Pima cotton is classified as a fibre of exceptional length. Long Staple fibre measures around 40mm. The yarn is doubled after spinning to increase its durability and abrasion resistance. Such properties result in a finer yarn with superior strength and uniformity, which is visible in the finished fabric. This high-luster fibre results in garments that are smoother, softer, and more durable than traditional yarns. Because of the soft texture of the Long Staple cotton.
The process at Ventile begins with obtaining the highest grade, extra-long staple cotton, with only 2% of the world’s cotton crop.
