Excellent, functional towel
I purchased Lapuan Kankurit Koivu Towel for everyday use for myself and I love it because it is highly absorbent. It does exactly what it is supposed to do: dry you off. Of course, because it is mostly linen, it is stiff, not soft. But don't let that deter you - think exfoliation and loofa. I feel so much CLEANER after showering and drying off with the Lapuan Kankurit Koivu Towel because I don't feel like overly soft fibers are sticking to my skin or leaving fuzz behind. The 70/30 linen/cotton blend wisks away moisture and energizes the skin. And, although substantial, it is not heavy like a lot of the 'luxury' Egyptian cotton towels. Also - another MAJOR BONUS - it dries quickly! In the summertime when the humidity is high, regular cotton towels do not seem to dry completely when hung up by a single point. Those towels can remain damp and then smell dank. Yuck! The Lapuan Kankurit Koivu Towel has a substantial loop sewn on the long side for convenient hanging on a hook (nice touch!) Presumably because this towel is 70/30 linen/cotton, it dries within a few hours hung up by the loop on a hook. There is no need to hang it lengthwise to ensure that it dries. The Lapuan Kankurit Koivu Towel is a great value for a high-performing towel!
