Can we talk about cotton? It’s the foundation of a great article of clothing. The stuff you put close to your skin day in and day out. In the world of textiles, cotton fibres are categorized by the length of the fibres called staples. Staples vary in length from Extra Long Staple (ELS), Long-Stape (LS), and regular cotton. The longer the fibre, the better the cotton because it can be spun to make the finest of yarns without sacrificing strength. The better the cotton, the stronger the fabric. We all know that Egypt is a leader in producing the most exceptional, ultra-high quality cotton available. This is mostly due to highly favorable climate and fertile soil surrounding the Nile. Since pure Egyptian cotton consists of finer threads, they can be woven into each square inch and produce a finer and more consistent finish, ending up as a softer and more flexible fabric. Also, since they’re not picked by machines, the fibres are stronger and more resistant to stress.
Egyptian cotton is pretty much the King of cotton. And only the King of cotton is good enough for SPRESSO socks. Spin the cotton in the best mills in Italy and now we have ourselves the King of socks.
