Bath Towel Fabrics: Is it a Matter of Preference?

Bath Towel Fabrics: Is it a Matter of Preference?You walk into the newest superstore and notice adorable towels on sale. Appreciating the great price, you grab several of the towels, toss them in your cart, and move along. Without questioning the product aside from its price, you trust that you are preparing to make a practical purchase. However, what is wrong with this scenario?

Know Your Purchases

With so many companies delving into the towel industry, it is important to differentiate top of the line products from mediocre manufacturers. Because consumers and buyers prefer the highest quality product for the lowest price, manufacturers and suppliers must create innovative ways to lower production costs and provide affordable products made from the best material. However, many companies use shortcuts, utilizing poor quality fabrics. Bath towels should always be made from great materials—this is not a matter of preference, but of fact.

All About Terry Cloth

Terry cloth, the most popular fabric used for towels, is strong, durable, long-lasting and incredibly absorbent. Made from cotton, terry cloth is comprised of tiny loops that catch water. The longer the loops, the more absorbent the towel is.

Why Quality Counts

Picking up a cheap towel at the nearest convenience store doesn’t sound like a horrible idea—until you put this towel into action. Cheap towels are typically not very absorbent, tend to produce a lot of lint (due to the use of uncombed cotton) and suffer from pilling after washing and drying. Instead of saving money, you wasted it on a bad product with low performance.

Don’t Be Fooled

Even cheap towels might feel good at the store! Many towel distributors coat their towels with a softener so that, at the store, customers will be drawn to the soft nature of their product. However, after one or two washes, this softener wears off—leaving buyers with dry, brittle towels. Always read details when purchasing towels so you are not fooled into paying too much money for poor quality.

Materials Matter

Good terry cloth is made from 100% cotton, an incredibly absorbent material. Great terry cloth, however, is developed from 100% combed cotton.

What is Combed Cotton?

All cotton is combed to some degree to remove debris and seeds from the cotton plant. However, cotton that is combed once or twice more results in much finer cotton. The shaggy, loose fibers are combed out, leaving only long strands, which are spun into thread.

How Does This Affect Quality?

Although fibers seem small and insignificant, this makes a huge difference in the final product. The combing process removes the short, scratchy fibers, resulting in a softer fabric. This also reduces the amount of lint that falls out of the fabric, as most of it was combed out before the thread was even spun.

Towel Weight

Longevity, durability and absorbency are all benefits of purchasing towels made from heavier fabric. They are less likely to tear, shred and develop holes than thinner and lighter towels.
