Core Spun Lycra® yarns are the secret of our popular stretch fabrics. We take polyester and cotton fibers and wrap them around a core of Lycra® to create a fabric with all the coolness of cotton, the durability of polyester and hidden stretch for comfort. The result is a line of clothing that will keep up with you no matter where your adventures may take you.


Mid-Weight Twill

Durable polyester and breathable cotton fibers are spun around a core of Lycra®, creating our signature Stretch Twill. With a NEW  fabric content of 62 Polyester / 35 Cotton / 3 Spandex and weighing 7.5oz per sq. yard, this durable fabric combines the comfort of cotton, the wrinkle-resistance of polyester and the mobility of Lycra®.
