The Price of Cotton



http://quotes.ino.com/chart/index.html?s=NYBOT_CT.H11.E&t=&a=&w=&v=d12



Cotton prices have risen exponentially over the last 12 months and are currently trending upwards at unprecedented levels. The predictions are for upwards prices to continue to rise at unknown rates for the foreseeable future.

Causes are not only the massive interruption to crops due to major world disasters such as the flooding in Myanmar last year, floods in Pakistan and the floods in Northern Queensland only last month. Added to the mix are Chinese mills being ordered to produce food for the growing population rather than cotton and Indian mills, not having confidence they will receive cotton for production, are sitting idle and not taking orders.

And of course with escalating Oil prices worldwide the cost to ship has also risen dramatically.

We are now experiencing a “Cotton Crisis” which is impacting cotton goods pricing worldwide.

All of this means that the price of any cotton goods will rise at least from 1 April 2011 if they haven’t already done so. And Cotton products will continue to rise.

It also means alternatives to cotton are being researched, such things at Bamboo, Flax, Hemp and other fibres such as polyester may finally prove to be a cheaper option as well as being the right ecological option.

Here at Confident Care we are doing everything we can to keep the prices down but we are facing an at least 100% increase overall on our next shipment.

Our advice to you is that if you see a need for any towelling in the next 6-12 months, buy now!
