Activewear Definition

Activewear can be confusing because of all the different names it goes by.  Some people refer to this material as breathable, moisture wicking, poly, sport-wick, etc.  What all these names have in common is that the material can wick away moisture.  This breathable fabric lets moisture (sweat) in the form of a vapor to pass through it making you cooler and less likely to sweat more.  The moisture wicking material allows your skin to breathe and stay cool and dry. If you work outdoors in the summer heat, enjoy summer sports or are looking for workout clothes then activewear is the best moisture wicking material for you. The breathable fabric in activewear is also perfect for layering. Wear it under warm clothes to help keep you warm and dry in cold weather.

Cotton Activewear

Not all activewear is made of polyester.  We still sell a lot of cotton items such as t shirts and sweatshirts.  There are some great new options available if you are looking for the best moisture wicking material but don’t care for the feel of polyester. At Buffalo Embroidery and Silkscreen we can help you find the best performance activewear for your needs and get your brand looking great on it!
