Supima® is a registered trademark,
it is a Cotton fiber knitted from American Pima Cotton produced either in Textas or California. Only 1% of Pima Cotton fibers are retained for the attribution of the Supima brand, which is a guarantee of exceptional quality !! Supima cotton is 45% more resistant than "classic" cotton and its extreme softness comes from the fact that the fibers are on average 35% longer than those used for conventional cotton !!
Interlock is one of the main Knit structures (Jersey and Rib are the 2 others !) often compared with Ponte Knit as the look and construction are really similar, just please note that like for all of the fabrics, there are different weights, and what you can sew with a fabric is determinated by this ! Interlock or Ponte is usually perfect for Dresses or Sweaters, but here with 120 gr/m² it is a tee-shirt weight !!
You know, KNIT is my absolut favorite
, (and this one I'm in Love with !!) so I'll allow myself some additional advices :-)) ... since it it is a fairly luxurious knit, I advise you to take special care with the finishes in order to have a timeless piece that will be an essential in your wardrobe
!! So do not hesitate to add Transparent and Rubber Elastic or Laminette in the shoulder seams
, an interlining
adapted to the knit in the neck seam and finally add a cleaning tape inside the neckline !
With all that you will have a ME MADE Tee, equivalent in quality and in look of Designer Tee-Shirts ;-)) !!
