Twisted pile drying towels first appeared on the market in 2015, when Gyeon launched their Q²M SilkDryer. A number of other manufacturers quickly followed suit, including Nanolex, who launched their own version in 2016. As is the case with all twisted pile towels, the Nanolex Microfiber Drying Towel feels a bit odd to start with, due to its tufted texture. However, this texture doesn't pose any safety issues and, thanks to its double-sided nature (twisted pile drying towels are usually single-sided), its drying performance raises the proverbial bar further.
The Nanolex Microfiber Drying Towel features a 70:30 (polyester:polyamide) weave with thousands of loosely twisted closed-loop tufts. This structure significantly increases the surface area of the towel and enables it to soak up enormous amounts of water, to the extent that it can dry most panels fully in just a single pass, leaving no streaks behind. Moreover, the drag-free nature of this weave, combined with the use of a soft suede-like edging, minimises the risk of inflicting fresh marring, particularly when wipe drying instead of pat drying.
Care instructions: (i) wash after each use in a washing machine at a low temperature (40°C) using a non-biological liquid detergent (avoid soap powders and detergents containing bleach or fabric softeners); (ii) allow to dry naturally on a line or tumble dry on a cool heat setting (avoid radiators and other sources of high heat), and; (iii) store in a dry, dust-free environment while not in use (lidded plastic storage boxes are ideal in this respect).
