Özet

This experimental study aims to investigate the performance of towels. In order to do this, we obtained the relationships between the towel's performance and selected characteristic properties such as pile highness, aerial density, type of softeners, and dyeing process. For this purpose, the selected towel samples were tested in accordance with the determination of degree of hydrophility, softness, and dimensional change after washing; then the results obtained were analysed. In this first part of our investigation, the effects of pile highness and aerial density on the bending resistance or the softness of towels have been discussed.
