Cotton FAQ - What is muslin cotton, long staple cotton, and more!

Buying 100% Cotton helps the earth!  Cotton, a natural-fiber drought-tolerant plant, is considered an “essential crop”.

Cotton Cleans the Air! Cotton is a natural-fiber drought-tolerant plant that’s fibers capture carbon dioxide (the primary GHG contributing to climate change) from the atmosphere as they grow. Just 1 acre of no-till cotton stores 350 lbs more of atmospheric carbon than it emits during cotton production, meaning that cotton’s contribution to the carbon equation is net negative!!

Cotton is primarily fed by rain! Most of the water used to produce cotton is naturally occurring from rainfall. In the U.S., 65% of cotton acreage doesn’t use irrigation. Just 1 acre-inch of rain is needed for modern cotton varieties to yield approx. 50 lbs of lint and 75 lbs of seed (enough to make more than 170 t-shirts and feed more than 10 cows).

Muslin Comfort’s manufacturer is waterless! We have our own on-site water recycling facility and use recycled water in our manufacturing process, saving billions of gallons of water.

Cotton is biodegradable! Since cotton is a natural fiber, it breaks down in water in just over 3 months end a rate similar to Oak leaves.

Cotton is a Renewable Resource! Cotton is a renewable resource that can be grown year after year without depleting the soil or damaging the ecosystem.

Cotton is eco-friendly - 100% natural. Our muslin cotton bedding, bath & resort wear is made from 100% natural long staple cotton fibers that create less emissions than synthetics and are more biodegradable. Our organic muslin blanket is made from 100% pure organic combed cotton, which makes it even better for skin and soil, as no pesticides are used.

We💗  ORGANIC! Organic cotton consumes fewer chemicals and resources compared to regular cotton. It uses 62% less energy and 88% less water. It does not strain rivers and seas as 80% of organic cotton is rain-fed. We are so pleased to be able to bring you an organic version of our adult muslin blanket!
