How to Choose the Perfect Towel

Tips for finding a towel that keeps its softness and absorbs beautifully.

LinenSource offers the finest cotton towels that are both absorbent and luxuriously soft. When purchasing towels you should consider Fiber, Construction and Size.


Renaissance II Towels by Christy

Fiber

Egyptian Cotton Towels- This long stapled cotton is grown in Egypt's Nile River Valley region and is renowned for its silky softness and durability.

MicroCotton® Towels - A trademark name for long stapled cotton grown in India, it has plush fibers that create an extra absorbent, fluffy towel.

Supima® Cotton Towels- An abbreviation for "superior pima," this 100% American-grown pima cotton is extra-long stapled, providing strength and durability for long-lasting, absorbent towels.

Construction

Twist - The number of twists per inch of yarn. The lower the twist, the softer the yarn will be. Higher twist yarn yields durability and strength. Zero twist yarn is made from long stapled fibers that are open ended and absorb moisture very quickly and take less time to dry after washing.

Pile - The pile is the looped or cut fibers that make up the towel's surface. Uncut fibers are more absorbent because the loop absorbs the majority of the water. The longer the loop the more absorbent the towel is. Cut or sheared fibers may feel soft, but they won't soak up as much moisture.

Combed - The yarn is combed, removing short uneven fibers, giving the fabric a stronger and softer feel.

Elegance Cotton Towels
Ringspun - Refers to yarn that is made by continuously twisting and thinning the strands, making a very fine rope of cotton fibers. The twisting makes the short hairs of cotton stand out, resulting in a stronger yarn with a significantly softer feel.
