"I got the 16/2 Supima this morning. Thanks - it’s gorgeous weaving yarn.

I found a draft over the weekend in my wish list pile for two tablecloths that calls for 2.5 lbs of 16/2! I’ll use it for that.



Hi Michael, 

I dyed a skein each of Supima and 3/2 cotton for Eris to test knit on her machines. Yarns feel wonderful and dye beautifully.

Supima,  being a extra long staple cotton it is very strong.

Supima accounts for only about three percent of annual cotton production in the United States. Its fineness and longer staple length makes Supima (Superior Pima) a premium cotton fiber. The Supima® trademark is the consumer's only guarantee that a product is made of 100% American Pima cotton. The Federal Trade Commission ruled in June of 1997 that manufacturers and retailers would have to itemize cotton source content on any apparel or textile product when the name of a premium fiber was being used.

 This cotton is grown on one farm in California and ginned on the farm; it is more expensive because Pima cotton is roller-ginned, not saw-ginned like upland cotton. The fiber was spun and plied in Georgia.

What's the difference between Supima and Egyptian cotton?

All cotton grown in Egypt is "Egyptian", but not all of it is extra-long staple cotton. "Egyptian Cotton" conjures in the mind of many consumers images of the very finest and longest cotton in the world. Egypt does produce and sell some of the best ELS cotton in the world, but it amounts to only about 7% of the annual global ELS cotton exports. Supima is made exclusively of extra-long staple cotton grown in the US and has become the cotton of choice among the world's fine-clothing producers.

It has been stated that Levi Strauss has used ELS cotton (Sea Island Cotton) for their denim fabrics produced by Amoskeag Manufacturing since the mid-1800s. This ELS cotton variety was shipped from southern states like South Carolina and Georgia to Massachusetts. Even Supima’s own investigation on denim fabric remnants, which were discovered in abandoned gold mines, proves through DNA analysis that indeed ELS cotton was used in that time period of the Gold Rush.

We like to think that ELS cotton was used because the workers back then needed garments that were strong and durable and lasted for years. As the old saying goes, these miners may have been “too poor to buy cheap,” opting instead of high-quality Pima they could count on, day in and day out—and that’s even more true today. With the advent of modern spinning methods combined with Pima’s inherent strength, Supima continues this American tradition of quality, reliability, and value.

Supima is among the most luxurious, sought after cotton varieties in the world. No wonder it’s been used in all kinds of premium apparel, from fine shirting and hosiery to towels, sheets, and even medical wear.
