Cotton/Organic cotton, CO
Cotton is a natural fibre and cotton fibres are obtained from the seeds of the cotton plant. Cotton absorbs well and it has a soft and pleasant feel.
Cotton can be washed in high temperatures, typically in 60°C. Cotton shrinks somewhat in the wash, which is good to take into consideration when manufacturing the products.
Cotton is suited for many purposes and therefore it is the most widely produced textile fibre in the world. Cotton is also the most common raw material in knittings made by Orneule.
Organic cotton is organically produced cotton. In the cultivation of organic cotton only organic fertilizers are used. No pesticides or chemicals, which would make the leaves fall off the cotton plants, are used. Because of the organic cultivation, the soil stays fertile and the environment will not be burdened with chemicals.
