Microfiber towels are softer, thinner and more absorbent than conventional towels. They use an ultrafine fiber that's woven like no other textile. Each square inch of a microfiber towel contains about 90,000 microfibers that are a blend of 80% polyester and 20% polyamide. These fibers provide tremendous absorbency...up to 7 times the fabric's weight in moisture...yet they dry quickly.
In addition to having a luxurious texture and fast drying ability, these towels are chemical free, lint free, non-abrasive, and hypoallergenic. When used dry, microfiber is perfect for polishing. Dampened with water they are great for cleaning any washable surface. They’ll leave even the smoothest surfaces (eyeglasses, CD’s etc...) lint and streak free. They pack in a third of the volume of normal towels, which is perfect for any trip.
