I tend to keep my best secrets, best-kept-secrets -but I can't resist sharing this one. Was introduced to them through a friend of mine. Based in Wakayama, Japan. 

Kanekichi is my personal favorite loop-wheel knitting company. Organic cotton on all their t's. I have a few of their products, basically the best t-shirts you can buy.

Thanks for sharing BA. Are there sites that I can see or carry their products online?

Does Kanekichi sell tees directly? Would love to try some but from the looks of their website they only sell fabric?

Okay Folks. There are other companies that are ordering from kanekichi but my good friend Masaki at Tezomeya has been dealing with them for long enough time. He is actually the one who introduced me to them.  

Also LoopWheeler I think is their brand or official reseller.

Wow, loopwheel fabric plus natural dyes. The colors look wonderful. Only if the t-shirts come in size 180cm. Thanks for sharing BA.

thought id share some pics of my loopwheel tee's

first up is my favorite , Joe McCoy (Real McCoy)


i love fabric of this tee , its soo soft and tight woven and also had quite a lot of texture 



the print as also aging realy well

and some Flat Head



never realy thought id find a tee that came close to McCoys but these are defiantly on the same level 
im not 100% sure if the reglan sleeve tee is loopwheel but its still a great tee
