perfect tube construction in modern day garments.
Collar : Ribbed crew-neckband with double stitching.
