Ring-spun combines the long and short-staple fibers, unlike combed cotton, ring-spun tightly twists them together to make a smoother and stronger yarn. The end product has a more luxurious feel than conventional combed cotton.
Vat Dye - gives the fabric excellent colour fastness, meaning it should not lose its colour in hot washes or when in contact with bleach-based products, however, if vat dyed linen is washed with optical brighteners, this chemical could fade the colour.
Carded cotton is a mechanical process that disentangles, cleans and intermixes fibers to produce a continuous web suitable for subsequent processing, a process prior to combing, which removes any natural knots in the fiber, carded cotton can be stronger than combed cotton fibers.
ALWAYS wash new towels – Please wash before use. New products have chemicals and debris from the manufacturing process. Towels are shipped tightly packed in vacuum packages to distributors, and the compression removes the feel and fluffiness. Always wash new towels before their first use.
Add vinegar to the wash cycle – A half to full cup of vinegar to the occasional wash load is a great natural way to increase absorbency (by changing the water Ph) and also removing the musty smell that damp towels tend to produce. Baking soda can also be helpful.
Avoid fabric softeners – We all like that fresh flowery smell, but fabric softeners also change the Ph of the rinse water and reduces the ability of the towel to absorb water. Ever tried to use a fresh, clean, dry hotel towel, only instead of getting you dry it just moves the moisture around on your skin? They used too much softener.
Avoid chlorine bleach – While chlorine is a great stain remover and whitener, it can significantly reduce the life of your towels by damaging and weakening the fibers. Instead, use an oxygen-based bleach/whitener or spot-treat the stains.
