Sweat fabrics have become very popular for making streetwear and loungewear, because they are soft, have good isolation properties and a comfortable stretch. 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 both unbrushed and brushed sweatshirting fabrics in nice colours and in weights between 260 gr/m2 and 410 gr/m2. A total of seven different qualities.
