The silk of South America
Pima cotton owes its nickname as the ‘silk of South America’ to its fine, silky fibres. It is these exceptionally long fibres that make Pima cotton one of the highest-quality cotton threads of all.
Pima cotton is particularly widespread in Peru. It is extremely resistant to fungal attacks and requires fewer pesticide treatments, which is better for both the fibres and the environment.
Pima cotton feels very soft against your skin, softer than other types of cotton, but is still hard-wearing. This softness makes a huge difference for textiles such as socks, underwear or T-shirts that are worn directly against the skin. Pima cotton is a supple material and ensures an extremely comfortable fit.
The Pima cotton that we use has particularly long fibres. This means that the fibres do not slip out when the thread is being spun, creating fluff (also known as pilling). The material therefore remains durable even in warm and damp climates or when exposed to friction, so your socks, underwear and T-shirts will keep their perfect shape even after multiple washes thanks to this Pima cotton.
