Ummm... I think you can get jersey wool, which comes from sheep on the island of Jersey, so that wouldn't be synthetic. But most t-shirts I know of are made of cotton...

That's rubbish! I'm from Jersey, and it's not that! There are wollen jumpers called Jerseys and Guernseys, which the fishermen wore (and still do) because they're very warm, made out of wool, but it's not a special type of wool, it's the stitching.

T-shirts are made out of cotton, and often some sort of synthetic material, polyester normally.

jersey refers to the way it's knitted - ie stretchy machine knit that doesn't fray but's still fairly thin.
Specifically it's cotton jersey
I wish i didn't know this.

Sorry, I didnt meant to offend anyone...in fact my knowledge was so limited I didnt know that 'jersey' was named after a place...I shouldnt be blamed!!

Cotton - natural, polyester - synthetic, or a mixture of the two
