I know for sure that cotton can describe objects such as cotton clothes, cotton field, or cotton seed. However, I have a few questions.
1: Can cotton refer to the soft, gathered, and fluffy state of cotton such as cotton of comforters, the infill ?
2: Can cotton refer to the general idea of something soft, gathered, white, and fluffy, but not necessary to be cotton? For example, the nylon infill in a comforter.
