Read on below if you want to know more about PIMA cotton.
What is pima cotton?
Pima cotton has unparalleled properties compared only to Egyptian Pima.
The combination of seed, soil and microclimate has made Peruvian Pima cotton the finest and longest staple cotton in the world. When properly processed, it has a special luster and unsurpassed softness to the touch. In addition, despite being a fine and long fiber, Pima cotton is also stronger than most other cottons, making garments more durable.
Due to the length of its fiber, it is considered among the best in the world.
The extra-long fiber provides strength, resistance and enormous durability.
This cotton is still grown today without pesticides or fertilizers, making it an organic product.
Some call it the “Andean Silk”.
READ ME. Important information:
You should keep in mind that artisanal dyeing is not like industrial dyeing. Batches are small, and the intensity and distribution of colors may vary from one skein to another. If you need the skeins to be from the same dye lot and as similar as possible, please write this in the order notes to take this into account.
It is also important for you to know that colors may look different on each screen and that the mix and distribution of colors you receive may differ from the photo because no two skeins are exactly alike.
In any case, no worries! Because if when you receive the skeins they are not what you expected, we will start the return process without any problem and at no cost to you.
When it comes to washing delicate hand-woven garments, it is important to take extra precautions to maintain their shape and quality, especially if they are woven with hand-dyed yarns.
- Hand wash:
- Fill a container with warm water and neutral soap or mild detergent specific for delicate garments or wool.
- Immerse the garment in the water and let it soak for 10-15 minutes. Avoid rubbing or twisting the garment, as this may damage the fibers and cause deformation.
- Careful rinsing: Rinse the garment with clean water several times until no detergent residue remains. Be sure not to twist it while rinsing it.
- Dry flat: Place the garment on a clean towel and gently roll the towel to remove excess water. Then, stretch the garment on a flat surface, in block form, to dry. Avoid hanging it, as this may deform it. Tends to shade, prolonged sun exposure can fade colors.
- Proper storage: After washing and drying, store in a clean, dry place. You can spray the garment with our mothproof perfume, gently fold it and place it in a breathable cloth bag.
