THE COTTON ROAD
Carefully selected raw materials; technologically advanced spinning machinery.Dyes that respect the environment are used in dyeing processes to highlight the natural characteristics of the yarn.Iafil produces ELS (Extra Long Staple) cotton from count Ne 3 to Ne 180. The production of yarns reflects the high quality standards of the company, from the choice of raw materials to the whole spinning, twisting, mercerising and dyeing cycle.
SEA ISLAND COTTON
A very long fibre cultivated exclusively on the islands of the British West Indies, where the climatic conditions are ideal for growing this kind of cotton.
This unique fibre comes from a seed commonly known as 'Black Seed' and is produced in limited amounts.Sea Island Cotton quality is guaranteed by an original certificate issued by WISICA, the West Indian Sea Island Cotton Association.
SUVIN ELS COTTON
Created from the harmonious combination of Sea Island and Sujata Cotton, Suvin is a very rare cotton from India with a very long and extremely delicate fibre. Yarns that have a unique, extraordinarily soft and silky hand are made from this.
PERUVIAN PIMA ELS COTTON
The legendary 'cotton of the gods', extremely valuable and supremely soft. It is still cultivated and handpicked in the rarefied air of the Peruvian highlands, using traditional methods to preserve its original qualities: a particularly long and fine fibre that gives this yarn unrivalled shine and softness.
GIZA 45 ELS COTTON
The best of all Egyptian cottons, cultivated only in a small area east of the Nile delta: it is a strong, shiny cotton with extraordinarily long fibres, a high degree of uniformity and extreme fineness.
SUPIMA ELS COTTON
A long-fibre American cotton, cultivated in the Western and Southwestern United States.
Its extraordinarily pure and uniform fibre is its most significant characteristic.
Iafil is a member of the Supima Organization.
