1 Hygroscopicity: Cotton fiber has good hygroscopicity. Under normal conditions, the fiber can absorb moisture in the surrounding atmosphere. Its moisture content is 8-10%, so it touches human skin and makes people feel soft. Not stiff. If the humidity of cotton is increased and the ambient temperature is high, the amount of water contained in the fibers will evaporate completely, keeping the fabric in a state of water balance and making people feel comfortable.
2 Moisturizing: As the cotton fiber is a poor conductor of heat and electricity, the heat transfer coefficient is extremely low, and because the cotton fiber itself has porosity and high elasticity, a large amount of air can accumulate between the fibers. The air is also a bad conductor of heat and electricity. Therefore, pure cotton fiber textiles have good moisture retention, and wearing cotton fabrics makes people feel warm.
3 Heat resistance: The heat resistance of cotton fabric is good. When the temperature is lower than 110°C, it will only cause the moisture on the fabric to evaporate and will not damage the fiber. Therefore, the pure cotton fabric is worn at room temperature, and the washing and dyeing are not applicable to the fabric. The impact, thereby improving the washability and wear resistance of pure cotton fabrics.
4 Alkali-tolerance: The cotton fiber has greater resistance to alkali. The cotton fiber in the alkali solution does not damage the fiber. This property is beneficial to the washing of the pollution after taking, disinfection and impurities, but also to the cotton textiles. Dyeing, printing, and various processes to produce more new varieties of cotton.
5 Hygiene: Cotton fiber is a natural fiber, its main component is cellulose, there are a small amount of waxy substances and nitrogen and pectin. The cotton fabric has been inspected and practiced in many aspects. The fabric is in contact with the skin without any irritation or negative effects. The long-term wear is beneficial to the human body and harmless, and the sanitary performance is good. The defect of cotton is that it is easy to pick up the hair particles. The emerging high-density cotton on the market has eliminated these concerns. According to reports, this tightly-structured cotton cloth is soft, comfortable, and resistant to washing. After many years of use, it is still delicate, smooth, clean, free from hairiness, and does not shrink or bleach.
