What is cotton?
Cotton is a material that is characterized by a soft texture that gently envelops you. It is made of soft hair-like fibers (seed hairs) to protect the seeds, so it does not irritate or feel rough when it hits the skin. In addition, the rounded fiber tips are less likely to get caught on the skin, giving you a smooth feel.
It feels better than chemical materials, and you can enjoy a smooth texture. In addition, among natural materials, cotton is particularly resistant to water, so it can be washed repeatedly.
And cotton has the property of absorbing and wicking away perspiration. The cross section of the cotton is macaroni-like and the inside is hollow, so it can absorb plenty of moisture.
- Points to note about cotton -
Cotton has the property that the thread that has been absorbed and expanded during washing will shrink back to its original state during drying. In some cases, it may shrink or wrinkle as the size changes.
However, shrinkage can be suppressed by proper drying and drying methods. Take it out as soon as possible after washing and dehydration, shake it up and down and left and right to remove wrinkles before drying, and pat it lightly to smooth out wrinkles and shrinkage after drying.
Please note that the color may fade or change when washing.
