What is cotton yarn? 

Cotton yarns are spun from fibers found in the seed pod of the cotton plant. Natural cotton is usually white. After being harvested the cotton is cleaned, dyed and spun into yarn. Compared to wool, cotton is inelastic. Consequently, it lacks the "bounce" of other natural fibers. Blending cotton with synthetic fibers allows the cotton to stretch, lessens the weight and allows it to dry faster. Cotton knitting yarn creates great stitch definition. It is durable, holds color well and washes easily.
