CONSTRUCTION OF HAIR TOWEL
If this is your first time purchasing wholesale hair towels for your business, you might not be familiar with the specific terminologies; most places use, ring-spun yarn, open-end cotton, single or double. While choosing the right option that works best for your business is easy with Orahome. So here are a few hair towels particulars to make your buying process easier!
• Ring Spun Yarn vs. Open End Yarn
In manufacturing a hair towel, yarn is vital because it gives a softer touch and strength to the hair towel. If the hair towel is made of Ring Spun Yarn, it must be spun or twisted uniformly to the core during the production. This twist makes yarn softer and optically whiter. Ring Spun Yarn has higher tensile strength. In comparison, Open End Yarn is undoubtedly a cost-effective option. It creates most institutional hair towels, but it is harsher to feel and less strengthened.
• Cotton vs. Blend
Another critical factor is whether you need a 100% cotton hair towel or a polyamide-polyester (microfiber) hair towel blend. 100% cotton hair towels are more absorbent and less durable. However, blended hair towels are robust in absorption and last for approximately 30 washes. What about colored hair towels?
We recommend always choosing 100% cotton hair towels when shopping for color hair towels because polyester does not retain dyes easily.
• Terry vs. Combed
Terry hair towels have intact loops on either side, which boast high absorbency. On the other hand, Combed hair towels go through huge machines that cut out on shorter, brittle fibers, and so the long, tough threads remain.
