What is the softest kind of towel?

Asked by mowens (8302 points ) November 10th, 2011

This is going to sound moronic. So, I was at my parents a few years back and my mom had gotten this new supper soft, super absorbant towel. I stole it. I took it back with me and I have had it for years. It is white, and the (for lack of a better term) brussles on it are HUGE. This is the absolute softest towel I have ever seen.

I used bleach on it a few times, taking the ink off of the tag. I have no idea what kind of towel it is. For the past 2 years I have felt EVERY towel I see wherever I go, and never find something similar. My mom thought it might have been a bamboo towel, but I found those somewhere and they were not nearly as soft… and the texture was entirely different. I need to know what kind of towel this is. I NEED MORE SOFT TOWELS!!!

If it is super absorbant and super soft, I’m going to guess that it’s a microfiber towel. Usually I have to order them online, but out of state relatives tell me they sell them at Dillard’s. We don’t have Dillard’s in my state

EDIT: These are all I use for my hair. They cut drying time in half.

Sounds like fleece, but that wouldn’t be very absorbent.

@SpatzieLover I dont think it was microfiber, but I will try that out. I will post a picture of that towel when I get home. Serious Mowens is Serious.

@Skaggfacemutt It looks like a normal towel but there is kind of a pattern to the little thingies on it. It’s weird. I will show you.

Just from experience, microfiber has an unpleasant, spongy, clingy feel to it. I have bamboo towels and they are nice, but I wouldn’t say that they are the softest towels I ever felt. Maybe yours is french terry.

It used to be Egyptian Cotton until the industry found out there were no regulations on what could bear that label.

Hmm… I would have said just use downy. But personally I prefer dry, absorbent towels to soft ones. Wouldn’t mind trying the one you’ve described, though.

@EmptyNest If I ever find it, I will let you know. I forgot to take a picture. I will tonight.
