Characteristics of Cotton Fabric


Cotton cloth is a cloth woven from cotton yarn. Is a general term for all types of cotton textiles. It is mostly used for fashion, casual wear, underwear and shirts. Its advantages are easy to keep warm, soft and close-fitting, moisture absorption and breathability, so it is very popular with the public.

Features of cotton fabric:


Cotton fiber has good hygroscopicity. Under normal circumstances, the fiber can absorb moisture into the surrounding atmosphere. Its moisture content is 8-10%, so it touches human skin and makes people feel soft and Not stiff. If the humidity of the cotton cloth increases and the surrounding temperature is high, all the water contained in the fibers will evaporate and disperse, so that the fabric will maintain a water balance and make people feel comfortable.

②Moisturizing property:
Because cotton fiber is a poor conductor of heat and electricity, the thermal conductivity is extremely low, and because of its porosity and high elasticity, cotton fiber can store a large amount of air between the fibers, and air is a poor conductor of heat and electricity. Therefore, cotton fiber textiles have good moisture retention, and wearing cotton clothing makes people feel warm.

③Heat resistance:
Pure cotton fabrics have good heat resistance. When the temperature is lower than 110 ℃, it will only cause the water on the fabric to evaporate and will not damage the fibers, hereby improving the washing and wearing resistance of pure cotton fabrics.

④Alkali resistance:
Cotton fibers have greater resistance to alkalis. Cotton fibers are not damaged in alkaline solutions. This property is good fort washing and disinfecting clothing, and it is also good for dyeing and printing cotton textiles. And various processes to produce more new varieties of cotton weaving and clothing styles.


Cotton fiber is natural fiber and its main component is cellulose. Pure cotton fabrics have been inspected and practiced in various aspects, and the fabrics have no irritation and no negative effects when in contact with the skin. Long-wearing is beneficial to the human body and has good hygienic properties.
