Is burning cotton bad?

Inherited a bunch of 100 year old moth eaten stained sheets and am using them to start fire in evenings instead of paper.

    Moths that old are very rare; please don’t burn them.

    Real cotton is not a major health hazard when burned.  It can burn pretty fast and waft away as embers or flaming bits, so you do need to be careful as with anything you burn.
