I grew up in the 80's so I'm loving the flourescent/neon tees that are out right now. I'd love to find some in cotton, or at least enough cotton, to dye a pattern (stripes or spiral or whatever) in black lines over the color, but so far the highest cotton content I've seen in them is 60%. I've thought about buying one and seeing what kind of dye coverage I'd get with this idea but my experience with blends leads me to believe it'd be throwing away money. :-\
Is there something about cotton that doesn't hold the color? Why are those tops all polyester and nylon and so little cotton? I certainly don't love them enough to wear anything made of polyester in 104-degree humid Washington DC heat!
Anyone know why polyester? And does anyone know if there is likely to be more cotton in some of these?
