What Houzz contributors are saying:
Cotton 101: The BasicsStaple. When multiple cotton fibers are twisted together, the result is a smooth, strong thread that can be woven into fabric.

This is different than so-called filament fibers, such as silk (which comes from unraveled silkworm cocoon) and polyester, which have an almost indefinite length.
