This is another series of questions we get asked very often. All our cotton fabric are made of fully combed cotton. Just that you know, there are also semi-combed fabric available. But what does it mean and does it makes a difference in your buying decision?
It is actually a very simple question with a very simple answer.
Combing is a process by which the short fibers of a yarn are removed and the remaining longer fibers are arranged in parallel order for a high quality yarn with excellent strength, fineness and uniformity.
The combs used have long metal teeth, and only barely resemble the comb used on hair.
However, they are used in a similar fashion with one comb holding the fiber while the other is moved through the cotton fibers.
Combed cotton is used for quality fabric with high thread counts like apparel, linens and other items make with fine cotton.
When it comes to corporate t-shirts, the combed cotton makes a softer and more durable fiber. It also provides for a more uniform construction and look in the fabric. Yes, combed cotton polo shirts are slightly more expensive, but they do provide a great value in return.
A combed cotton t-shirt makes for a great choice when considering options for your next corporate t-shirts. And now you know why.
