Caption: Raw (untreated) cotton fibers from the cotton plant (Gossypium sp.). The boll or seed pod of the cotton plant contains the white cotton (cellulose) fibers. Once the seed pod has opened the raw cotton fibers dry out and can be harvested and made into textile fabrics and other cotton containing products.
