Sweat fabrics have become very popular for making streetwear and loungewear, because it's soft, has good isolation properties and a comfortable stretch. The fabric is suitcase-proof, easy washable and cheaper than a wool. Sweat is a knitted fabric made with two or three yarnsystems and different yarncounts. The base is a fine, tightly twisted yarn, you will see this mainly on the front side. The back has a more fluffy, soft twisted thicker yarn that can be brushed. In some fabrics there is also a very thin third yarn to add some extra 'body' and stability to the construction.
We offer sweats with a weight of 260 to 350 gr/m2, in unbrushed and brushed quality. All the sweats from 100% organic cotton are GOTS certified. Fabrics carrying the GOTS label represent the ultimate in ecological and sustainable production. The certification assures you that the cotton from which these fabrics were made, was grown organically, without using insecticides or herbicides. In addition, GOTS is your assurance that the most ecological and socially responsible methods have been used throughout the entire production process. This means amongst other things:
Some of these fabrics are piece-dyed, some are yarn-dyed or fiber-dyed. Do you want your own colours? Piece-dying is possible from 250 meters. The origin of the 100% organic cotton fabrics is Turkey, where we have been working with a knitting mill for more than ten years.
