Cotton Fabric, most simply put, is the fabric that breathes. Made from a soft, fluffy staple fiber, Cotton grows in a boll around the seeds of the plant. The fibers of cotton are hollow and upon close inspection resemble twisted ribbon. These fibers are usually woven or knit into fabric by means of the two most common methods: plain weaves & twill weaves.
