Cotton fabric is an all-natural fabric made from cotton yarn and is the most used natural fiber fabric in clothing today. The cotton yarn, which is spun from the cotton boll fiber (that’s not a spelling mistake!) of the cotton plant, is typically knitted or woven into cotton fabrics. As the cotton fabric is incredibly versatile, it can be woven into a variety of compositions - the 2 most common being plain weave and twill. Other common cotton fabrics include gauze, voile, velvet, and flannel. Cotton fibers can also be found in blends with other natural fibers as well as with synthetic fibers. Popular blends include poly/cotton, cotton/linen, and cotton/silk.
Almost every part of the cotton plant is used after harvest - including the lint, seed, stalks, and hulls.
Grown in tropical and subtropical regions all around the globe, cotton production accounts for roughly 2.5% of the world's arable land. With a rich and at times controversial history, cotton has been cultivated for thousands of years and has been used specifically for fabric since prehistoric times. However, it was not until the 5th century, when the cotton gin was first invented in India, that cotton became affordable and attained widespread use. Today cotton production is found mainly in the southern USA, Uzbekistan, China, and India.
Roughly 60% of women's clothing and 75% of men's clothing is made from either 100% fabric or some kind of cotton blend.
After the cotton bolls - which are actually the fruit of the cotton plant - are harvested from the field they undergo a process called “ginning”. Ginning separates the cotton lint from the cottonseed. Once separated, the cotton lint is pressed into massive bales which are then shipped to textile mills. At the textile mills, the lint bales are spun into a yarn that is then either woven or knitted into cotton fabric. Woven fabrics are made on looms where 2 sets of fibers are threaded crossways to create the structure of the fabric. Knitted fabrics are most commonly made on circular looms where are looped and secured to each other (essentially similar to knitting by hand). Knit fibers have ingrained stretch due to the loops they are made up from whereas woven fabrics require the addition of elastane (or spandex) to create the stretch.
