How to judge the quality of T-shirts when customizing it

The three core parameters of T-shirt fabric: composition, weight, and counts

1. Composition:

Combed cotton: Combed cotton is a type of cotton yarn that is finely combed (i.e. filtered). The surface after manufacturing is very fine, with a uniform  thickness, good moisture absorption, and good breathability. But pure cotton is a bit prone to wrinkles, and it would be better if it could be blended with polyester fibers.

Mercerized cotton: Made from cotton as raw material, it is finely spun into high woven yarn, which is then processed through special processes such as  singeing and mercerization. It has a bright color, a smooth hand feel, a good hanging feeling, and is not prone to pilling and wrinkling.

Hemp: It is a type of plant fiber that is cool to wear, has good moisture absorption, does not fit snugly after sweating, and has good heat resistance.

Polyester : It is a Synthetic fiber made from polyester polycondensation of organic dicarboxylic acid and Diol by spinning, with high strength and elasticity, wrinkle resistance, and no ironing.

2. Weight:

The “gram weight” of textiles refers to the number of gram weight units as the measurement standard under a standard Unit of measurement. For example, the weight of 1 square meter of knitted fabric is 200 grams, expressed as: 200g/m ². It is a unit of weight. 

The heavier the weight, the thicker the clothes. The weight of T-shirt fabric is generally between 160 and 220 grams. If it is too thin, it will be very transparent, and if it is too thick, it will be stuffy. Generally, in summer, the weight of short sleeved T-shirt fabric is between 180g and 200g, which is more suitable. The weight of a sweater is generally between 240 and 340 grams.

3. Counts:

The counts is an important indicator of the quality of T-shirt fabric. It’s easy to understand, but it actually describes the thickness of the yarn count. The larger the count, the finer the yarn, and the smoother the texture of the fabric. 40-60 yarns, mainly used for high-end knitted clothing. 19-29 yarns, mainly used for general knitted clothing; Yarn of 18 or less, mainly used for thick fabrics or pile up cotton fabrics.
