Cotton is a natural fiber that is grown in warm climates. The plant is part of the Oleaginous family, which includes such plants as linen, hemp, and jute.
The cotton plant grows to about three feet in height and produces a white fluffy material that is used to make a variety of products including shirts, underwear, towels, and other cloth items.
Cotton is a natural fiber that is soft and absorbent. It is often used in medical applications, such as bandages and gauze because it can absorb a lot of liquid.
Cotton is also a popular material for clothing because it is comfortable to wear and does not irritate the skin.
