    Re: sweater sweatshirt plush

    There are UK/US differences in these terms.

    A sweater is a knitted overgarment, also called a jersey.

    A sweatshirt is a knitted informal overgarment, originally designed for use by sportsmen. It can have a hood attached, and the material is generally cotton or a cotton mix with a fleecy interior.

    Plush is a form of velvet and is usually used for upholstery and curtains. Sweatshirts can be made of polar fleece, which is a synthetic fabric with an absorbent pile.
