Learn about how towels are crafted to create different levels of softness and absorbency — and what makes Welspun towels so special, including our patented HYGROCOTTON® technology, which makes towels softer and fluffier with each wash.

Single Ply

Standard, basic quality towel. Single ply yarns are woven together into a single layer. These towels have a semi soft hand feel and are light weight.

Zero Twist

Naturally soft and plush. Zero twist yarns are held together by wrapping thread around the fibers before weaving. This process leaves the yarns in their natural state making them more absorbent. Not only will zero twist dry you faster, pulling the moisture off your body - these will dry quickly due to its natural light weight.

Two Ply

Better quality - two strands of yarn are twisted together to create one thicker strand. The strand is more durable creating a towel with a firm hand feel. It is also super absorbent, lofty and less likely to lint over-time.

HYGROCOTTON®

Our patented HYGROCOTTON® spinning technology makes towels softer and thicker wash after wash. Our unique 100% cotton hollow-core yarns are exceptionally absorbent and fast drying.

Low Twist

Low twist towels are made by spinning the yarn so that the protruding fibers align giving it added strength. This creates more space or air between fibers making for a better quality towel. The results are luxurious - softer, thicker, and more absorbent.

Sheared

Primarily, used for making beach towels. Terry loops are sheared or cut on the face of the towel. The exposed fibers open up presenting a soft, flat construction with an almost velvety hand feel.

Yarn Dyed

The most fashionable or decorative towel item. Yarns are pre-dyed with one or more colors and then woven into a design - stripe, plaids, or motifs. Good for everyday use as they are durable and absorbent.
