About Pima cotton

Pima cotton is classified as an “extra-long staple cotton,” a term that refers to the length of the individual cotton fibers. It’s considered to have extremely long fibers (1-3/8″ staple length).

It’s extremely soft and durable

while ordinary cotton fibers measure between 1/2″ to 3/4″. These longer, silkier fibers produce a luxuriously soft fabric that is also incredibly strong. It’s resistant to fraying, tearing, and wrinkling and is very absorbent.

It has a very long life span

Pima Cotton is claimed to have a 50% increased longevity in lifespan compared to regular cotton. Why? One reason is its resistance to pilling. With most types of cotton, pills (the tiny balls of tangled fiber ‘bobbles’)  start to appear on clothing after around 10 washes. In contrast, pima cotton, due to its long fibers, hardly ever pills, which means that garments made from this textile stay wearable for years and years to come.
