Micro-Fiber vs 100% cotton towels

I have a question regarding towels.

Some say 100% USA cotton is the safest thing to use to avoid scratching, swirl marks, etc....

Some say that micro-fiber is the safest thing to use to avoid scratching, swirl marks, etc....

I have always used the 100% USA cotton method, and it has been great at not creating scratches, but very efficient in removing wax/polish. After reading this forum, I decided to purchase micro-fiber towels from Detailed Image. I am impressed with these towels, however, I noticed that they have a tag stating they are made of polyester.

I guess my question is, is it the weeve (or lack of) in a towel that can scratch your clear-coat, or is it the material composition that can (cotton vs. polyester)? Also, does anyone make a 100% cotton micro-fiber towel?

Thanks in advance....
