This cotton jersey consists of 94% cotton and 6% elastomer. Cotton fibres come from the cotton plant, and are spun into yarn. In this case this cotton yarn is knitted, resulting in a stretch fabric.
Cotton jersey is sturdy, breathing, stretch, and soft, making it very comfortable to wear. That’s why this fabric is often used for sports and casual wear. Due to the elastomer the fabric keeps its shape well.
In order to give your garment a long life, it’s important to pay attention to the washing process: To start with, only wash clothing when it’s dirty. Always sort your laundry by type of fabric and colour. Use the right laundry detergent and the right amount. Don’t stuff your machine with too much laundry. Turn your clothes inside out (also for ironing). Avoid the tumble-drier if possible, it uses a lot of energy and is generally not good for you clothes.
Cotton jersey is easy to maintain. You can wash it on maximum 40° on a normal program, and you can dry it in the tumble-drier.
