How is a cotton plant turned into fabric?

Cotton plants bloom when they mature, just as other plants and flowers do, usually in early fall. The bloom on the cotton plant looks pretty much like the cotton balls you buy for applying cosmetics, antiseptics, etc. But at the time the cotton is harvested, the cotton has seeds in it, which have to be removed. This is done at a cotton gin, a process commonly known as "cotton ginning". The cotton is then spun into a fine thread, then woven into fabric, much like other types of fabrics (silk, wool, etc.). The cotton seeds that are removed from the cotton blooms are also used. They are processed into oil, which has a number of uses.
