A Lightweight Apparel Fabric in Every Category

Jan 11, 2024 | News

Sometimes, apparel manufacturers have to look at lightweight options to keep their priorities on target. They may not have a specific fabric in mind, but more of a category they’re considering. At TVF, our Sales Consultants meet you on your level to achieve your goals to keep your business churning and we offer lightweight apparel fabrics in a range of categories – including circular knit, mesh, stretch, woven, and fleece – to do so.

One of our most in-demand circular knit apparel fabrics is Colorado Light PolyLux Jersey. This 4.9 oz. spun polyester jersey is made with our unique PolyLux yarn that makes it look and feel like cotton while performing like polyester – even after dye sublimation transfer paper (dye sub) printing.

TVF’s 4.4 oz. 92/8 Polyester Spandex Sports Mesh just exudes athleticism. Whether used for sports jerseys (including softball, volleyball, track and field, and more) or cycling tops that call for high performance and the airflow of mesh, 4.4 oz. 92/8 Polyester Spandex Sports Mesh is dye sub printable for team names, logos, school names, or sponsors.

In the stretch category, our 5 oz. 96/4 Polyester Microfiber Spandex Woven features four-way stretch, excellent stretch recovery, and woven construction to help with pilling and snagging resistance. Its performance and athleisure uses cover the spectrum from board shorts and surf apparel to windbreakers and more.

Need a woven polyester with a classically-smooth feel and chic look? The 3.4 oz. Polyester Challis from TVF is great for Hawaiian shirts, but also blouses and dresses, scarves and bandanas, and more on the apparel side, and window sheers and treatments, special event accents and decorations, and more on the home décor side.

For cozy hoodies, sweatshirts, jackets, and even athleisurewear, there’s nothing like fleece. A go-to for its combination of warmth, breathability, hand, and printability, our 6.2 oz. Montana Polyester Fleece features an advanced moisture management finish and is Made in USA.
