This towel comes in a beige-and-white striped pattern and is made with 100 percent combed cotton terry. Cotton can absorb about 25 times its weight in water. At 6 ½ feet long, these towels could keep a very tall adult (or several small children) clean and dry after a splash in the pool or ocean. The reversible towels also double as blankets when the sun sets and it’s time to gather around the bonfire.
Dry yourself off with the towel after a shower, bath or dip in the pool or ocean. If the cotton terry loops are snagged, do not pull on them. Simply cut off excess strands. Machine wash cold or warm with like colors using a mild detergent. To retain the plush and fluffy texture of the cotton terry, line dry for best results. If desired, tumble dry on the lowest heat setting.
These towels are designed and produced by a small family-owned company in Germany, which has been making cotton terry cloth towels and bathrobes since 1947. They use only combed cotton for their products, which creates a softer product against the skin. To create combed cotton, fine brushes are used to filter out any remaining impurities as well as the shorter fibers in the raw material. After combing, only the long straight fibers are left, delivering a stronger, more silken cotton fiber. Pure combed cotton terry cloth is able to absorb large amounts of water, as the individual cotton loops provide more surface area with which to attract moisture. Terry cloth is manufactured on special looms with two warp beams: the ground warp, which forms the base of the towel, and the pile warp, which creates the loops of thread that give the fabric its texture and function. The latitudinal threads are called "filler," and they are woven loosely between the warp threads. When the filler is beaten down, its slack creates more loops in the fabric.
