We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.

This question is intended for your agricultural curiousity. What makes cotton so different? I understand that the longer the fiber the smoother the feel, but why does cotton from India ALWAYS shrink up so badly, and the cotton from Switzerland feels so soft and never shrinks. What about Arizona cotton, or Georgia, or Turkey? Why does everyone think so highly of Egyptian cotton? What is it about the growing conditions that makes cotton different, and in what ways?
