Cotton is one of the most commonly used fabrics on earth as it is soft, comfortable, durable & strong. Cotton is easy to clean & can withstand high temperatures meaning it can be boiled & sterilized. Furthermore, this fabric is easy to sew, takes on colour well and resists pilling & moths.
Cotton is suitable for all seasons - it breathes well in hot & humid conditions, absorbing moisture & releasing it to be evaporated on the top of the fabric & remains dry & retains body heat in winter.
While pure cotton fabrics can be prone to wrinkling, this issue can be reduced by blending the fabric with other fibers.
