Quick Drying Towels Save on Energy Costs

Updated on October 16, 2010

Quick Dry Towels Cut Energy Costs

Fast drying towels are now available in the marketplace and cut down on energy costs related to running your dryer. The yarns in the towel are loose enough to dry quickly, but absorbent enough to make a great towel. Quick dry towels are reasonably priced and are becoming a huge hit with consumers.

I personally own a few and found that these towels are great for drying hair. These towels absorb quickly and are lightweight for comfort. As many of us make efforts to be more energy-conscious to cut costs and help the environment, quick drying towels have become something I can’t live without!

These plush towels made of cotton differ from quick-drying clothing. Quick-drying clothing (especially athletic apparel) is made of synthetic fibers and the weave of the garment is designed to move moisture away from the wearer.

Low twist yarns use long staple cotton fibers. These cotton fibers are better quality than short staple cotton fibers. Traditionally, towels have had tight twists for durability and thickness. Consumer’s needs have changed and so has the technology.

Bamboo Fiber Towels

Bamboo towels are towels made from bamboo fiber or a combination of bamboo and other fibers. If you were to happen upon a towel made of bamboo fibers in a store it would be almost impossible to tell the difference between it and another fiber. Bamboo is an easily renewable resource and has many beneficial properties. Bamboo fibers are naturally anti-bacterial, moisture-wicking, absorbent and hypoallergenic. Bamboo fibers can be combined with other fibers for production of yarns in towels and other textiles. Bamboo fabrics are also found in apparel.
