A method for quantitatively evaluating the least mobile fraction of moisture sorbed by cotton fibres with the kinetic curves of the change in the desorption process parameters is proposed. The hypothesis that the separated form of the most slowly removed water is localized in sections of the surface layer of crystallites decrystallized on drying is substantiated. Based on an analysis of the temperature curve of the amount of difficult-to-remove moisture, the temperature of the relaxation transition (120-125°C) related to the cooperative mobility of the kinetic elements in the amorphous regions of cellulose was determined
