What Are the Characteristics of Cotton?

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.
