The Benefits of Cotton

If you have ever worn a 100% cotton garment, you can attest to its superior comfort. Cotton is non-irritating, never itchy or scratchy and easily worn by people allergic to wool or synthetic fibers.

Cotton absorbs body moisture and evaporates it to the surrounding air, thus allowing your body its natural tendency to breathe - keeping you cool in summer and dry and warm in winter. Not only are you more comfortable in cotton, you are healthier wearing it!

Cotton combines many qualities that add up to dependable performance. Cotton is strong and durable, with a high tensile strength. As an ideal fabric to launder, cotton is 30% stronger when wet, will withstand repeated washings in the hottest water and is free of static electricity which causes fabrics to cling and soil easily. Cotton fibers also accept the fastest dyes, providing you with vibrant, colorfast yarns.

Cotton's inherent natural qualities and year-round good looks are all pluses that add up to making cotton one of your best fiber friends. You'll always feel and look your best in the crisp, clean and fashionable good looks of cotton.

Cotton is hypoallergenic meaning it doesn't irritate sensitive skin or cause allergies. It is also good for asthmatics.

Cotton is very soft, which is why it is particularly favored for underwear and garments that get close to the skin. The ends of cotton fibers are spun very tightly into the yarn so that the fabric doesn't irritate skin or cause static electricity.

Cotton is long lasting if well looked after.

Cotton can be easily blended with other fibers such as synthetics like polyester or lycra.

Cotton can be easily dyed various colors because of its highly absorbent property.

Cotton is a good conductor of heat. In other words, it draws heat away from your skin to keep you cool, making it comfortable to wear.

Cotton breathes, so it is cool to wear.

Cotton absorbs moisture easily and can take up to one fifth of its weight in water before it actually feels damp.

Cotton absorbs body moisture and evaporates it to the surrounding air, thus allowing your body its natural tendency to breathe - keeping you cool in summer and dry and warm in winter. Not only are you more comfortable in cotton, you are healthier wearing it!

Cotton tends not to be affected by sunlight so it can be used for curtains, tents and tarpaulins that receive lots of exposure to the sun.

Cotton does not contain any chemicals and therefore is a natural product.

Unlike synthetics, cotton has superior absorbency and a naturally textured surface that makes it an effective cleanser.

Because the fiber can withstand high temperatures, it can be sterilized. In addition, cotton personal care products are "finish free."

Synthetics are often chemically treated to make the fiber suitable for processing. Individuals with hypersensitive skin, prone to allergic reactions, may prefer to stick with beauty aids made from natural fibers.

Man-made fabrics don't provide the same ventilation that natural fibers do. Because fungi flourish in dark, moist environments, constrictive, synthetic garments can create an ideal habitat for yeast to multiply.
