spun in Manchester

Raw Bale to Yarn

200kg bales of cleaned, raw Supima cotton fibres from the USA arrive at English Fine Cottons in Manchester ready to be transformed into yarn.

The whole process of transforming the raw cotton into a workable yarn is fully automated. It’s a marvel to behold.

Sewn to our exclusive pattern

The finished yarn only travels as far south as Leicestershire to be knitted into a mid weight 320gsm jersey, before returning to Manchester to be sewn into sweatshirts.

Raglan sleeves for the classic sporting shoulders look.

Lock stitched for a clean, unfussy finish.

Ribbed side panels to match the neck and cuffs.

Transparency & Traceability

The Raglan Sweatshirt is made from 100% Supima Cotton grown in California by J G Boswell.

Each bale of cotton is fully traceable right back to the date, time and area of the field it was harvested from. We value this information as it provides provenance that the cotton we use in our sweatshirts is sourced ethically and responsibly.

“Cotton is farmed with such precision that the plants all grow to within an inch in height to each other. They are harvested at exactly the right time, by combine harvesters run on GPS navigation systems, which leads to high levels of consistency in the cotton as well as complete traceability.”

    Amazing quality and fit. Colour looks great in person. Paired them up with the Hebtroco denim shorts and 925 jeans and they looked wonderful. Hope you restock them next year!

    Usual Hebtroco quality and whoever puts these sweatshirts together is a master of their art. Superb weight for that one barmy summer evening we get here in East Lancashire. A great all rounder garment as a lovely rich choccy brown colour which goes with many things.
