What is a colored heather t-shirt?

In clothing, heather refers to interwoven/ interknitted yarns of mixed colors producing flecks of an alternate color. It is typically used to mix multiple shades of white or black with another color to produce a muted shade, but any two colors can be mixed, including bright colors. Heather colors are usually obtained by mixing a polyester yarn which is white or black in color with a colored yarn which is 100% cotton. Therefore it is a blend that is approximately 50% polyester & 50 % cotton hence the term 50/50 t-shirt.

Spectra USA offers 9 heather colors in a 52/48 cotton/poly blend. In addition they also offer a solid black & solid white blend. The white is particularly popular for sublimation or heath transfer printing. All the colors are an excellent substrate for screen-printing.
