FIBER FOR THE PERFECT TOWEL
When shopping for the perfect plush towel, you might want to heed your mother’s advice and “keep your hands to yourself!” Why you ask? Because, believe it or not, “touch” is NOT the ideal way to distinguish the good from the garish when choosing the right towel! Similar to denim, there are towels that fall apart after the first few washes and others that get better with age. So don’t let that first “fuzzy feeling” blur your senses.
Cotton is the primary fibre used in bath towels. The quality of standard cotton is determined by a number of factors, with the length of the fiber being a key factor in choosing the right cotton to create sturdy, moisture-seeking, 100% cotton towels.
