Pima Bomuld 2/8 is a super soft cotton by CaMaRose, which is imported from Peru. The Pima cotton plants grow mainly in northern Peru, where the combination of the soil, the equatorial sun and the water from the rivers makes Peruvian Pima cotton one of the finest cotton species found in the world. The cotton is hand-picked 3 times a year.
Pima cotton fibers are so long and fine that it must be hand-picked to prevent it from being filtered. The fibers have an almost silky sheen and result in a delicate and soft cotton yarn. The fact that the fibers of Pima cotton are so long means that the yarn does not have to be twisted so many times and this is the reason why the yarn stays soft.
The extra long fibers are therefore part of the group of cotton called ELS (extra long staple). The long fibers on the cotton increase the quality and cause them not to become as easily frayed. This means that Pima cotton is very durable and a durable cotton of the finest quality. Pima cotton also has higher strengths and durability than almost any other cotton, furthermore it is also more resistant to shrinkage and fading.
Pima Bomuld is dyed according to STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® in solid colored unique colors made especially for CaMaRose.
Due to the softness of Pima cotton, it is very suitable for baby, children and adult knitwear, or others who prefer cotton over wool. Pima cotton holds up really well in use and in washing, and does not harden when it is washed.
