quick drying towels

These Turkish hydro-cotton towels are the answer.

What are hydro-cotton quick-drying towels?

Hydro-cotton quick-drying towels are made from Turkish cotton in an advanced weaving and spinning process.  Thousands of fine, untwisted loops produce towels that are more absorbent and fast-drying than regular cotton terry towels. Some companies’ unique spinning method creates tiny air pockets between the fibers which allows them to absorb and release water quickly. Now that summer is here, for anyone who has loads of towels to turn over quickly, these are the ticket.
