Cotton is much more than a conventional fabric. Coming from the cottonseed, the white mass is cleaned and spun into cotton yarns that are woven to make the fabric. It has an amazing ability to absorb moisture taking away the wet and uncomfortable feeling from your skin. 100% cotton fabric is great for formal and informal wear at all times in summer.

3. Muslin

Pure muslin is a plain-woven cotton fabric of different weights. The best muslin is almost weightless and can be folded into very small folds fitting into your palm. The quality of the cotton and the way of weaving the fabric makes it different from plain cotton fabric. Specific soil conditions and temperature are necessary for the growth of muslin-grade cotton.
