CURL EDGE TRIM


A separate knitted trim that is attached (either sewn or linked) to the edge of a sweater knit fabric to form a finished trim or edging. The separate trim utilizes a 1 X1 rib construction. However, in which the last few courses (rows of loops) on one side of the trim (about ½ inch) the construction is changed from a 1 X 1 rib to a plain stitch knit construction. The curled edge occurs on the plain stitch side of the trim, and stops curling when the construction changes from the plain stitch to the 1 X 1 rib construction. When the trim is linked or sewn to the edge of the knitted fabric that is to be trimmed, the rollover or curled edge of the trim creates a finished edging on the knitted fabric. This type of finished edge can be used in such areas of a garment as the front panels of a cardigan sweater.

MEN'S HORIZONTAL DR. COOL SHIRT
This shirt is constructed using Coolcore's patented chemical-free moisture and sweat activated material to make sweat work for you. Rather than a simple wicking technology, the material delivers three distinct functions: wicking, moisture circulation, and regulated evaporation to reduce the fabric's surface temperature by up to 30%. Unlike other workout shirts Dr. Cool is chemical-free so that cooling benefits last the life of the shirt.

The wrap replaces traditional bags of ice and combines cold therapy with compression to help reduce swelling and speed recovery. Use the Small ice wrap on your wrist, ankle or foot. Use the Medium wrap as an injury wrap on your knee, elbow or ankle. With a Dr. Cool ice wrap, your injury won’t hold you back.
