  • But the wikipedia Shows that the cotton is also the Bast Fiber.
    It Explain follows :

    Often bast fibres have higher tensile strength than other kinds, and are used in high-quality textiles (sometimes in blends with cotton or synthetic fibres), ropes, yarn, paper, composite materials and burlap.
