Gossypium barbadense, also known as extra long staple (ELS) cotton, generally has a staple (long, silky fibers) length of at least 1 3/8" or longer. You might know ELS cotton by the brand name varieties, such as Pima or Supima.
The longer the staple, the higher the thread count that can be spun—which means a higher quality fabric and shirt. Through research and collaboration with our farmers, we have been able to produce cotton that can be spun into yarns of over 700 thread count.
We are committed to making a positive impact on our local farmers and communities through the creation of local programs for health and education. We have also set up a micro-finance program that supports the cotton farming community and its income growth by facilitating the purchasing of seeds and machines.
