It's the salt in the tears that lead to the white coating...
On a more serious note, cotton looks and feels very different to lightweight wool. Get the material that will create the kind of look you want. Personally, I'm increasingly leaning away from cotton and towards either linen (for a crumply look) or lightweight wool (for a smarter look). Cotton's particular crumple isn't as attractive to my eye as linen's rumple, if you want a rumply effect.
