    Is it cotton??

    I've gotten some stretch knit stuff that came in a tube like that...I just cut it to suit my needs - I used it to make a wrap carrier for my son. I've never seen it with regular cotton, though...

    It must be a knit. Knits are knit in a tube and cut before shipping. We had a few come in uncut when I was at JoAnn's.

    Ribbing is sold that way. It's possible to make seamless t-shirts with it; however, it's more commonly used to make cuffs and neckbands for sweats.

    I have had knits that came tube style that was different than the ribbing, not as much stretch. Just use as you would any pattern.

    sorry about no pic everyone. yes it is black knit. but it is larger than cuff. I guess a no seam t-shirt would be possible or like someone said cut it open. I had a good laugh with some of the quote's LOL. Made my day ! I'll try to post a pic with some others but I have to run right now. thank you everyone. think i will cut it open and use it . I had just never seen anything like that !!

    Did you know the one thing that makes a quality tee shirt? Side seams. No side seams the tee shirt is made from tubes of fabric. Side seam tees hold their shape much longer and will look good even when worn out. The side seam tees are worth the extra cost.
