What is the length of medium staple cotton?


2.2 cm to 2.8 cm  is the length of medium staple cotton.

The average length of a group of fibres that make up a cotton yarn is referred to as staple length. The longer fibres of extra long-staple cotton produce stronger and softer yarn, which results in fabrics that are both stronger and softer.

  • Since a long fibre is required to make a very thin and strong yarn, most high thread-count sheets are made from extra-long staple cotton.
  • In spinning cotton, staple length is important because shorter fibres are more challenging to spin and lead to more hairy yarns.
