Cotton questions

I need recommendations here. What would you suggest for a durable and comfortable to wear fabric? 100% cotton? or a cotton blend? How about cotton/hemp?

Is ginned cotton not carded or combed? Is it easy to spin?

I'm knitting a T shirt in Brown Sheep Cotton Fine (cotton/wool 80/20) which I'm hoping will be cool enough for our Sydney summers. Only the short sleeves to go now.

Depends what you want it for. Socks are always nice in cotton, but they have not much elasticity, a cotton blen with some synthetic in it will be more washable as well? So a question for your question. What are you making?
