Round 9 Fabric Descriptions

Below is an overview of the fabric bases available for the Round 9 Preorder. Please note these fabrics are part of a preorder, the fabric is not in stock. After the close of the preorder (May 30th), the TAT time will begin. No part of your order will ship until all of your ordered fabrics have arrived. If you want part of your order faster, you must place two orders. 

Turnaround Time:
  • 4-6 weeks: AK 245, AK 265, ABP, Swim and Boardshort
  • 6-8 weeks: Drirelease

This video discusses why I print some of the fabrics on the cross grain:



This video reviews all of the different fabric bases: 

 

Athletic Knit (AK) 265 (cross grain):
📝AK 265 is smooth on both sides, and has a cold hand. This fabric is printed on the cross grain. 
♻️ 16.7 recycled plastic bottles per yard
📓 83% REPREVE® polyester; 17% Spandex
⚖️ 265 gsm
🏃‍♀️ Moisture Wicking treatment added
↔️ 58" wide
🙆‍♀️ 75%, 4-way stretch
🌞 UPF 50+
⭐ This fabric is milled and printed in China
Recommended Uses: Leggings, sports bras, shorts, dresses, hoodies, jackets and joggers.


Athletic Brushed Poly (cross grain):
📝ABP is brushed on both sides, and has a warm hand. This fabric is printed on the cross grain. 
♻️ 16.7 recycled plastic bottles per yard
📓 83% REPREVE® polyester; 17% Spandex
⚖️ 255 gsm
↔️ 58" wide
🙆‍♀️ 70%, 4-way stretch

⭐ This fabric is milled and printed in China
Recommended Uses: Leggings, sports bras, shorts, dresses, hoodies, jackets and joggers. Keep in mind the ABP is brushed and can feel warm. In hot climates, I recommend AK 265 instead of ABP for work out attire. The brushing also gives it less drape. For dresses, I would stick with body con or circle skirts and not gathers. 


US Athletic Knit (AK) 245 (cross grain)
📝AK 245 is smooth on both sides, and has a cold hand. This fabric is printed on the cross grain. 
🇺🇸 Milled and Printed in the US
♻️ Bottles Recycled: TBD
🏃‍♀️ Moisture Wicking
📓 81% Repreve polyester; 19% Spandex
⚖️ 245 gsm
↔️ Approximately 57" wide
🙆‍♀️65% horizontal and 75% vertical, 4-way stretch
Recommended Uses: AK 245 is lighter than AK 265, it also has slightly less recovery and compression. I would still recommend it for leggings, sports bras, shorts. It has more drape than the AK 265, so would work well for all kinds of dresses. 


DriRelease (grainline):
❗ Please note the drirelease coloring is not as saturated as the other fabric bases. It has a more muted, vintage look. Please see pictures. 
📝Drirelease is a light weight fabric. It is soft, has good drape and not clingy. This fabric is printed on the grain line. 
♻️Bottles Recycled: TBD
📓 82% recycled polyester; 11% Tencel; 7% Elastine
⚖️ 215 gsm
↔️ 60" wide
🙆‍♀️ 40% horizontal stretch and 35% vertical stretch
⭐ This fabric is milled and printed in China
Recommended Uses: Tshirts, dresses, shorts, skirts, and lounge pants. 


Swim (grainline):
📝Swim is smooth on both sides, and has a cold hand. Unlike typical swim, this fabric is not slippery. This fabric is printed on the grainline.  This fabric is printed directly onto the fabric (instead of on to paper and heated onto the fabric like my polyester bases). Printing directly onto the fabric creates more saturated and vibrant coloring. As a result the colors on my nylon swim can be different than the colors on the other polyester bases.
♻️ Recycled Nylon can not be made from plastic bottles. Repreve recycled nylon is made from post-industrial waste from nylon carpet producers and nylon fiber producers.

Recommend Uses: Swimwear, rash guards, athletic shorts, dresses and workout tops.
