I was wondering if anyone knows why Quacker Factory most often uses either just all cotton or a cotton/poly blend, and hardly ever adds any stretch/spandex. (I know they do occasionally, but not often.)

I am so glad that they DO use cotton or cotton poly blend. I willl not wear a shirt that has spandex in it. I live in Arizona and the spandex makes material soooo rubbery like latex that it does not breathe. Cotton/spandex IMO is not soft and pills easily. Just looks cheap.

Maybe to have something just a little different to appeal to a different set of buyers?
We all don't ever seem to want exactly what someone else wants. It's the old to-may-to to-mah-to thing.

Maybe QVC and QF recognize that not everyone likes a lot of spandex in tops. Variety and options. Some women love spandex and hate the cotton/poly blend and others are the opposite. I think there is a market for both.
I personally don't purchase tops with spandex in them. I prefer cotton/poly blends. I love the Allison Daley brand I purchase at Dillard's. They are either 100% cotton or cotton/poly blend. They wash beautifully, don't pill, retain their shape and color. I just purchased two today on sale!

I like D&C 95 cotton/5 spandex tops - good quality and material feels good on. Other brands in the stores - not so much; again because of the feel of the material. I don't usually like 100% cotton; strinkage, can be thick and heavy or very thin. I do like a 60/40 cotton/poly blend. Also like coltton/modal. I like Susan Graver's 95/5 poly/span (liquid knit). Quality of the material is much better than I find elsewhere.
As to the quality of Quaker Factory tops, in most cases the qualilty is very good.
