This may be a very amature question, but I am amature so I don't feel entirely stupid asking. Why do American and Alternative only make tri-blend shirts(cotton/poly/rayon) in athletic grey? Can they be found in other colors?
Good question! I'm not sure why this is. I've noticed that some other brands always include a bit of poly content in their "ash/heather" gray t-shirts. I wonder if this has to do with the ash/heather color (maybe it requires a blend to make it work/feel/look right)?
A yarn that is spun using pre-dyed fibers. These fibers are blended together to give a particular look. (For example, black and white may be blended together to create a grey heathered yarn.) The term, heather, may also be used to describe the fabric made from heathered yarns."
If they are blending white cotton and black poly to get heather, maybe that's why heathers always have poly in them.
