Pima -# 8027 Aqua 50 wt 2 ply cotton 1200 yds

Pima cotton originally began in Peru but became well known from the southwestern United States. The name comes from the Pima North American Indians.

Pima cotton references a specific type of cotton grown in the US, while Egyptian cotton simply refers to the origin.(Please note: Within Egypt, there are many different types of cotton grown. Superior Threads uses only the highest grades of Egyptian-grown cotton for its Egyptian-grown cotton thread lines.)

Like any thread, we suggest you try it for yourself and see. Some sources claim that only 3% of the cotton produced in the United States is Pima cotton. The length and strength of the cotton fibers make it a high-quality material.
