Updated: Sep 15, 2022
Softness. The cotton plant is soft and fluffy and results in a fabric which often retains that soft feel.
Durability. The cotton plant’s cellular structure is strong, creating a tough and wear-and-tear resistant fabric.
Absorbency. Cotton fabric is very absorbent fabric because there is a lot of space between the cotton fibres.
Holds dye well. Due to its absorbent nature, cotton takes dye very easily and can be made into a wide variety of colours.
Breathability. The fibre structure of cotton makes it more breathable than synthetic fibres.
No static cling. Cotton does not conduct electricity, therefore static is not an issue with cotton.
