Why Buy Peruvian Pima Cotton?

Peruvian Pima cotton is prized all around the world as a luxury fiber and is called 'gamuza' by the Peruvians, meaning suede in Spanish because of its silky soft feel and brilliant luster. The silky soft feel is a result of the excellent growing conditions in the northern coastal valleys of Peru where it is cultivated.

Harvested by hand

Peruvian pima cotton is harvested by hand, resulting in a brilliant white shade that can be easily dyed. Cotton harvested industrially leaves scratchy impurities, which affect smoothness and creates a yellowish color to the fiber. This fiber is classified as luxury because of its 1 3/8" length, ordinary cottons measure half to three quarters as much in length.

Easy care

This fabric can be easily machine washed (gentle) or dry cleaned, is practical and easy to maintain and will last through many years of use.

Dear wonderful folks at Alpaca Direct -- Thank you so much. You all are a pleasure to deal with. I love the things I ordered, my orders arrived at my house *ridiculously* fast (seriously, I'm on the other side of the country, and they arrived in two days), and in general you've been exactly what I wish all online retails were. Thank you again for the wonderful product and wonderful service - I will definitely be back!
