The vegetable fiber cotton is of more value to mankind than any one of the other textile fibers, on account of its cheapness, its availability, and its varied, usefulness. The materials made from it range from the finest threads, mulls and laces, to heavy blankets and sail cloths. Its value is enhanced by its resemblance, after special treatment to linen, wool, or silk, by which warmth and attractive appearance may be gained at small cost. The supply of cotton usually equals the demand, so that the finished product may be put on the market at reasonable prices.
