Nostalgic item of the day: Loop Wheeled Sweatpants

 

In the 20’s-60’s sweatshirts and sweatpants were much nicer and more comfortable than today; this is because they were made on a marvelous American invention called the loop wheel machine. Loop wheel machines are circular knitting looms that weave a fabric without inbuilt tension which makes a very soft, durable, and lofty fabric.

The problem with loop wheel machines though was they were very slow so they were scrapped to be replaced by faster machines that mostly made inferior fabric. The remaining loop wheel machines were sold to Japan and Germany were companies like Loopwheeler and Merz b. Schwanen still use them today to make high-end clothing.

Here is a fine example of vintage loop wheeled sweatpants:

I like the US made t-shirt blanks from Royal Apparel. Super comfortable
