Six years ago, I was given the topic “Types of Cotton Material” for publication on eHow.com. It was originally published on April 20, 2010. It is no longer published on eHow or anywhere else so I am free to publish it here.
Cotton provides consumers with a variety of material choices year round. Light-weight cotton keeps consumers cool during the summer. Heavily woven, thicker cotton provides consumers with warmer clothing during the winter months. Cotton gives manufacturers a versatile material which can be woven into fabrics with various textures and weights. Light or heavy, cotton fabrics are usually durable, versatile and easily laundered.
Stores stock their spring and summer shelves with gingham cotton. Its light-weight, plain-woven characteristics provide a cool fabric for warm weather clothing. Commonly found in a variety of styles and colors such as checks, plaids and stripes, gingham cotton fabrics satisfy a variety of tastes. Consumers also like the fact that gingham cotton is easily laundered, durable and blends well with other fabrics.
