Properties of Cotton Fibers: 

Properties of cotton fiber can be separated into two sections, one is according to physical structure and another is utilizing methodology.

A. According to physical structure: 

Length of cotton fiber: 
Physically the individual cotton fibers comprise of a solitary long tubular cell. Its length is around 1200-1500 times than its expansiveness. Length of cotton fiber shifts from 16mm to 52 mm relying on the kind of cotton.
Indian cotton- 16-25 mm
American cotton- 20-30 mm
Ocean Island- 38-52 mm
Egyptian cotton- 30-38 mm

Fineness of cotton fiber: 
Longer the fiber, better the fiber if there should arise an occurrence of cotton fiber. It is communicated in term of decitex and it fluctuates from 1.1 to2.3 decitex.
Indian= 2.2-2.3dtex
American= 2.1-2.2 dtex
Egyptian= 1.2-1.8 dtex
Ocean Island= 1.0-1.1 dtex

Fineness may be all the more if there should arise an occurrence of youthful fiber. So it is important to express development with fineness.

Quality and augmentation of cotton fiber: 
Cotton fiber is decently among common fibers in connection to perseverance which is 3-3.5g/dtex. Its elasticity is in the middle of fleece and silk fiber however drawback is low augmentation at break which is 5-7%.

Flexible properties of cotton:
Recuperation from disfigurement of cotton fiber, yarn or fabric from connected burden is low. By applying warmth it can't be accomplished. This property can be accomplished by -1.Chemical treatment to enhance wrinkle recuperation, however the issue is the materials get to be harsher because of compound treatment 2. mixing or blending of cotton with flexible fiber, e.g. polyester, mix proportion relies on upon the end utilization of the fabric. The beginning modulus is decently high=0

5 g/dtex (wool=0.25 g/dtex)

Cross-segment of cotton fiber is some what ribbon like. The cell divider is fairly thin and the lumen possesses around two-third of the whole broadness and appears extremely noticeable in enraptured light. Fiber cross-segment gets to be round when mercerized.

Cotton fiber is genuinely short, fine and rich white color. Color of the fiber relies on upon soil of development. By including chemicals in the dirt, color of the cotton fiber may be differed.

Cotton fiber is pretty much twisted on its longitudinal pivot which taxi not be seen from outside is called convolution. The twist in the fiber does not to be nonstop in one heading i.e. on the off chance that at first right course, then left bearing. This property of cotton fiber helps in spinning.

B. According to utilizing methodology: 

Cotton fiber has substantial indistinct part and this is the reason the air can be in and out through cotton fiber. Along these lines, the fabric made by cotton fiber is truly agreeable to utilize.

Delicate Hand: 
Cotton fiber is an excessive amount of customary fiber and if appropriately ginned; this fiber can be the best delicate hand feeling fiber amongst the others.

Cotton fiber has high retentiveness force and this is the reason this fiber can be passed on appropriately and with no provocation.

Great Color Retention: 
In the event that the printing is connected on cotton fiber, it appears it doesn't spread the color outside the configuration. So printing efficiency is great on cotton fiber.

Machine Washable & Dry Cleanable: 
It is seen that a few fibers can't be dried or washed because of its affectability and feeble speed properties yet in the event of Cotton fiber you will have extensive number of choices to pick. You can undoubtedly wash the cotton made fabric by machines and even you will have the capacity to dry this fiber by utilizing electronic drier.

Great Strength: 
In the event that you need to look for a normal quality which may be sufficient for you; then cotton fiber can be your definitive decision. The quality of cotton fiber is great.

Cotton Fiber Drapes Well: 
The wrap capacity of cotton fiber is great. You can utilize the cotton fiber made fabric in any sort of wear which needs more adaptability and curtains.

Sewing & Handling Is Easy: 
The sewing efficiency on Cotton made fabric is less demanding and agreeable than other fiber. This is the reason the interest of cotton made fabric is higher in everywhere throughout the world.

Uses of Cotton Fiber: 
Cotton fiber is an adaptable fiber which has wide mixed bag of uses. Be that as it may, the Cotton fiber is for the most part utilized on the Apparel Industry to make the wearing fabric like Sweaters, Skirts, Shirts, Swimwear, Kids wear, Blouses, Pants, Hosiery and to make other kind of dresses.
