What are some advantages of cotton fabric?

  1. Moisture Wicking

Cotton fiber has good wicking properties. Under normal circumstances, the fiber can absorb moisture in the surrounding atmosphere, and its moisture content is 8-10%, so it making people feel soft and not stiff. If the humidity of the cotton cloth is increased and the surround temperature is high, the water content in the fibers will evaporate completely, keeping the fabric in a state of water balance and making people feel comfortable.

2. Warmth

Since cotton fiber is a poor conductor of heat and electricity, the coefficient of thermal conductivity is extremely low, and because cotton fiber itself has porosity and high elasticity, a large amount of air can accumulate between fibers, and air is also a poor conductor of heat and electricity, so pure Cotton fiber textiles have good warmth and people feel warm when wearing cotton fabrics.

3.Heat resistance

Pure cotton fabric has good heat resistance, and when it is below 110°C, it will only cause water to evaporate on fabrics and will not damage fibers. Therefore, cotton fabrics are worn, washing or printing at normal temperature, have no bad effect on fabrics. It is more washable and wearable.

4.Alkali resistance

The cotton fiber has greater resistance to alkali, and the cotton fiber is not damaged in the alkali solution. This property is beneficial to be used to dye, wash, print or other processed on cotton textiles.


Cotton fiber is a natural fiber whose main component is fibre. The cotton fabric has been prove in many aspects, is without any irritation or negative effects for skins. The long-term wear is beneficial to the human body.
