Cloth is a basic plant-based fabric that can be grown by planting the cotton plant. It can be used for creating clothes at an electric tailor bench or hand tailor bench, though it does not provide good clothing quality overall. It is also used to make carpet flooring, medicine (after being researched), armchairs or billiards tables.
While players can only grow cotton to harvest light grey cloth, bulk goods traders or faction bases offer dyed cloth for sale.

Cloth is the worst protective textile in the game, with the weakest heat armor of all textiles and absolutely no base sharp or blunt protection (along with the wools). Cloth is alright against temperature, being 9th place against heat, and 17th against cold.
Cloth's main redeeming quality is that it comes from a plant, so doesn't rely on animals or traders. Colonies in a warm biome can easily farm cotton on a large scale, which is useful for the early and mid-game. Any clothing at all may be used to prevent negative moodlets for tattered or nonexistent clothes, and cloth at least gives decent temperature regulation. As furniture, cloth provides no beauty value, but its ease of production make it useful for bulk projects. Just watch out for fire, as cloth is a very flammable substance.
Colored cloth can be bought from traders. It changes the color of some items[Which?] crafted with it. E.g flak vests will be the same color as the cloth used to make it.
