Because fabrics made with drirelease technology are not treated with chemicals of any kind, performance is permanent. It will not “wash out” over time.
The mix of fibres and the way our drirelease is woven make for a super soft, cotton like feel. To further avoid the risk of chafing we minimise the use of panels in the construction of our tops and use a flat over lock stitch on all internal seams.
We use a piqué construction on all our short sleeved tops and vests - Cambrian,Cambrian Striped, Sidmouth, Marlborough and Lancaster.
Piqué is a particular way of weaving, developed originally in the Lancashire cotton industry, which gives our tops a pleasing old school look. It has functional benefits too as piqué cloth is naturally well ventilated and holds up well wash after wash.
