Properties of cotton
Scientists have bred varieties of colored cotton for cultivation in the temperate-continental climate of the Volga region. Grades have the following colors: khaki, light coffee, camel, green, Fiber Fox (Fox color) and dark brown.
Colored cotton obtained by the method of classical breeding (biotechnology methods or methods of genetic engineering were not applied).
From cotton get cotton, which is the raw material for the production of cotton fabrics in the textile industry.
The use of colored cotton in the textile industry reduces the cost of dyeing of fabrics, this cotton quality and the cost is not much different from the classic white cotton. In addition, it is considered environmentally friendly, which is very important: according to various reports, 15 percent of the world’s population suffers from allergies to dyes.
– has a high ability to absorb moisture. Fiber if swelling increases by about 40 % by volume,
– when wet strength of cotton fabrics is not reduced, but rather increased by about 15 %,
– strength is comparable to silk, but inferior in strength superior to flax and wool.
– be sensitive to prolonged exposure to light after 940 hours of exposure to sunlight the strength of cotton is reduced by half
– be sensitive to prolonged exposure to high temperatures after three days of heating to 150 °C strength reduced to half.
– has good thermal insulation characteristics due to the hollow structure of the fibers,
– cotton fabric without treatment easily collapse and wear away. Requires the addition of synthetic fibers,
– responds well to heat treatment,
– clothing made of cotton fabrics has excellent hygroscopic and breathable properties thanks to which it perfectly absorbs sweat, does not stick to the body, allows the skin breath and creates an optimum microclimate,
– cotton clothing visokaviciene, comfortable to wear, does not cause allergic reactions and skin irritations, suitable for socks of all ages.
