         On June 26, 2009, Delta Apparel, Inc. (the "Company"), Parkdale Mills,
Inc., a North Carolina corporation, and Parkdale America, LLC, a North Carolina

the Company purchases from Parkdale all yarn required by the Company and its
wholly owned subsidiaries for use in its manufacturing operations (excluding
yarns that Parkdale did not manufacture as of the date of the Yarn Supply
Agreement in the ordinary course of its business or due to temporary Parkdale
capacity restraints). The Yarn Supply Agreement was filed as Exhibit 10.29 to
the Company's Form 10-Q filed on February 9, 2005.

         Pursuant to the Amendment, the term of the Yarn Supply Agreement was
extended until December 31, 2011. In addition, pursuant to the Amendment, the
basis, waste factors, and conversion prices used to calculate the purchase price
of yarn purchased pursuant to the Yarn Supply Agreement were amended, with the
new pricing effective beginning on July 1, 2009.
