Cotton is a natural fibre and is one of the most used fabrics in the textile industry. It is known for its absorbent property which makes the fabric feel cool, making it suitable for the summer. To make cotton suitable for winter, the fibres will be roughened. Cotton is a very strong fabric so it can be used for clothes that are worn and washed often. Cotton is easy to sew, great for starters and is used for making trousers, t-shirts, sweaters, shirts... Should you be feeling doubly creative, “Prêt à teindre” or “ready to dye” is raw cotton that can be dyed in different colours.
