material French terry

French terry is a knitted jersey characterised by its two different surfaces – the one commonly used as the front has a flat and smooth texture and the side facing the body features a structure of uncut loops. The fabric’s athletic origins go back to 1920s Alabama, when a manufacturer of women’s and children’s underwear began sewing football shirts for a local college team. Using the cotton jersey underwear material to outfit the players, the factory created what ultimately became the classic sweatshirt.

french terry

French terry is a stretchy, knitted-jersey fabric characterised by its two different surfaces. The one commonly used as the front has a flat and smooth texture and the side facing the body features a structure of uncut loops. Made of cotton, the fabric is soft and airy and like, terry cloth, which is a woven fabric with loops on both sides, it is highly moisture-absorbent. The longer the loops, the more moisture can be absorbed.
