A knitted terry towel often gives the impression of having a heavier weight than is actually the case - they can look fluffier and deeper whilst using less yarn, which makes them cheaper. The loop in the terry is also stronger, and won't catch or be pulled out. Knitted terry towels are often made with a mix of polyester and cotton which can reduce the dyeing options, but does make them faster-drying - like our Quick Drying Towels.
