Yes we can. Technical fabrics are those that wick sweat away from the body. They are predominantly made from synthetic fibers. Moisture-transfer technical fabrics tend to be lightweight and breathable. We love the texture they add to a quilt.
Yes. Too Cool T-shirt Quilts® can mix any type of washable material into a T-shirt quilt.
If another T-shirt quilt company will not use technical fabrics it is for two reasons. First, if they are using iron on backing on your T-shirts to stiffen the fabric, they can’t use it on your technical fabric because the heat of the iron will melt the fabric. The other reason for not using Technical fabrics is that they require expert sewing skills. Here at Too Cool T-shirt Quilts®, we are expert sewers and Technical fabrics are not an issue! Just one more reason to haveToo Cool T-shirt Quilts® make your quilt.
We have been experimenting with Tyvec-type race numbers. We have taken a race number and washed it about 30 time – and it handled the washing wonderfully! You are welcome to include your race numbers with your T-shirts. We can even sew them onto the bottom of the corresponding race T-shirt!
