How does algodon cotton differ from normal cotton?
Algodon cotton is made with fibers that are about 0.06 inches in diameter, while regular cotton is around 1.5 – 3″ in diameter, which makes algodon much softer and easier to process because less pressure or force is needed to get the fibers through the filter given below:
Algodón Cotton’s characteristic of being considerably finer in diameter than traditional varieties of cotton also plays a major role for it being used in a number of industrial applications as well. And from an end-user perspective, this translates into greater comfort when wearing said garments as well as making these garments require less time and effort to launder them. But there are other particularities that distinguish algodon from its counterparts like durabilida,d another cotton variety from the country’s local production.
Durabilida Cotton is a very well-known and valued staple in Guatemalan textile industry, mainly because of its resistance to abrasion, but it shares this quality uniquely with Algodon Cotton on account of their similar diameters. However, while durabilida has the ability to retain a considerable amount of its strength when wet, algodon Cotton is highly susceptible to damage when it comes in contact with moisture.
