When we speak of cotton, the first thought that comes to our mind is the fact that this fabric is breathable. Staying in a country that experiences tropical weather all year round means that we often end up choosing this fabric on days we need to step out in the heat – even if it is for a split second!
For people who prefer to wear natural materials, cotton is the way to go. The practice and availability of organic cotton is growing every year. It is biodegradable and hypoallergenic – making it one of the best options for people with dry skin.
Cotton fabrics are breathable and transmit moisture away from the body. Like towels, they are absorbent and remove liquid from the skin. Cotton allows you to remain comfortable as you exercise, keeping moisture from building up between your skin and clothing. The International Forum for Cotton Promotion states that cotton can absorb up to one-fifth of its weight in water before feeling damp, which we think is quite the feat.
