A rich cotton fabric is a fabric with more than 50% cotton fiber, regardless of the mixed fiber inside it, be it polyester, viscose, etc. For example, if a fabric is made up of 60% cotton and 40% polyester, it is a rich cotton fabric.
In general, Cottonrich can have one of the following two meanings. In some contexts, Cottonrich means that the sheet itself is not made from 100% cotton. It can be blended with a polyester or other material, making it more durable, less resistant to tearing and wrinkles, and other benefits.
Cotton Blend. A cotton blend fabric is desirable when a combination of properties in a single fabric is required. Adding spandex to cotton allows for better stretch, just as adding polyester allows you to harden or carry a material with an irreversible finish.
Polycotton garments are breathable, tear resistant and can be transformed into durable fabrics such as canvas. Polycotton blends aren’t as cheap as pure polyester, but they’re usually cheaper than comparable clothing made from 100% cotton and offer much more comfort.

The best cotton for comfort, durability and silkiness is cotton with the longest and most resistant fibers. Pima, SeaIsland and Egyptian cotton are all referred to as extra long stiff cotton [ELS cotton].
Percale: a smooth, flat, tightly woven, combed fabric made from 100% cotton or a 50/50 cotton / polyester blend. Thinner than muslin, expect the number of threads here to vary between 180 and 200. Pima or Supima: High quality cotton with a long shank similar to Egyptian cotton.
Fiber. While cotton is the preferred fiber for percale due to its breathability, dense threads can also cause the fabric to pucker more if the thread count exceeds 400.
Most very good cottons, such as pima and percale, will never exceed 600 threads. Also, it is not good quality cotton and it could also be wood microfiber (cellulose).

A good summer cotton fabric then releases the moisture which evaporates into the air. Polyester fabrics, on the other hand, are often absorbent or absorbent, and neither is ideal for cooling off in hot weather. Cotton usually beats polyester in cold weather.
It shrinks or curls less quickly than a plain cotton shirt and is often easier to clean. Some people argue that cotton blends are more environmentally friendly because they use less cotton, a plant that requires a lot of water to grow. Cotton is soft, but cotton blends are durable.
Cotton and regular polyester are not elastomeric fibers, they do not stretch. but the fabric or garment can also stretch slightly depending on how the fabric has developed. Knitwear generally tends to stretch, mainly due to the nature of the polyester.
Polyester is perhaps the most common of synthetic fabrics and is ubiquitous outdoors and in winter. It is durable and resistant to chemicals, mold, abrasions, stretch marks and fungus. It is also water repellent, which means it does not absorb sweat but can instead accumulate in the garment.
Polyester retains its color better than cotton (whether washed or exposed to sunlight) and is very durable. By hiding the shiny, bright look of polyester, cotton gives the polycotton a natural, organic dimension - a look and feel that is highly valued in interior design.
Although fabrics and blends of cotton and polyester do not shrink as much as pure cotton fabrics, you can shrink them. Expect 80% cotton and 20% polyester or fleece to shrink by about 3%.
