Combed cotton is a method for preparing fiber for spinning by use of combs. The combs used have long metal teeth, and only barely resemble the comb used on hair. However, they are used in a similar fashion with one comb holding the fiber while the other is moved through, slowly transferring the fiber to the moving comb.
Combing the fibers removes the short fibers and arranges the fiber in a flat bundle, with all the fibers going the same direction. This preparation is commonly used to spin a worsted yarn. Cotton is combed when it is to be used for high-quality counts. In general, combing is done with fibers that are longer, and carding with fibers of a shorter length.
ALWAYS wash new towels – 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.
