Giza 87 is the gift made by the cross between Giza 45 and Giza 77. Introduced in 1997, it represents one of the successful
attempts to give birth to a top quality Giza Cotton, that could satisfy the estimators, as it is similar to Giza 45 in term of fineness.
As to the properties of Giza 87, fibers are
extremely long (36mm) and have a uniformity index of 89.8%, but what really
makes this Cotton exceptional is thefineness of its fibers measured in micronaire, with an average of 3.0,
and the degree of brightness equal to 76,6%, the best among the ELS Cotton varieties. The stretching resistance of Giza
87 fibers is also high with an average of 47.0g/tex.
In terms of resistance, cleanliness and regularity, the unique excellent features of Giza 87 are
obvious, used to make extremely fine and strong yarns & fabrics that have an extraordinary soft and silky consistency. This kind of yarn is smaller in diameter yet stronger than yarns
made by other cotton varieties.
Finer yarn means that the more threads per square can be used to create strong fabric which has less weight, so it is
precisely for this reason that Giza 87 combines softness and durability properties.
