Unlock the Drying Power of Microfibre Towels: The Ultimate Guide

Unlock the Drying Power of Microfibre Towels: The Ultimate Guide

As the leading experts in microfibre towels, we often get asked the same burning question: "Do microfibre towels truly dry you?"
Instead of simply responding with a resounding "YES!" we believe in providing you with a comprehensive understanding of how these remarkable towels work and why they stand as unrivalled champions in the market!

Let's start with the basics. Microfibre towels are ingeniously crafted using a blend of Polyester and Polyamide. These towels feature ultrafine fibres, which are incredibly tiny, measuring just 1/100th of a strand of human hair. During the manufacturing process, these minuscule fibres undergo a special treatment that splits them, resulting in a single strand resembling the following:

Now, let's compare this to a regular towel. The fibres of a traditional cotton towel would look something like this:

If we were to ask you to describe the traits of a conventional cotton towel, you'd likely mention that they tend to be heavy when wet, slow to dry, and often large and bulky. The reason behind these characteristics lies in the manufacturing phase, where the fibres of cotton towels are not split. Consequently, the fibres remain heavy and fail to effectively absorb liquid.

However, with microfibre towels, it's an entirely different story. Thanks to their split fibres, these towels possess the incredible ability to soak up water and liquid in between each gap of the fibres. This unique fibre structure allows the liquid to be retained within the towel, rather than clinging to a small, flat surface like the fibres of a cotton towel would.

Now, imagine the sheer number of microfibres, each measuring 1/100th of a strand of hair, present in just one of our beach towels. Our towels, measuring 160cm x 80cm, contain billions of these remarkable fibres. Each fibre provides ample space for liquid absorption while repelling non-liquids.

In fact, Will & Wind Towels can hold up to 4 times their own weight in liquid! Additionally, these towels dry incredibly fast (once wrung out) due to their open surface space and split fibres. Say goodbye to damp and musty towels that take ages to dry.

It's worth noting that there are various types of microfibre towels available on the market, each designed for specific purposes. When selecting a microfibre towel, keep the following key factors in mind:

Quality: Pay attention to the ratio blend of polyester to polyamide, as this directly influences the towel's performance.
GSM rating: Look for the grams per square meter (GSM) rating, which indicates the towel's thickness and absorbency.
Split or unsplit fibres: The level of absorbency is determined by whether the fibres are split or unsplit.

At Will and Wind, we take pride in crafting microfibre towels that deliver exceptional performance. Our towels feature a premium 80/20 blend of polyester and polyamide, ensuring top-notch quality. With an ultraweight 300 GSM rating, our towels strike the perfect balance between thickness and absorbency. And yes, you guessed it right—our towels boast split fibres, enhancing their liquid-soaking capabilities.

But that's not all. We go the extra mile by utilizing recycled materials in our production process, demonstrating our commitment to sustainability. Moreover, our towel designs showcase breath-taking photographs of Australian landscapes and wildlife, adding a touch of beauty to your drying experience.

It's no wonder that Will and Wind towels are adored by individuals worldwide. We've unlocked the secret!
