Benefits of Cotton

Cotton is soft, absorbent and breathable. 

Cotton is easier to wash and care for than other fabrics.

Since cotton is breathable and doesn’t retain odors like oil-based fabrics, you can save your clothes a few trips to the hamper between wears. Not doing laundry as often is awesome.

Some of the primary benefits of cotton clothing:
  • Cotton clothing is soft and easily stretches, making it a comfortable fabric to wear. Due to its soft hand and comfort, it is often used in underwear, pajamas, undershirts and more.
  • Cotton fabric is breathable and transmits moisture away from the body and is absorbent and removes liquid from the skin, like a towel.
  • Cotton clothing protects against from heat in the summer and cold in the winter by providing thermal insulation as the cotton fabric traps air between the fabric fibers.
  • Cotton is hypoallergenic and does not irritate skin, it is used in medical products like bandages and gauze, and is the fabric of choice when it comes to baby apparel. Cotton fabric rarely causes allergic reactions and wearing cotton is often recommended for those with skin allergies.
  • Cotton has a high tensile strength, making it strong, durable and less likely to rip or tear than some of the other textile fiber options. It is actually stronger when wet, which helps it withstand many washings.
