  • Double-lined hood for added warmth with matching drawstring
  • Pouch pocket for extra carry
  • Double-needle cuffs and waistband for extra durability
  • Softer feel and reduced pilling
  • ​Imported

Reducing pilling is important because it prevents the sweatshirt fibers from breaking and rolling into tiny balls. Tightly woven fabrics have a smaller chance of pilling because of their structure and keeping tiny fibers taut. Softer textures from wool and fleece are more likely to break, even though they are more comfortable for apparel.

A Soft, Comfortable Hoodie by Gildan Apparel

High-quality fabrics can make a difference in preventing or reducing pilling. Gildan uses air-jet yarn in their hooded sweatshirt to circumvent this problem, as opposed to ring-spun options. The air-jet yarn has a two-layer structure. It has lower wickability and a higher flexibility.

The double-lined hood helps with customer comfort during colder weather. People in northern climates have to bundle up appropriately for the shorter days. Paired with the needle cuffs, you will help customers retain as much heat as possible during the most extreme temperature drops.
