What is Turkish cotton?
Turkish cotton is a premium long-fiber cotton grown exclusively in the Aegean Region. Much like Egyptian cotton, the long fibers yield stronger and smoother threads than regular cotton. And also like Egyptian cotton, Turkish cotton becomes even softer and more comfortable over time.
What are the Benefits of Turkish Cotton Towels?
Think about what’s most important to you in a towel. If the words “quick-drying,” “absorbent,” and “soft” come to mind, Turkish cotton towels are just what you need.
Have you ever had a towel that stays wet long after use and develops a funky odor? This is precisely why it’s important to have a quick-drying towel. Turkish cotton has just the right amount of absorbency to effectively remove water from your body and then dry nice and fast. This sets it apart from Egyptian cotton, which can be a little too absorbent for this task. When a towel dries quickly, there’s less of a chance of mildew, which is primarily responsible for that funky odor you may have noticed with other towels.
But just because Turkish cotton towels are quick-drying doesn’t mean that they aren’t also super soft and plush! In fact, Turkish cotton towels are known for providing a perfect combination of both absorbency and softness – particularly those with a GSM count of over 500.
Of course, the material you like in your towels is ultimately a matter of personal preference. But if you haven’t used Turkish cotton towels yet, give them a try. You could be missing out on the best bath towels you’ve ever had!
