diff. colors are very diff. materials

I bought two shirts -- the light blue and the red. They are each very different materials. The red one is much thicker than I was expecting -- a kind of waffle weave that was very soft on the inside. I was hoping for thin lightweight long underwear like my [...] mid-weight long underwear. These definitely aren't that. I almost sent this back, but my daughter *loved* it because it was so soft. She has worn this shirt on two camping trips so far: as a warm underlayer in the evening and then for sleeping in at night. She gives it two thumbs up, but just beware the red shirt is very thick.The light blue shirt is much thinner, but has a much more "polyester" feel. Comes out of the dryer very clingy and static-y. Again, not quite the fabric I was hoping for, but my daughter really likes the color and says it is quite warm for sleeping in. (Before getting the long underwear she was never able to keep warm in her 20-degree sleeping bag at night. The long underwear is just the right thing for keeping her warm without bulking her up.)
