I contacted an Australian customer recently who wanted to add towel products to her company to expand the business. After knowing about our checkerboard towels, she got some samples, then she was confused because she didn’t know how to test the products because this is her first time coming into the towel industry. Knowing her difficulties, we give some advice and successfully help her to test samples. The specific methods are as follows, share to help my dear friends here:
There are many raised terry on the surface of the towel, which is the main indicator of the quality of the towel. Good quality towels have many and long terry on each square on both sides, thick and soft, and easy to absorb and store water; poor quality towels have short and few terry and are not rich enough.
According to the product specifications provided by the supplier, good-quality towels are heavier; poor-quality towels are lighter.
According to the product specifications provided by the supplier, the yarn count of the towel, the better quality, the higher the yarn count. High-end towels are usually woven with 32S or 40S yarns; mid-range towels are mostly woven with 21S or 20S yarns; low-end towels are all woven with 21S or 16S yarns.
The cotton yarn of towels is divided into long-staple cotton and ordinary cotton. Long-staple cotton is strong and durable, it can be distinguished by hand. The high-grade cotton yarn feels fine and soft, while the ordinary cotton yarn feels harder. It also can be used to distinguish the strength of water absorption: take a small amount of water and inject the towel from a height of 20-30cm. If the water droplets are absorbed immediately, it is a high-quality cotton yarn; if the water droplet absorption speed is slow, the quality of the cotton yarn is not good.
Lay the towel flat or dialysis against the sun to check for broken warp, broken weft, exposed bottom (that is, where there is no loop), napped, thin road, uneven loop, burr, curled edge, false edge, tooth edge, Weaving defects such as seam, skipped stitches, and whether there are appearance defects such as bleeding, rust stains, stains, printing materials, and blurring. If not, it means that the quality is higher.
The above viewpoints are daily summaries. If there are any errors, please correct them. We look forward to creating beautiful sparks with your views and making progress together!
