Why We Love Pima Cotton
Pima cotton is hypoallergenic, resistant to pilling, extremely durable, absorbent and it's no wonder it is one of the highest quality cottons in the world. Pima cotton is grown and harvested mainly in Peru.
You can pass down the clothing to your second or third child, or even beyond! Pima cotton is extremely durable and unbelievably soft. It is so soft, it resembles silk, which is perfect for a new baby's sensitive skin. Pima cotton is extra long staple (ELS) cotton. By law, ELS cotton fibers are at least 3/8 inch longer than short staple cotton. This makes it one of the longest cotton strands in the world. This is why Pima cotton does not hold stains like regular cottons do. Hand harvested, Pima cotton is environmentally friendly, has bright white fibers and is virtually free from impurities.
