Gildan 18000 Heavyweight Blend Crewneck Sweatshirt FAQ |

To many, the Gildan 18000 Heavy Blend Crewneck Sweatshirt has a nostalgic feel as it is one of the best-selling plain crewneck sweatshirts in Canada. You may have worn it as a school gym uniform or borrowed it from a friend and never returned it - regardless of where you got it from, it is a sweatshirt you can always count on for comfort. 

Have questions on this popular Gildan 18000 Crewneck? Below, we've answered your frequently asked questions regarding the sizing, fit, and weight, and given our overall honest thoughts! 

Is it soft?

Yes, if you are looking for a soft, cozy sweatshirt lined with warm fleece, this is the crewneck for you! The Gildan 18000 crewneck may look like any other plain sweatshirt but because it is made from 50/50 cotton and polyester air jet yarn, the inside of the Gildan Crewneck Sweatshirt is noticeably thicker than most jersey cotton pieces and will feel very soft against your skin.

What is the weight?

The Gildan 18000 Heavy Blend Crewneck weighs 13.3 oz., making it the perfect thickness to wear in Canadian weather.

However, if you are looking for a thicker Gildan crewneck, we recommend the Gildan 12000, which is made from the same blend of fabric as the Gildan 18000. 

Is it Unisex?

Yes, the Gildan 18000 Sweatshirt is unisex. All styles on are unisex except for the items listed under the Ladies’ section.

Does it shrink & is it dryer safe?

The Gildan 18000 Crewneck Sweatshirt is made with preshrunk cotton and polyester, so one should expect very little shrinkage. However, there may be a 2% shrinkage in length after the first wash.

To avoid any further shrinkage, we highly recommend customers to follow the instructions on the laundry label, wash in cold water, and lay it flat to air-dry. However, if you are in a hurry, the crewneck sweatshirt is in fact dryer safe.

Does it run small?

The Gildan crewneck sweaters fit true to size, but if you fall in between sizes, we recommend going one size up. You can also refer to the size chart below.
