Synthetic materials are damaged more easily by flame. I got a hole melted in a jacket when cooking with charcoal. Also, my SM had a jacket get a hole in it when poking the campfire. Polyester will melt instead of burning, which can be particularly nasty if it melts onto your skin. Cotton is both cheaper and also will not melt like this. I know at camporees and OA events they often have big bonfires and we do a lot of cooking over various heat sources, so I prefer natural fibers.
