In India, raw cotton that has longer fibers is grown from the North to the South.
Mr. Lakshmanan's cotton is mainly grown in the southernmost Indian state of Tamil Nadu.
The climate of Tamil Nadu, which consists of monsoons from the East and West, allows for the growing of the highest grade variety of Suvin cotton.
Growing Suvin takes 6 weeks longer than growing regular cotton. In addition, the yield of Suvin is less than that of regular cotton, making Suvin complex and difficult to grow. (It is said that once a farmer quits growing Suvin, they will never grow it again.) Harvested Suvin cotton looks silky and is the longest, thinnest and softest of all the cottons we deal with. We appreciate all of the farmers that provide wonderful raw cotton and consider ourselves responsible for manufacturing yarn carefully, to avoid damaging the raw cotton. We make sure to keep our customers apprised of the value and quality of the spun cotton.
