The term two-ply indicates that the cotton thread used to weave the fabric consists of two strands. While spinning, these two strands are twisted around each other. This process creates a thicker and stronger thread and therefore a better quality fabric.
Two-ply cotton is a popular material for high-quality garments. Two-ply cotton fabrics are strong and durable and barely pill. The double thread also ensures a firm fit, shape retention and a luxurious look. The best news? All of this comes without sacrificing softness, stretch and comfort. At R2, we like to use two-ply cotton for our formal and business shirts.
