What is Mercerised Cotton?

Mercerized cotton is a type of cotton fabric or fibre that has been treated so that the fibres swell and become more lustrous.

This process also makes the cotton stronger, more durable, and more resistant to wrinkling. The result is a fabric that is smoother and shinier than regular cotton, and has a slightly different hand feel.

Mercerized cotton is most often used for high-end clothing items.
