Supima® Cotton is a Longer Staple Length.The staple length of Supima® is 35% longer than regular cottons. This increases softness and luster. Fewer fiber ends are exposed, minimizing the effects of abrasion resulting in less pilling. It takes a premium fiber to produce a luxury product. Supima® Cotton growers know there are no shortcuts to quality. Often referred to as “the cashmere of cottons”, Supima® surpasses other cottons in softness, strength, and brilliance of color.
