Quality Information

The Sandy Seekat has made the decision not to stock any products made from cheap material. Most of our t-shirts are made from combed ring-spun cotton (unless stated otherwise in the description), which is the highest quality available.

Fabric composition

Most tees are made of 100% cotton, yet they’re not all the same. There’s Plain Jane aka cotton, followed by its prettier cousin ring-spun cotton, and finally, we have the queen of the ball, combed cotton – (Heather colors have fabric blends that contain cotton).

The processes for creating regular cotton, ring-spun cotton, combed cotton, and fabric blends with cotton are definitely not the same. So let’s figure out the specifics of each of these fabrics.

Regular Cotton

Regular cotton is made from soft vegetable fibers that are twisted together to make yarn, which is then woven to make the material. The regular cotton t-shirt is the industry standard. It’s less expensive to make, which means it’s a big seller worldwide - none of our t-shirts are just regular cotton.

Ring-Spun Cotton

The yarn for ring-spun cotton is made by twisting and thinning the cotton strands to make a very fine, strong, soft rope of cotton fibers. They’ve been through a spinning process that softens and straightens each fiber. Ring-spun cotton t-shirts are more durable and last longer than their regular counterparts, but will also be a bit more expensive, too - none of our t-shirts are just ring-spun cotton.

Combed Cotton

Combed cotton has been combed to make the yarn stronger and softer. This combing process also rids the batch of shorter fibers and impurities, which results in a finer, stronger and more compact cotton. Combed cotton is considered higher-quality and softer than cotton that hasn’t been combed - none of our t-shirts are just combed cotton.

Ring-Spun Combed Cotton

It’s a step up in quality as it is even more refined. After the cotton fibers have been spun, they’re combed to remove any impurities or imperfect strands. This way, the knit that is produced is soft and extremely durable. Most of our t-shirts (unless stated otherwise in the description) is ring-spun combed cotton, making for a real premium t-shirt.


Our hoodies, all over prints & heather colors are blends of cotton & polyester. Sometime elastane or rayon is also added. The feel of some of these materials is soft and stretchy, yet still durable like our all over print t-shirts. Each product's information & composition will be in its description on the product page.
