Doubling up the yarn in a towel's weave is something that's quite common in other countries but less usual here in the UK where we tend to prefer the texture of towels made with single yarns. Double yarns increase a towel's absorbency as they increase the surface area per square inch. The extra yarn means a towel with a denser, more even pile.
