Gildan®, anvil® and Comfort Colors® make every effort to ensure that colors are consistent across every fabric. Due to the nature of the various knit constructions and the various reflective properties of our range of fibers, there is a possibility that a shade may look slightly different when produced in a 50% cotton/50% polyester fabric blend as opposed to a 100% cotton garment. Flat knit constructions such a basic jersey knit also may present a slightly different shade of a color than raised knits like fleece or double pique fabric. It is always recommended to obtain a sample of the garment in question to properly assess the exact color.

Yes, our products, as all knit products, shrink. Knit fabrics inherently shrink back to the knit density they emerged from the knitting machine with. Our brands target very specific shrinkage numbers, typically less than 4% in width, 6% in length of any 100% cotton fabrics.
The manufacturing process takes place in several locations including the USA, Dominican Republic, Nicaragua and Bangladesh. For more information visit www.genuinegildan.com
Certain colors such as these require a combination of natural colored fibers and pre-dyed fibers to achieve the heathered look, usually achieved by adding black dyed polyester fiber with the cotton fiber. In most cases the percentage of black fiber is easily identified. In other instances for shades like Safety Green, we have to incorporate 50% polyester into the blend to ensure the durability and color fastness which only polyester dyes and achieve.

All knit fabrics are subject to variation of the end fabric weight due the very nature of the knitting and fabric handling process. There is an acceptable quality standard of +/- 4% with a target performance tolerance of +/-2%. In real terms, this means that if we advertise a fabric weight at 6.0oz/yard2 the actual range would be between 5.88 and 6.12 oz/yard2.
Direct/Reactive colors are fully saturated, not washed out and the dye penetrates the garment. Pigment colors are weathered/washed out; dye does not penetrate garment and the label is dyed as well.
