412’s new private-label blank sweatshirt program...built from scratch 🔨✂️
🇨🇦 Crafted in Canada, long known as producers of the finest fleece fabrics and garments in the world.
Starting with premium ring spun cotton and polyester yarn, we knit a fleece which is constructed on a machine called a 3 end fleece circular knitting machine. The typical mentality of fleece production, especially in North America, is to produce as much as possible in as little time as possible. Not here. To achieve this quality, machines are run at a speed that is much lower than you’d normally find in most mills, knitting only enough fabric to make about 10-15 hoodies in an hour.
Once a batch of 16 rolls is knitted, (about 24 hours production time), it is sent to their dye facility where the fabric is dyed, brushed, washed and tumble dried to reduce shrinkage to 2% or less.
The fabric is spread out and prepared for cutting. The body panels are cut in a cross grain fashion to further reduce the effects of shrinkage and sewn on flat seam sewing machines to produce not only a look that is sporty, but also clean and free of excess fabric on the insides of the seams. Side panels made of two layers of 1x1 rib are sewn on to add stretch, for freedom of movement and comfort. Bar tacks are added to all the stress points on each garment to reinforce those areas and prevent them from tearing.
The fit: not boxy or over-sized, a perfect modern take on a classic style. You’ll feel the difference. 350GSM/10.5oz #412Fleece
