Cotton is from a plant called gossypium. The cotton fibre grows around the seed pod of the plant; the colour of the soft fibre varies from white to a greyish yellow. Once the plant has been harvested it is spun into thread or yarn. It is mostly used to make cotton fabric used for clothes, socks and underwear etc. It is a light and breathable fabric making it ideal for bed linen also.

The cotton fiber is picked from the plant in the summer and taken to a cotten gin where it is cleaned by removing leaves, twigs, dirt and other debris.  The seeds are removed from the cotton fibers and are used to oil and cattle feed.  The fibers are washed and spun into thread which is then woven into cotton cloth.  This cloth is then used to make cotton clothing.

Cotton is planted in the spring.
Harvesting occurs once the boll (pod where the cotton fibres grow) has split open.
The leaves are removed and then it is machine harvested.
The cotton is then made into bales to be stored.
Then its spun into thread or yarn.
