Generally, cotton fabric has good moisture absorption and heat resistance, and is comfortable to wear. Certain garments in industries that require high moisture absorption can be processed with pure cotton fabrics. For example, summer school uniforms.


Cotton lining pocket cloth has good moisture absorption. Under normal conditions, the fiber can absorb moisture into the surrounding atmosphere, and its moisture content is 8-10%, so it can touch human skin and make people feel soft. Not stiff. If the humidity of the cotton cloth increases and the ambient temperature rises, the moisture in the fiber will all evaporate and disperse, so that the fabric maintains a water balance and makes people feel comfortable.

Keep warm

Because the cotton pocket fabric is a poor conductor of heat and electricity, the heat transfer coefficient is extremely low, and because the cotton fiber itself is porous and highly elastic, a large amount of air will accumulate between the fibers. Air is heat and electricity. Bad conductor. Therefore, cotton fiber textiles have good warmth retention, and wearing cotton fabrics will make people feel warm.
