What is the difference between Terry Towels and Double Cloth Towels? How do I find out which is the best for me? Is there a difference in the quality of making between Terry and Double Cloth Towels? If you have these questions running through your mind everytime you set out to purchase a towel, you are not the only one! Yes, you read that right. There are so many people out there with the same queries and we are here to help. Let’s find out the main differences between Terry Towels and Double Cloth Towels and which one to choose.

The Fluffy Factor

Terry Towels are made with thicker fabric in an oh-so-fluffy way that you will want to remain wrapped in them. Double Cloth towels are comparatively lighter than Terry Towels because they are made of fabric that is thinner than Terry’s. Terry Towels are very suitable for use at home and as an added advantage, Terry Towels give your bathrooms a plush look and feel.

The Weaving Methods

 The way Terry Towels and Double Cloth Towels are woven differ from each other. Double Cloth Towels are flat woven and have double layers. These towels are light and highly durable. On the other hand, Terry Bath Towels are terry woven and this fabric can usually absorb large amounts of water. 

The Drying Rate

A Double Cloth Towel, with its thin fabric, dries faster than a Terry Towel. This makes Double Cloth Towels suitable for travel purposes. You can pack it with you without having to worry about the unpleasant odour hitting your nostrils when you unzip your bag.

The Absorbency Check

 Though Terry Towels and Double Cloth Towels have contrasting qualities in terms of weight, fluffiness and drying, they have one thing in common: their absorbency rate. At Doctor Towels, both types of towels are made to absorb at an equal rate. The best bath towel should absorb the water as soon as you wrap it around your body and we make no compromise there, no matter what type of towel it is.


Now that you know the major differences between Terry Towels and Double Cloth Towels, the best way to choose what type of towel suits you best is to analyse your lifestyle. If you travel often and always live in a couple of bags, a Double Cloth Towel is your companion. Double Cloth Towels, with their quick drying qualities, are also perfectly suitable for those who live in extremely cold places. On the other hand, if you are a fan of fluffy comfort with rich looks, then don’t hesitate to stack your bathroom cabinets with Terry Towels.
