Summary: 
According to CSIRO, in 1995 synthetics made up around half of the global fibre market. By 2015, this had risen to 77%. The researchers have first worked on better understanding what determines the length, strength and thickness of cotton fibres. They are doing this by growing a range of different cotton plants, some with long, thin fibres and others with short, woolly fibres.
