Cotton is a natural fabric and even though we are loaded with synthetic fabrics nowadays, cotton is the number one choice when looking for a comfortable durable fabric. Cotton has been the fabric of choice since around 5000 BC! Moreover, cotton is extremely versatile: It can be used in clothing, for cleaning, or as home linens such as curtains, throws, blankets, or towels. Depending on the style of weaving or knitting, it can also be found in cushion covers or zero waste scrubbers.
Cotton is versatile
You can choose cotton fabric to wear and use for almost any occasion; you can find cotton fabric used in every piece of clothing and home linens, in addition to bed linen and day covers.
Depending on the knitted or woven fabric design, cotton makes cushion covers, bedding blankets, or even zero waste kitchen or bathroom scrubs.
Cotton is strong and durable.
Unlike other fibers that require delicate handling, cotton is extremely durable and can be easily washed to get rid of stains. Good quality cotton does not lose its color or woven shape over time so your day cover, picnic blanket, or beach towel will look fresh even after a few washes.
Cotton keeps you cool
One of the most important benefits of cotton fabric is breathability. That is why cotton sheets are the most preferred among bedding materials. Wearing cotton allows your skin to breathe and it keeps you cool during hot weather with its moisture-wicking properties – imagine a tropical summer night where you just want to sleep without anything but still long for the comfort of a blanket. Cotton blankets are your number one choice to cover you lightly.
Cotton is odor-free
Cotton doesn't retain odor, and it is an ideal choice for those with sensitive skin. You can save a few washes because your cotton blankets and covers don’t need to be washed as much. This is especially great for beach towels and bath towels. Any chance to do less laundry is lovely, and you can save energy, water, and time by using cotton products.
Cotton is low maintenance.
Cotton is a naturally occurring material that requires little care. To remove the stains, all you need to do is use an appropriate stain remover on tough stains and leave the rest in your washing machine. Unless otherwise specified, the cotton fabric doesn’t require dry cleaning, and you can simply hang your products on the rack.
