Cotton

Industrial Revolution, Kate Sutton, 5th hour

In Industrial Revolution they used cotton to make clothes and blankets and other type of stuff that they needed for their everyday lives and cotton was a big part of what they used. But in the industrial revolution in their factories they had cotton and they had to go to the factories to be able to make their clothes with cotton because they didn't have cotton at their houses. But with an ever increasing population and an ever-expanding British empire there was a huge market for cotton and cotton factories became the dominant feature of the pennines.
