Natural Fibers

Natural Fiber-Cotton

Natural fibers are fibers that are made out of natural materials that come from plants, animals, or minerals. There are two types of natural fibers: animal-based and plant-based. Animal-based fibers include silk and wool, while plant-based natural fibers include cotton, linen, jute, and bamboo.

Natural fibers are popular for many different reasons:

  • Absorbent: Most natural fibers have a moisture-wicking ability which allows ventilation through the fabric. This means dampness is drawn away from the skin, leaving you feeling dry. Fabrics such as cotton and linen will help keep you cool and comfortable.
  • Eco-friendly: Natural fibers usually have a smaller environmental impact than synthetic fibers because natural fibers do not use as many chemicals during the production process.
  • Durable: Due to the structure of cellulose, which makes up natural materials, most plant-based fibers are very strong. Animal-based fibers, like silk and wool, are also strong.
  • Insulated: natural fibers make great insulators. The cellulose structure traps heat effectively.
  • Hypoallergenic: fabrics such as linen, cotton, and silk are naturally hypoallergenic. They have natural anti-bacterial properties, resist mildew, and block UV radiation, making them ideal for people with sensitive skin or those prone to allergies. This makes it ideal to be used in clothing and textiles for newborns and babies.
  • Organic: Some natural fibers can be grown organically. It might be more expensive to produce and purchase, but it ensures that no harmful chemicals and pesticides are used in its production.

Cotton fabric is made from plant fibers from the cotton plant. Cotton is primarily composed of cellulose, an insoluble organic compound crucial to plant structure, and is a soft and fluffy material. Cotton fabric is soft and durable and often used to make t-shirts and undergarments. Some examples of different types of cotton fabric are organic cotton, denim, and canvas. Cotton fiber is particularly well-suited for apparel and home end uses because of its strength, durability, comfort, and temperature resistance.
