If the look of your towel is as important to you as its absorbency, this is the best way to go.
Like Egyptian cotton, Turkish cotton is a long fiber that aids in greater absorbency and makes a perfect fiber for towels.
Some people argue that an Egyptian cotton towel has too much absorbency that results in a used towel taking too long to dry out.
Bath towels and bath sheets made from Egyptian and Brazilian cotton or Supima have the softest feel and the highest absorbency.
Stick with towels manufactured from 100 percent natural fibers because blending the natural fibers with a synthetic can impact the textile's absorbency.
