Cotton has been used in fabrics for over 4.000 years, it is still widely used both alone and in combination with other fibers. Egyptian and Sea Island cottons have longer fiber strands and fabrics produced from them are extremely fine and have a sheen and silky feel. Cotton should be washed, dried and ironed before using to be certain any potential shrinkage has been eliminated. Cotton thread shoud be used to sew cotton fabrics. The size thread should be matched to the fineness of the fabric you are sewing. Cotton fabrics can be very heavy, as in rugs, or very sheer and transparent.
