    Pima cotton is a fascinating fiber.

    "Pima cotton has a smooth silky feeling, which is why it is known as the «silk of South America».
    In addition to high quality of the fibers, the plant itself is fungus-resistant, requiring fewer pesticides needed, which is much better for the environment.
    Quality you can feel

    Our top quality Pima cotton provides many product benefits. There is reduced fraying and peeling on the finished products because of the long cotton fibers(blacksocks.com)."

    2,809 views in just over 2 weeks! This forum is doing much better than I could have hoped! I have been getting lots of positive feedback and tips from the Style forum community.
    Many of us would prefer to be GM-free if we were empowered to do so. This is why we will continue to work on our community empowerment resource thread.

    Literally hundreds of studies showing that GMOs crops are SAFE to consume, let alone wear. The day my sweater tries to eat me is the day I'll even remotely consider GM cotton a health/environmental concern.

    Your sweater will never try to eat you.

    Pima Cotton sweaters are also nice though; Softer and up to 40% more durable.

    Flannel sheets are wonderful.... Supima cotton flannel sheets are even more wonderful!
    Supima:
    - Longer fibers
    - Softer
    - Up to 40% more durable
    - Needs less pesticides
    - ELS cotton is GM-free

    I currently sleep in BT cotton flannel sheets, but when my sheets ware out, I think I will try to get Pima cotton flannel sheets.
    I found a couple of websites that should be helpful for my fellow flannel sheet lovers....

    -Pima

    -Zimbabwe

    -Egyptian

    -ELS

    -Color grown

    ETC....

    Thanks Style Forum community

    Ok I'll; take the baton...

    Egyptian cotton is a wonderful type of cotton. The ancient pharaohs used to clothe their exotic looking housecats in Egyptian cotton. It is so, so cool. More info coming soon on Egyptian cotton, the cotton of the Pharoahs!!!!

    Two tips for a GMO-Free wardrobe:

    Tip #1. Buy Quality
    - High quality cotton has not been modified, just low grade cotton.
    - Most quality cottons either have a sheen, silky softness, or extended durability.
    - Companies like Iron Heart, P.B.J., and Samurai all use quality (ELS) Cotton.
    - Mostly any men's store is just full of quality cottons; many department stores also use some quality ELS cottons.
    To judge if a cotton garment is GM or not, the best way is to feel it. If it looks and feels like high quality cotton, than it most likely is.... Quality GM-free cotton.


    Or

    Tip #2. Buy Organic
    -Organics are never GMO

    I have linen sheets from Linoto that are durable and soft. Still going strong after about four years of almost continuous use.
