Lightweight

Lightweight cotton fabrics work well for blouses, dresses and tops as they are easily draped and sewn. Cotton has long been noted for its comfortable, soft hand and hydrophilic properties. With its amicable breathability, lightweight cotton not only has a high retention of color, but for prints well. Although lightweight, cotton remains strong due to the mercerization process that also improves a cotton’s luster.
