Each one of us has a terry type that we prefer.
- Light & fluffy towels
These towels are generally woven with zero or low-twist yarn and have a longer pile or loop that adds a fluffiness and an almost airy feel to the towel.
Nicely Absorbent, they wick water away from the body and feel light against the skin.
- Heavy & substantial towels
Crafted from high-twist or multi-ply yarn these towels have a shorter, densely woven pile and a soft, absorbent and substantially weighty feel.
- Velour towels
These feel like velvet with the piles on one side sheared.
- Light and Abrasive
Some of us like our towels to be very light and absorbent but with a slightly abrasive feel so we feel like we are getting a good scrub. This handle is generally achieved with a twisted yarn, low pile construction.
