Not many people spend time and energy when shopping for towels – they’re either choosing from touch alone or worse, buying an expensive towel assuming that price equals quality. But given the tons of material and size options, selecting a high-quality towel isn’t easy. If you’re looking for towels and overwhelmed by choice, here are a few tips to help you:
Different types of towels are made for specific purposes. Regular bath towels are big enough to be wrapped around the waist. They come in different materials, viz. cotton, terry cotton, bamboo, etc. Beach towels have a flat weave construction so that they don’t take up much space and dry fast. Hand towels are made from good quality cotton because absorbency is a key quality. If you’re looking for a towel that serves all of these purposes, buy Turkish towels. They are versatile and compact enough to be carried while traveling and dry quickly.
Doesn’t it feel great when new towels feel as soft as a baby’s bottom? But that’s probably because the manufacturer has added chemical softeners to appear nice and smooth. After a few washes, these towels become rough and course. If you want your towel to soften with every wash, buy Turkish towels from Loopys – they’re made from 100% organic and all-natural because we do not use synthetic chemicals or dyes. The more you use a Loopys Turkish towel, the more absorbent and softer it becomes.
High-quality towels are made from cotton, but not all cotton towels are made alike. Look for towels made using Turkish or Egyptian cotton. Some people prefer bamboo towels because of their eco-friendly nature. Towels made using these natural fabrics dry quickly and have antimicrobial properties. Synthetic towels are made using a blend of nylon, rayon, or polyester and cotton to make them appear soft and fluffy. While they are sturdy, they do not become rough and absorb less over time.
