The seed of cotton is called 'cotton seed'.The pod that contains the cotton seed and the cotton fiber is called a 'boll'.

The source of the cotton fibre is the cotton plant which bears a seed pod which contains the cotton seed and the cotton fibre. This is a very ingenious packaging that nature has devised for the cotton seed. The seed is first wrapped in cotton fibre and then it is covered in a harder outer pod cover. It grows in places with high summer temperatures and humidity.

Cotton is part of the seed of the cotton plant. The cotton is white fluffy strands attached to the cotton seed that allows the seed to catch the wind and be dispersed. We collect these fluffy bundles just as the pod opens and scrape off the seed, keeping the cotton fluff which is combed and twisted into cotton thread.
