Cotton has a lot to recommend it. It is pleasant to touch. As far as I know, nobody is allergic to it. It is available in many weights and many beautiful colours.

Cotton fibers grow in seed pods of cotton plants. They are attached to seeds and in a non-cultivated setting they help to disperse the seeds.

Cotton has been spun and woven into fabric for at least 8000 years.
