Cotton

How cotton is made?

It is a fnatural textile ibra obtained from the hairs that cover the seeds of the plant of the same name. After linen and wool, cotton is the oldest textile fiber.
Cottons are classified according to title , while the length of the fiber determines its quality: the longer it is, the shinier, stronger and more valuable the cotton is. The length of the fiber, i.e. the cut, can measure from less than 20 to more than 40 millimeters.

Soft and enveloping in the cold seasons, fresh and light on the skin when temperatures rise: cotton never disappoints and manages to be exactly what you need at any time of the year. Cotton is in fact a light and strong fiber at the same time.

Cotton is the most popular fabric in the world, inexpensive, very versatile, it perfectly absorbs any type of color. The maintenance of cotton does not require particular attention: it is washed at high temperatures (temperatures over 60 are not recommended both for the longevity of the colors and for that of the fabric itself); iron at higher temperatures 
There are cottons of different qualities according to the origin. The most precious is the Sea Island, with a long silky fiber, which is used for the most refined processes. Egyptian cotton also called Jumel or Moho is characterized by shades of color ranging from yellow to brown. Peruvian cottons (Pima), as precious as Egyptian, have the appearance of wool and are therefore often used in blends with this fiber. American cotton called Upland is short fiber and takes its name from its origin: Texas, Mississippi, Georgia, Orleans. Indian cottons have even shorter fiber than American cotton and are of poorer quality. Its name derives from the Arabic Katun (part of the conquered lands).
