What is Pima Cotton?

Pima cotton is a type of cotton grown primarily in Peru, the southwestern United States and Australia. This type of cotton is named after the Pima, a group of American Indians who first cultivated the plant in the U.S.A in the 1700s, but the plant was first cultivated in Peru.

Pima cotton has extremely long fibres, similar to Egyptian cotton and is generally considered to be one of the superior types of cotton. The fibre length means that pima cotton weaves into a very soft, dense and durable fabric lasting as much as 50 percent longer than fabrics made from other forms of cotton.

Being carefully harvested entirely by hand, it produces a brilliant white cotton that is smooth and dyes beautifully meaning the brilliant colour and silky soft feel will remain wash after wash, wear after wear. It is so light to wear yet provides superior warmth and is a great choice for people with skin sensitivities too.
