Cotton yarn is one of the most common natural yarns that has actively growing popularity.
Cotton fiber represents a capsule with a wavy flattened tube with lumen. Wavy fibers give the strength of cotton thread and a hollow channel provide with a reduced thermal conductivity. Due to this the products made of the cotton retain heat better than linen, so we recommend wearing cotton clothes in a cool summer and warm autumn weather. Nevertheless special treatment and addition of other fibers will significantly expand the range of the basic properties of cotton thread.
Cotton fiber has inherent hygienic characteristics, namely porosity, breathability, softness, strength, high ability for dyeing. Moreover, cotton fiber is relatively not expensive.
There are various ways to improve the quality of cotton yarn. One of them is mercerization. This enables getting rid of unnecessary villus and making thread smooth. After such a treatment, cotton becomes shiny and silky, very soft, better dyed, becomes tougher and more hard-wearing.
Another technology enables obtaining of kable thread with a matt surface, softer than mercerized thread, but with the same strength and wear resistance. Cotton thread may also be of different thickness and relative twist of yarn as well as spinning process.
Cotton yarn due to its low elasticity "does not like" ribbed knitting and bulk patterns. Cotton thread is often part of the mixed yarns, which makes it possible to emphasize its advantages, improve yarn quality and expand the creativeness.
Fine cotton yarn is perfect for knitting of all kinds of laces: currently very trendy Irish, Bruges and ribbon laces, openwork for weightless, flowing dresses, shawls, boleros; interior items: napkins, tablecloths, bedspreads.
The thread of medium thickness enables knitting of any kind of clothes, such as casual and elegant evening dresses.
Ribbon yarn allows surprising with spectacular and original models, and natural mercerized cotton will perfectly suit for soft, pleasant and bright children clothes.
High ability of cotton for dyeing will provide a variety of colors and shades, as well as yarn fantasy colors, making cotton products even more interesting and attractive.
