What is Long Staple cotton?
Long staple cotton put simply is the good stuff, it’s stronger, lasts longer, holds dyes better, pills less, and is much softer…


Long staple cotton is a category that includes:
Pima cotton
Supima cotton
Suvin cotton
Zimbabwean cotton
Egyptian cotton
Sea Island cotton
Most quality “Non-Iron” Shirts that are 100% cotton
Things that say Long Staple cotton on them
ETC..
(Please post if you’ve heard of another one)















I have found some nice Long Staple cotton t-shirts hear:
