Sea Island cotton is one of the top-quality varieties of cotton, along with Pima and Egyptian. Sea Island cotton’s fineness comes from its long staples (1 3/8”-2 1/2”), along with the fineness of its fibres, its strength and softness. It is always destined for the best finished goods.

The cotton gets its name from the Sea Islands off the coast of Georgia and the Carolinas, where it has been grown since the late 18th century. It was probably brought from the West Indies, through the Bahamas.
