What is Mercerized Cotton?
Mercerized cotton is cotton which has been treated to improve the cotton's strength, luster, and dyeability. Mercerized cotton is also more absorbent than regular cotton, making it a popular choice for towels and other absorbent textiles. The treatment can be applied to both woven and knitted cotton fabrics.
Mercerized cotton is often used in high-end apparel and luxury bedding because of its smooth feel and lustrous sheen. It is also used in embroidery floss, as the mercerization process gives the thread a glossy appearance and increased strength.
