Raw Cotton

Combed Cotton | Carded Yarn

Raw Cotton is a soft, fluffy staple fibre that grows in a ball, or protective capsule, around the seeds of cotton plants of the genus Gossypium. The fibre is almost pure cellulose. Under natural condition, the cotton balls will tend to increase the dispersion of the seeds.

 

The fibre is most often spun into yarn or thread and used to make a soft, breathable textile. The use of cotton for fabric is known to date to prehistoric times; fragments of cotton fabric dated from 5000 BC have been excavated in Mexico and the Indus Valley Civilization (modern day Pakistan). Although cultivated since antiquity, it was the invention of the cotton gin that so lowered the cost of production that led to its widespread use, and it is the most widely used natural fibre cloth in clothing today.

 

India has a tropical climate with different types of soils spread across. This ensures cultivation of cotton ranging between 12 mm to 36 mm in length. The different varieties of cotton are classified in three categories on the basis of the length of the fibre. The popular varieties are given below:

Cotton ginning

Cotton is Roller or Saw Ginned depending on varieties and ginning practices. At the ginnery, cotton fibre is separated from seeds while preserving the quality of the cotton.In ginning, cotton is now dried, impurities removed (plant parts and field trash) and fibres straightened. Saw ginned cotton is more uniform and cleaner, and has higher productivity than roller ginned cotton.

Baling/Packaging

Hydraulic pressing machines are used to compress ginned cotton into bales of 160-170 kgs. These are wrapped in white cotton cloth with 10-12 plastic straps to hold the bale. A 1X40FCL container can load up to 150 bales and approximately25 tons of cotton.
