All About Cotton
Who doesn't love Cotton, right?
It's soft, versatile, and among the natural fibers that we've been wearing all our lives. Our founder, Pamela, is always searching for variety when creating new collections and fabric selection is no exception! Some of the softest blankets we've made at Sheltered Co. are made with 100% Cotton or a Cotton blend—today we're talking about the former!
We love Cotton for how versatile it is and, because it's such a well-known and popular fabric, we come across it frequently in our deadstock searches.
Cotton tends to be sturdier than other fabrics—in its purest form it's often crisp. Cotton is a natural fiber, making it the most breathable. Like a fine wine, it gets better and softer with age aka wash and wear. You can think of our Cotton blankets like a classic tee! A brand new tee (think something in the Hanes-universe) is stiff, crisp, and clean straight out of the package but with time becomes broken-in and dang near perfect.
