Our pigment-dyed sweaters come in a range of pastel colors, inspired by vintage sportswear. The unique dyeing process makes each garment slightly different from each other. We love the crewnecks at Global Blank, they have a little more of a polished look than a traditional hoodie, they wear like a sweatshirt but have more of a sweater look. This sweatshirt is perfect for chilling or throwing on with a pair of jeans. Wish this sweater had a hood? We also carry a pullover hoodie in the same color palette!

- The pigment-dyeing process gives each garment a unique character. Please allow for slight color variation in production and washing
- Care Instructions: Due to the nature of pigment dye, loose pigments may remain on the surface of the garments. We therefore strongly recommend washing these garments only with like-colored garments, as some of the pigment dyes may stain light or white colored garments in the wash cycle.
- Washing the garments in cold water will reduce the possibility of staining.
- Our "off-white" sweatshirts, fleece pants, and fleece shorts are not 100% Cotton. They are a 3-End Knit with 100% cotton Face Yarn, 100% Polyester Middle Yarn, and 80% Cotton/20% Poly back yarn. We chose this blend to achieve some stretch and an ultra-soft feel for our pigment dye that isn't found in 100% Cotton. Please do your own testing prior to bulk production. Pigment Dyes, Tie Dyes and other unique dyes/washes work best on these garments. The sewing thread on this "off-white" Garment is a polyester core cotton sheath thread. We use this to achieve the strength of polyester thread with the dye capabilities of Cotton thread. Although this thread takes dye better than Polyester thread, Dark Reactive dyes and Overdyes are not recommended because the thread doesn't take dye as well as 100% Cotton. Tie dyes, Pigment Dyes, Mineral Washes, dip dyes, etc. work best. The Poly Core/Cotton Sheathe thread is very strong so the decreased amount of fallout from broken threads when dyeing is a major benefit, this thread is very strong.
- The "off-white" Garment is the raw garment we use to garment dye. You can wear it as is, or dye it yourself. Keep in mind it will have a slightly larger fit because it has not been garment-dyed yet. After a garment dye or wash, the "off-white" garment will shrink to match the Pigment-Dyed spec.
