What is a terry towel weave?
A terry towel weave refers to the type of weave that is used to make a soft pile fabric that is particularly good at absorbing moisture. This fabric is known as terry fabric, terry towelling or Turkish towelling. It is constructed with uncut loops on either one or both sides of the fabric. The length of the loops determines how much fluid is absorbed by the cloth as the longer loops provide more surface area to absorb the moisture they come into contact with.
Terry fabric was traditionally a woven fabric, but it may also be warp-knitted or weft-knitted. It can be made in different thicknesses, qualities and weights. The towelling is woven on special looms that have two beams of longitudinal warp through which the filler or weft is fired laterally.
Fabrics made with a terry towel weave are very absorbent, insulating and bulky. It is both easy to care for and durable, holding up well to frequent use and laundering. Terry-towel textiles do not require ironing.
