Nothing speaks to the universality of hooded sweatshirt design like the Gildan 18500 Heavy Blend™ Hoodie. It has all the classic design elements that appeal to hoodie wearers: color-matched drawstrings, double-lined hood for extra warmth and protection, a large blank surface for customization, vibrant and distinct color selections, and the ample kangaroo front pouch pocket for warming hands and carrying items. Dense, huggable Heavy Blend™ fabric keeps “pilling” to a minimum, and the 50/50 poly/cotton air jet yarn has been preshrunk for accurate sizing. 1x1 spandex ribbed cuffs and waistband keep drafts out at the openings and give you the added stretch you need when you take your hoodie off and on. Double-needle stitching at the collar, sleeve openings, shoulder, waistband and cuffs adds extra durability throughout the garment. This classic fit hoodie has a satin tag and has been quarter-turned to eliminate center crease.

Combing is an operation that rakes impurities from the cotton fibers, allowing the natural, breathable softness of the downy plant to prevail while leaving the surface ultra-smooth and color-consistent through the dyeing process. Ring spun cotton is created by twisting the yarn, so that tiny tufts of fiber stand up in a dull knap. This creates exceptional softness and just enough textural contrast to make the bold designs of applied artwork appear sharper and encourages adhesion. Garment-specific elements, like shoulder and neck taping, double-needle stitching at points of wear, and ribbed or welt cuffs and collars are implemented throughout varying products to ensure you are receiving the highest grade construction possible.<br /><br />Gildan is committed to ongoing, genuine accountability, so you can wear their clothes knowing they have been responsibly sourced and manufactured, in addition to the quality design. This trustworthy brand recognition and has earned Gildan the appreciation of professionals and consumers alike. Apparel.com is proud to provide you with blank Gildan shirts, sweatpants, stadium blankets, and hoodies ready to receive your work.
