Linen is labor-intensive to manufacture, but when it is made into garments, it is valued for its coolness and freshness in hot weather.
Cotton is a soft, fluffy staple fiber that grows in a boll, or protective capsule, around the seeds of cotton plants of the genus Gossypium. The fiber is almost pure cellulose. Under natural conditions, the cotton bolls will tend to increase the dispersion of the seeds.
The plant is a shrub native to tropical and subtropical regions around the world, including the Americas, Africa, and India. The greatest diversity of wild cotton species is found in Mexico, followed by Australia and Africa. Â Cotton was independently domesticated in the Old and New Worlds.
The fiber is most often spun into yarn or thread
