With all due respect to those looking for, or in possession of, processes for sublimating cotton, ink does not sublimate into cotton. It is physically impossible. Sublimating a substrate that one sticks onto cotton is sticking something onto cotton, not sublimating cotton.

And one reason to go that route is to use a single printer and inkset for all transfers, be they for sublimation mugs, poly shirts, or cotton garments. It's a process that will make sense for some people and scenarios. But it is not the unicorn the name implies, or that people are looking for when they start threads like this.

Hmmm ... charred unicorn burger ... with bacon
