Ring Spun Cotton T-Shirts

The process of ring-spinning cotton and other fibers began in the 18th century, grew in popularity during the industrial revolution, and is still widely-used today. Fabric made from ring-spun cotton is usually considered superior to cotton produced through other processes because the finished product is noticeably finer, softer, and more durable. Although t-shirts and other products made from ring-spun fabric are slightly more expensive, their long-lasting, softer-feeling characteristics make them a great option for high-quality apparel.

The first key difference in ring-spun fabric is the quality of cotton used. The process of ring-spinning requires longer cotton fiber lengths called "Long-Staple" Cotton, which offers a number of advantages over standard cotton. When cotton yarn is made from longer fibers, it doesn't require a high-twist count to keep it together, resulting in softer fabric without any loss in durability. Longer fibers also lead to softer fabric in general because there are less "ends" or irregularities in the yarn, making it softer and smoother to the touch.

Aside from the benefits of Long-Staple Cotton, ring-spun also creates a higher quality product by using more cotton than standard methods of spinning. Normally heavier fabric weight results in thicker T-Shirts, which are great for cooler climates, but can be uncomfortable in warmer temperatures. Compared to standard spinning methods, ring-spinning beats the cotton yarn into a tighter, finer thread that is both softer and more durable than standard yarn. As a result, ring-spun T-Shirts have the higher fabric weight of a heavyweight T-shirt but are less bulky and are cooler in warm climates.

Ring-spun products have grown in popularity recently, with many, if not most major name brands carrying a ring-spun option. Many retail outlets sell ring-spun T's with simple logos or designs at prices bordering on the ridiculous, but these higher-quality shirts don't have to break your budget.
