My parents, cotton plants were grown in black soil and warm climate. The plants bore fruits called cotton bolls. I, the cotton fibre was separated from seeds in the cotton bolls by the process of ginningOther cotton fibres and myself were made into yarn by the process of spinning. The yarn was dyed to give beautiful colours and then woven to get cotton fabric.

[Extra information:

The following steps are involved in the preparation of fabrics:
  1. Obtaining fibre: Extraction of the fibre from its source (Plant or Animal)
  2. Preparation of yarn from fibres by spinning: A group of fibres extracted are twisted together (by the process of spinning) to form Yarn.
  3. When two sets of yarn are involved, yarns are woven on looms to make a fabric. When a single yam is used, the fabric is prepared by knitting: These yarns are twisted tightly and allowed to rotate on the different types of rollers, weaved and knitted to produce Fabrics.
  4. The fabrics produced are dyed: These fabrics are treated with chemicals in the textile industries to make different types of clothing materials. Later these are processed for bleaching to give a smooth, shiny look, colour dying to add colours and design the fabrics.

Hence to summarize the steps we can write:
