The cotton plant is an herbaceous plant from the mallow family. Basically up to 51 species are known, but only four cultivated species are used for industrial cultivation. After flowering, the cotton forms green capsules in which the seeds grow. When these are ripe, the now brown capsule bursts and the seeds become visible with their white seed hairs. The well-known cotton fiber is obtained from these trichomes. Usually these plants are perennial, but they are only used annual for the benefit of cheaper harvesting methods and higher yields. They are characterized by high tear resistance, which is even better when wet. The cotton fiber can absorb up to 65% of its own weight in water, but it does need some time to dry again. Since cotton has shown itself to be skin-friendly and with a low allergy potential, it is particularly interesting for the textile industry.
Advantages of polyester fabrics
The industrially produced synthetic continuous threads impress with their special properties. They are characterized by allergy-neutral properties and ease of care that modern clothing cannot be imagined without. The fabric is wrinkle-free, tear-resistant, weather-resistant and can hardly soak up with water. As a result, the polyester threads are predestined for the production of fabrics for sportswear that, for example, has to dry quickly or is water-repellent as rainwear.
