Under Armour is a Baltimore based athletic gear company. They are very very good partners with the City and a source of great pride among residents. So much so, that when I’m not wearing Under Armour for my athletic gear, I actually feel guilty!
The one qualm is their stuff is pricey, but honestly, worth it. The pieces I do have ll So, imagine my absolute delight when my local Guss Woolens sent an email saying they had Under Armour Cold Gear material in stock! Cold Gear is for weather under 55 degrees. And, considering how cold I always am, I live in warm fleecy garments in the winter.
I may have gone a little bananas. But, at $5 a yard for the double thick, wicking Cold Gear (forest green, red, royal blue and navy), I pretty much bought every color in stock.
And, they also have this super thin wicking fabric (black, grey, navy, royal blue and cafe au lait) that I plan to use for workout underwear or base layers. I was super happy because I remember the grey from these boy shorts.
Why am I telling you this? Because I’m nicely stocked up for myself (and two friends) and have no fear of not getting enough for myself. Plus, if you buy from them, then they’ll keep getting more and I can keep myself well stocked for years to come.
What am I going to make? We’ll…. let’s just say my long weekend sewing plans are confirmed.
Hooded sweatshirts. I loved this one Burda from November 2007 from velour several years ago and would like to make again…. but with a FBA and longer to cover my hips.
So, there you have it. Want to sew up some of it? Call or email Guss Woolens.
