Several confusing concepts about cotton socks

Consumers generally know little about cotton.

Merchant A said that long-staple cotton is the best.

Merchant B said that combed cotton is the best.

Merchant C said that mercerized cotton is the best.

What is the difference between these concepts?

We use hair as a metaphor:

Long-staple cotton is like long hair.

Combed cotton is like hair after combing.

Mercerized cotton seems to care for hair to make it more supple, stronger and more lustrous.

Only the superposition of the three can be considered the best.

Do you get it?
