Cotton

As we told in previous post, we are using Egyptian cotton for our production. In Egypt cotton find the right climate to grow at his best, with long staples. Longer is the staple, better quality is the yarn.
Years ago the cotton was picked up by hands, and this was the best way to keep its quality. There were plantation also in South Europe at that time, but years by years they disappeared, due to the high cost of the work and climate change.
