In respect to this, what is shell fabric made of?
CottonShell Fabrics are performance fabrics woven from 100% cotton. They are made from long staple cotton fibers that swell slightly when exposed to water. In combination with the unusually high thread density of the weaving, the fabric construction becomes waterproof even without coating or lamination.
Additionally, is shell fabric waterproof? The most important properties of a shell layer are water-resistance and breathability, which is achieved by the fabric using either a membrane or a coating. A fabric can be made waterproof/breathable by bonding a very thin (around 0.01 mm) waterproof/breathable membrane to the face fabric.
