  • Q & A
A home sauna can be a haven and a spa with traditional accessories, including an invigorating Lapuan Kankurit Sauna Towel.

The highly absorbent and subtly stiff linen terry is ideal for dry massages to improve circulation and for skin exfoliation. The natural black-and-white birch tree pattern adds to the naturally restorative affect.

Great towels

love the Lapuan Kankurit towels, the linen softens with use, they wash beautifully, absorb really well, and look great hanging in the bathroom. Plus they give my skin great exfoliation. This birch design is nice. Well worth the price.

Love these towels!

I love the absorption of these towels. I have dry skin I feel they give me exfoliation. My skin feels so good after drying off.
They drape well on my towel hooks, and dry quickly. This towel is bigger than the regular bath towel, nicer to use because of its size.

Eye-catching design, slim profile in storage
December 5, 2018
Naturally the design is beautiful, as one would expect from Lapuan Kankurit. A lovely surprise was the slim profile of these towels when folded. Fluffy all-cotton towels take up at least twice the space of these cotton/linen ones on the bath shelf.

depends on your preference - if you want a soft fluffy towel, this isn't it. however, my husband loves this rough-yet-very-absorbant material, appreciates the texture for exfoliation. doesn't like using it on his face though, too rough.

Linen towel
May 17, 2018
Great fabric, very absorbent and dries quickly, however, the towel should be about 25cm longer and wider. It does shrink in the first wash as advertised, but becomes unexpectedly skimpy afterwards. The dimensions of the towel should probably be given as they are BEFORE and AFTER the wash.
  • Great fabric
  • Too small after the expected shrinkage.

Excellent, functional towel
July 6, 2017
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!

Very absorbent towels with a great texture
May 1, 2017
These luxurious towels are extremely absorbent and have a brisk texture, owing to their high linen content. Until about a year ago, I'd been using all-linen bath towels. I found they were a bit too abrasive for daily use, but these towels, with a 30% cotton content, have a perfect texture.

Best new towels ever!
September 4, 2016
Loving these new linen towels! The manufacturer recommended a separate prewash to remove shedding fiber, with instructios to clean the washer and dryer filters, which we followed to great advantage. The towels came out of the dryer in perfect, beautiful shape, softened and absorbent. And beautiful!

Why Is it not advised to dry this towel in the dryer? How long might it take to dry if simply hung up after washing? Kiitos!
1 Answer
The care instructions to line-dry rather than tumble dry are provided by the manufacturer. Regretfully, I am not aware of how long the towel takes to dry as we have not received any customer feedback regarding this topic. Being 70% Linen Terry and 30% Cotton, I would think it dries rather quickly.
