To get these jeans as soft as they are, we had to go against the grain. we developed a denim in a left hand weave, woven from ring spun yarns, which is much softer. You’ll feel the results the first time you touch them.
You don’t have to wash them; you don’t have to break them in. It’s denim like you’ve never felt it before. Smart Boys mix their LWDenim with funky music inspired graphic T’s layered under embellished shirts and stand out in Skater styles in primary hues. Girls mix it up with separates that give traditional elements a modern edge.
Fairisle and Argyle sweaters in cute V neck’s and skinny cardis are worn over clashing coloured blouses with polka dots and floral or equestrian prints, or under spotty shrunken velvet blazers for a chic yet playful style.
Left Hand weave is the diagonal direction of the twill line in the denim fabric. Most denim and khaki fabrics are made in either right hand twill or left hand twill. Changing the weave direction to left hand from right creates a denim that is softer to the touch and accentuates the appearance of yarn character (vertical slubbiness).
The denim also has a noticeably better drape. Gap Left Weave Denim also uses ring spun yarns. All denim fabric is woven from yarns that either “ring spun” or” open end” yarns. Ring spun yarns are cotton fibers that are twisted together in multiple spinning processes.
Because ring spun yarns go through multiple yarn twisting, this creates a stronger, softer yarn. Gap uses ring-spun denim for a true authentic look and feel of the fabric.
