Fashion Trends Part 2

Part 2 of 5 about fashion trends in the screenprinting world. Hanes reports increasing interest in the soft fabrics of their Nano collection, whether t-shirts or hoodies. This is true of both unisex and women’s shirts. Thinner fabrics are gaining traction, and their lightweight Nano hoodie has particularly been a favorite. Folks seem to know ringspun cotton when they find it now, and consumers really want that ringspun softness.

Hanes "Cool Dri" fabrics are part of the trend in the industry of technical fabrics that have wicking and other qualities.
