The composition

The composition of a fabric is the type of fibres used to make threads. The quality of these fibres determines the durability, softness, and appearance of the final fabric.

At Bassols, we only select threads made with long, combed, natural fibres.

Through the combing process, the long fibres are separated from the short fibres so threads can be made with the longest ones. The longer the fibres, the fewer ends the thread has, and, therefore, it will be softer and more resistant.

Cotton is the most commonly used fibre worldwide given its great benefits and it’s one of the best options for home furnishings. It stands out as a fibre of great softness that can regulate the body’s temperature, while also being breathable, absorbent and hypoallergenic.
