Pima is a high-end cotton cultivar with a longer staple length (1.4” – 2.0”) longer than conventional cotton (~1.1”). Originally developed by crossing Egyptian varieties with Sea Island cotton in the early 19th century, Pima is named for the Pima Indians of Arizona who helped perfect the cultivar in the early 20th century.
