WHY CHOOSE SUPIMA® COTTON?
Theres so much information (and misinformation) on the market that when it comes to picking a beautiful bed linen set for the home, it can be so easy to get confused. The reason we chose Supima® for our first ever bed linen range at Feyre Home, is because Supima® cotton provides an extra- long staple cotton that is far superior in all aspects to any other cotton on the market.
Supima® has more in all aspects of what we love about cotton: its strength, softness and colour retention. Compared to other cotton fibres:
Supima® cotton has superior length and fineness. It is 35% longer than average cotton making for superior, stronger, smoother and cleaner yarns, resulting in softer to touch and comfortable fabrics that have a higher resistance to pilling.
Supima® cotton is 45% stronger than regular cotton (due to the strength of the individual fibres) which makes for extraordinarily resilient products and allows for light weight bed linen fabrics that drape beautifully and breathe comfortably.
Supima® delivers brilliant, long lasting colour, which results in a longer lasting product. As Supima® fibres are finer than regular cotton, the colour dyes can penetrate much more easily and deeper into the yarn than regular cottons. This means when you buy Feyre Home bed linen you can expect more vibrant colours that stay much longer and fade less over time.
With proper care bedlinen made from Supima® will only get softer over time.
Supima® cotton is traceable throughout the full Supima® Supply Chain. This covers all links in the supply chain from cotton grower, ginning, spinning, weaving, dyeing, finishing and make up. This is essential to guarantee the integrity of product quality throughout the entire Supply Chain.
Fabrics can be DNA tested, so only products and brands that have passed the evaluation process of only using 100% Supima® extra-long staple cotton can use the Supima® brand labels and packaging.
