Fine Jersey – 100% Cotton

Fine Jersey prints so easily – perfect for direct to garment, screen print, heat transfer and discharge printing. Tultex guarantees that all of our cotton products are never over-dyed, making them dischargeable.

100% Ring-spun cotton garments are produced by the yarn going through an innovative spinning process to thoroughly soften and strengthen each fiber. These soft-cotton shirts are less susceptible to dye migration and tend to dye more evenly. 100% cotton has a heavier weight and produces a deeper color than blends.

Poly-rich – 65% Poly/35% Cotton

Poly-rich refers to a fabric that contains more polyester than cotton. With a unique blend of 65% polyester and 35% ring-spun cotton, poly-rich has great drapability with a super-soft hand.

This fabrication manages to be sublimation friendly, without being 100% polyester. Since the polyester is the only part of the fabric that picks up the ink, it creates a distressed look when sublimated on. The polyester in the fabric adds durability, decreases weight, and adds to overall softness of the t-shirt. The poly-rich fabrication holds its shape better, creases less easily, and the blend is more breathable than 100% cotton.

Tri-blend –50% Poly/25% Cotton/25% Rayon

The softest of fabrications, tri-blend has seen an increase in popularity in recent years. Its blend of cotton, polyester, and rayon produce a fantastic hand with superior softness and durability. Tri-blends are the perfect canvas for vintage style designs.

Rayon is a breathable fabric that has high moisture absorbency. Blended into a tri-blend fabrication it can absorb sweat and wick it away from skin, making it an ideal fabrication for athletic wear or warmer climates. This fashion forward blend is a favorite amongst those who prefer a more drapable look.
