Abstract: Why do cotton fibers have superior moisture transferring property? This paper reveals that the self-similarity of fibrillar structure of cotton fibers is the key. The fractal dimensions are calculated, which are very close to the Golden Mean (1.618), revealing that certain optimal structure existed in the cotton fibers. It might provide new idea for designing new textile productions with good moisture-transferring property.

Keywords: Cotton fiber, moisture transferring, fractal dimension, Golden Mean, nano scale
