Wardrobe: Supima redux
posted by Colleen Shirazi on Saturday, September 27, 2008 at 12:01 AM (Pacific)

ll bean tee shirts

Jeesh, where have I been? There is Supima cotton aplenty.

The above are from LL Bean; actually they don't make it that easy to find their Supima items (I searched for pima and opened each one). They don't seem to carry Supima sweaters, but do feature a wider variety of tee shirt styles than Land's End, with a broader range of colors.

The Supima organization has been around for quite a while (founded 1954), and I can't help wondering whether items I'd bought long ago, and had marvelled at their ability to withstand wash after wash, hadn't been made of this stuff, or fiber of a comparable grade. I knew it was the fiber itself--not brand, nor workmanship, nor weave. Hence the quest to identify the fiber.
