Why are Blauer Turtlenecks better? Most consumer and uniform turtlenecks are made with 100% cotton or 50/50 polyester and cotton fibers. They stretch one way around the body only. The all cotton fabrics tend to fade after a few wash cycles and the poly cotton t-necks will exhibit pilling after a few days of wearing.
Blauer turtlenecks are made using an intimate blend of 90% cotton and 10% lycra. The fabric is no melt, no drip when exposed to heat or flames and has four way stretch so you can choose whether you want a loose or a compression fit. The 1 x 1 rib knit collars and cuffs are also blended cotton and lycra and will easily stretch to fit the largest heads. We also reinforce the seams and make them extra long with a slight ‘scoop’ in back so they always stay tucked.
