you can see the so-called cottonwool, that is, the set of filaments that envelop the seeds and that, once collected and processed, give rise to cotton fabrics. Each cotton plant produces approx. from 200 to 500 fruits, equivalent to approx. 2/5 kg of raw fiber. Biologically, cotton hairs are intended to facilitate the dispersion of seeds through the wind. Cotton seeds, once removed from cottonwool, are subjected to pressure or extraction with solvents to obtain cotton oil, used in human and animal nutrition, but also for the production of soaps and candles. What remains of the seeds after the extraction of the oil is used to feed livestock.
In the past cotton was obtained by working wooden instruments or by hand. After taking the cotton capsule from the plant of the same name, a ball of filaments was obtained that was treated and processed before being sent to textile industries. Cotton, the term of which comes from the Arabic katun or land of conquest was already present before the second millennium BC in India and also in Peru, it was introduced first in Sicily in the 9th century and then throughout Europe.
By the 4th century BC Alexander the Great had made Alexandria the most important sorting centre for Indian cotton of the highest quality headed to Europe. With the conquest of Spain by the Arabs, spinning and weaving techniques were also introduced in Europe, as well as the cultivation of cotton, which was interrupted in the early 17th century following the expulsion of the Moors. At that point it was Portugal that took the sceptre of the main importer of the noble Indian cotton. Meanwhile, the centuries passed and in England, between the 18th and 19th centuries, began the industrial revolution that saw the production of fabrics and yarn concentrated in the United Kingdom. Shortly after this the cultivation and processing techniques were exported to the Americas.

    Mi dispiace del suo commento neutro ma nel lotto è specificato che e'rano presenti macchie e anche nelle foto, come comprende io non posso sapere di che origine siano le macchie, faccio il Perito Tessile e in virtù di questo il lotto era partito da zero un cordiale saluto
