Combed Cotton 
Combed cotton is an extremely soft form of cotton, made by specially treating cotton fibres before they are spun into yarn. This extremely soft, strong material is ideal for making clothing which will be worn against the skin. 
How do we do this? 
The cotton combing process removes short cotton fibers resulting in a finer, stronger and more compact cotton. The combing process removes some 15% of the volume of the cotton, leaving longer, straighter fibres which are even and aligned. That’s why combed cotton is sought after for quality fabrics with high thread counts. Combed cotton is exceptionally comfortable to wear.
Combed cotton is higher-quality and softer than ordinary cotton, it lasts longer and is ideal for young skin. 
•         100% Combed Cotton
•         Delicate machine wash. Dry flat in shade to retain shape and colour.

What is a Micron?
A micron is a micrometre and is the measurement used in wool classing to measure the diameter of a wool fibre. Finer = better - the smaller the number, the finer and softer the fibre.
