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.

A triangle of rib fabric is inserted underneath the front and back crew neck collar. The technical name is the V-gusset stitching or V-Stitch or V-Insert.

This piece made more elastic the neckline and recovering the form again. Lock stitch throughout.
