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.
