Cotton Fiber Guide

We have created this fiber guide to show you some of the properties of cotton, one of the leading fibers.

Cotton is a naturally produced fiber that, in its natural form, has a matte, off-white appearance. Raw, organic, “green” cotton is available through Fairtrade or the Better Cotton Initiative. We like to use cotton in a range of our garments for several reasons; the soft handle is ideal for wearer comfort, and its natural properties mean cotton is non-allergenic. Cotton is also breathable, strong when wet, and does not produce static build-up.

While there are many advantages, there are also a few negative cotton characteristics; it requires more ironing than fabrics produced from other fibers, and it takes a long time to dry naturally.

Take a look at the video below for a brief run-through of the points above:
