A “low-waste” plant
Unlike many other plants, almost all parts of the Australian cotton plant are used in one way or another. This includes the cottonseed, lint, linters, stalks, and even the seed hulls – in our current drought situation, cotton seed is much in demand for stock feed.
A fabric almost anyone can appreciate
Cotton fibres are hypoallergenic, meaning most individuals – even those with severe skin allergies – can wear clothing made of cotton. It’s so hypoallergenic that it’s used in many medical products like gauze and bandages! It’s a natural fabric that contains no chemicals.
