Cotton is one of the oldest known fibers and remains a staple in our industry today. Mass production began in the 1700 with the invention of the cotton gin. This fiber is so popular because of it's soft and versatile; it accepts dyes beautifully providing bright, rich shades. It's breathable so it's perfect to wear three seasons out of the year. And most of all, it's extremely absorbant, providing comfortable knits that wick moisture from the body.
