The Cotton Collection
Why is cotton so popular? Cotton fabric is popular because it's easy to care for and comfortable year-round. In hot, humid weather, cotton “breathes.” As the body perspires, cotton fibers absorb the moisture and release it on the surface of the fabric, so it evaporates.
What is the best cotton in the World? All these factors have resulted in Egyptian cotton being by far the best cotton in the world. Fabrics made of Egyptian Cotton are softer, finer and last longer than any other cotton in the world.
Which fabric absorbs moisture the best? Cotton: Quality, lightweight cotton is one of the most breathable fabrics and offers some airflow for drying out the dampness. Because cotton is a natural fiber, it absorbs moisture rather than repelling it (forcing the moisture to sit on your skin).
Cotton's Absorbent Qualities? Cotton can trap approximately 0.3 gallons of water per pound of cotton, cotton garments can carry to up to 27 times their weight in water. That kind of absorption is staggering for such a common fabric.
