I'm trying to recon an old sweatshirt.  For reasons to do with the construction, I don't want to serge it, just clip the seams and leave it.  It will be horribly bulky otherwise.  My gut feel is that - like t-shirt material - it will roll rather than fray and that will be OK.

Er... or will it?  I've never sewed with sweatshirt material before because it's quite hard to get hold of in the UK.

It won't fray.  It's just heavy t-shirt material.

A state of confusion is unpleasant, but a state of certainty is ridiculous.  - Voltaire.
