Cotton is a natural fibre mainly made of cellulose. We get it from the tropical plant of the same name. The cotton plant produces an oval-shaped fruit full of seeds that generates the cotton fibre used to spin the textile yarn since antiquity.

Cotton fibre is highly resistant to hot water and ironing. It is excellent at absorbing moisture and a good heat conductor. It also helps dissipate body heat. Some of the downsides to this fibre are its lack of elasticity and its tendency to shrink.

Cotton can be hand or machine washed. We recommend using fabric softener to help the fibres stretch. Drying in direct sunlight is not recommended because white cotton tends to yellow.
