English Fine Cottons yarns are produced using extra-long staple (ELS) cotton varieties, which make some of the highest quality yarns produced in the world today. ELS varieties are comparatively rare, attracting a price premium.

Supima cotton – Superior American Pima – is a premium variety of ELS cotton grown exclusively in the far west and south west USA, and has been developed to improved yield and enhanced fibre characteristics which give the yarns a superior strength, evenness and consistency"
