We use a medium-weight thermal poly-blend Royal Apparel hoodie for this design, made sustainably, and sweatshop-free, in the USA. This thin but dense waffle-textured fabric is perfect for layering and provides great insulation without adding a ton of bulk. This blend is a middle ground between Tri-Blend and 100% Cotton—blending the two fabrics (50% Polyester and 50% Ring-Spun Cotton) increases strength, decreases weight, and adds softness and breathability.
Our hoodies are silk-screened by skilled craftsmen in Portland, Oregon, at a shop known for their work with water-based and discharge inks, and for the first time here, high solids acrylic water base ink (HSA). Unlike plastisol inks which place a layer of plastic-like ink on the surface, these special inks actually dye the fibers of the fabric. This leaves a printed area that is light and soft to the touch that won’t crack and disintegrate from wear and washing. When used on a poly-blend fabric (such as this hoodie), the discharge agent in the ink bleaches the original dye from the organic fabric; this creates a slight heathered effect, giving parts of the print a broken-in or vintage feel.
