Heavyweight hoodies refer to the weight of the fabric they are made from. Standard weight fabric for a hooded sweatshirt is usually approximately between 250 and 300 gsm (grams per square metre). A heavyweight hoodie is one that has a fabric weight of over 300 gsm. Sometimes referred to as chunky hoodies a heavyweight hoodie is a great choice if you are thinking of personalising with a large embroidered logo. The high number of stitches in a large logo means that if you place it on a lightweight fabric it will distort the shape. An embroidered hoodie is one of our most popular embroidered garments, so if you are looking to get a personalised item of clothing a heavyweight hoodie may be a perfect choice.
