Fabric 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.
French terry is often used in sportswear, warmup wear and children’s clothes. The fabric’s athletic origins go back to 1920s Alabama, US, 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.
