The Cotton

Cotton soon swept aside all other textile fibres that had previously been used in clothing. The advantages it offered were obvious: it was easier to work and dye, the low cost of raw materials, together with its excellent hygiene and sanitary properties - it maintained body temperature and it was breathable. All this meant that the mechanisation of cotton production, which culminated in the mid-nineteenth century, came about before that of wool.
