One of the best ways to beat the scorching summer heat is to opt for clothes that are made up of cotton. Its scientific name is Gossypium spp. and it is a soft, fluffy, staple fiber, which grows around its seeds, in the form of a 'boll'. It is one of the most widely used fabric in the world because it is multipurpose in nature and can be used to make garments, curtains, bed sheets, carpets, and various other fabrics.
Sea island cotton is popular for its smooth fibers and the silky texture is because it is often mixed with silk. It is used to manufacture garments that are made up of an expensive brand. So, whenever a garment's label reads 'sea island cotton', the piece might get a little heavy on your pockets.
