More about cotton
Cotton is a natural fibre that comes from the seedpod of the cotton plant. Cotton is the most popular fabric in the world for many reasons. Firstly, it is easy to care for. Secondly, this fabric ‘breathes’ so is comfortable in hot, humid weather. As the body perspires, the fibers absorb the moisture and release it on the surface of the fabric, so it evaporates. Finally, in cold weather, if the fabric remains dry, the fibers retain body heat so keeping the wearer warm.
