hi my name's Russell today I'm in to introduce you to another cloth this time we have cotton very popular in summer has a few upsides downsides upsides is quite tough last year a long time especially if mixed with a little bit of elastic we set a brand called MMX here and they will carry a 2% elastic in their cotton and that gives it a lot of stretch while strength and so it stops increasing 100% cotton however will do exactly the opposite I've just done increased tests on that with one hand increase test on this with one hand so 100% cotton after five minutes of where it's pretty tempting with elastic you'll get a much better product
