I'm sure it is waterbased discharge ink if it is on dark shirts. After printing but prewash, discharge ink is kind of rough and not very soft (especially white), but after a wash, it feels much softer. I think that the roughness is probably the discharge base or activator powder. I think that it washes out in the wash, but the pigment remains. I'm not positive, but that is my educated guess.
edit: I've heard that some companies wash their shirts after printing to have a soft hand feel before the shirts reach the customer.
