Sweatshirts have come a long way, and while they were once considered just gym wear, carrying you to dinner or even the workplace is now more than appropriate. There are a few distinct styles of sweatshirt cloth you can find while picking yours. Knowing the difference between each one and what makes them exceptional will help you pick the fabric that best fits you and your style.

The loopback cotton delivers the same purpose as the loops you find on your towel: to absorb moisture such as sweat. Whilst this is perfect for the gym, terry sweatshirts can be sharp enough to wear to the office or dinner.

This name for the fabric, fleece back is perhaps the most self-explanatory one. The underside has a smooth and fleecy feel to it in fleece-back fabrics that is developed by brushing the underside with sandpaper or wire brushes. This gives the cloth a velvety feel and causes your sweatshirt to have that extra cosy look.
