@ACraigL@stolicat In order to get the striated color effect, the yarns (threads) have to be of different shades. The easier way to achieve this is to use a mix of fibers, as they’ll take on dyes at a different rate.
Nearly all heathers are of mixed fibers, usually cotton and polyester. Extra shading can be achieved with tri-blends, which are typically cotton, polyester, and rayon.
@ACraigL@narfcake So I got the Bounty Hunter long-sleeve T! But I would’ve preferred the zipped hoodie except they keep putting the design on the front, with the zipper running through it, and most people (my self included) don’t keep theirs zipped up to their chins so the design is ruined. Same issue with the “I go into the woods” shirt I also bought.
I’ve dropped a few notes about this in the comments at Woot, not sure if they’re being noticed.
@ACraigL@narfcake@stolicat (now replying to the zip hoodie comments)… I also was kind of bummed by the zips - I love that it’s being offered on Zip hoodies now, but I can’t see how the zip going right through the design is going to look right - even when zipped. I offered to rearrange my Tea design so it fits on either side but they haven’t really been enthusiastic about that.
Has anyone posted a zip hoodie that goes through the graphic? Curious to how that looks.
I just looked through the derby and there were some good ones like yours that you had decipher it to figure out the meaning (my favorite kind of t-shirts). But I just felt a lot of them lacked the creativity you put into making your shirts.
@star2236 For some of the elite artists, maybe, but I think most Woot artists have other venues and places where they design. I’m almost exclusive to Woot, and a little to Mediocritee.com , but personally, it’s a spare-time gig for me. My day job is fine, but I like to get creative and it’s a wonderful platform for that.
