Deltapine Select + Field to Closet  

Deltapine Select™ Varieties + Field to Closet™

SUPERIOR FIBER QUALITY
FOR STRONGER DEMAND

From gin to mill to manufacturer, the cotton industry demands longer, stronger and cleaner fiber. Meeting and profiting from that demand all begins with the seed. For years, Deltapine has been working with local breeding teams and growers to boost yield and fiber quality potential in its varieties. Today, we’re proud to introduce Deltapine Select™ varieties. These varieties have been tested extensively — including HVI, AFIS and ginning studies — to prove they have the best fiber quality and yield potential in our lineup, and can produce the highest-quality yarn and textiles.

To help create awareness and drive demand for premium, U.S.-grown upland cotton, Deltapine® has partnered with the Field to Closet™ initiative. Field to Closet works to show the industry the advancements that have been made with Deltapine Select™ varieties and the opportunities that come with superior fiber quality.

Higher Yarn Counts

THE BENEFITS OF BETTER FIBER QUALITY

Fiber quality plays an important role in both the creation and quality of the end product. The excellent fiber length found in Deltapine Select™ varieties means stronger yarn, and stronger yarn leads to improved spinning qualities — benefiting mills and textile industries with more opportunities. Cotton with higher yarn counts can also be spun down into finer yarn, which leads to a higher-quality end product that everyone can enjoy.

Better Than Average Strength: 30-32.4 g/tex  
Excellent Upper Half Mean Length: 38-42 staple  
Improved Yarn Strength: 8%-20%

Improved vs. standard-quality checks.

 
Yarn Count: 40-60

This yarn count can be used to produce higher-end men's shirts and underwear, performance wear, high-end home goods, and woven shirts such as polos.

 
 

Field to Closet™

A STRONG PARTNERSHIP FOR STRONG COTTON

Jernigan Global, a Nashville-based consultant with decades of experience working with the cotton supply chain and textile industry, created the Field to Closet™​ initiative to familiarize cotton brand retailers with the innovation and advancement of U.S. cotton — specifically how the superior fiber quality found in Deltapine Select™ varieties can now be marketed to produce premium textiles.

Deltapine is proud to support these efforts to elevate U.S.-grown cotton, and the growers who raise it.

 

Increased Fiber Quality, Increased Opportunity

The elite genetics of Deltapine® cotton ensure high yield potential and premium fiber quality. Thanks to the gains made in fiber quality over the years, Deltapine cotton now rivals premium Australian and Acala varieties, and outperforms synthetic fibers in customer preference. A premium fiber quality variety creates more opportunities for millers and manufacturers — from improved spinning speed to finer yarn for a higher-quality product — which benefits everyone.

The Story Behind Field to Closet

Learn how the Field to Closet initiative got off the ground, and hear stories from growers about how Deltapine® cotton's improved fiber quality is changing the game.

 
Deltapine has always been a good company for us to deal with. We have the same cotton rep that I've had just about since I've started farming cotton. That means a lot when you're dealing with the same person year after year.

I've been growing Deltapine for just about all of my years I've been fooling with cotton. A few years I would change and try something else, but I'd always come back to the Deltapine varieties. Seems like they've always worked really well for me, and they're always on top of all the new technology
