I think I read about these on here somewhere? does anyone use them when camping? thinking they might be quite space saving

I use them on holiday instead of beach towels. They really free up space and they dry quickly.
Amazon have loads

Yes, got them from Turkey. 5 of them take up less space than a beach towel and they dry so much quicker!

I bought one on ebay after reading about them on here, and it is brilliant. Huge, folds up tiny, dries quickly. MIL got me two more from Turkey which are really silky feeling.

I did the same, a few pounds on eBay after reading about them here last year. I much prefer the feel of cotton over microfibre and they dry so quickly.

I did the same - a few pounds in eBay direct from Turkey in a few days and I love them. I much prefer the feel of cotton to microfibre and they dry really quickly.

are they made of a special kind of material or just bog standard cotton like a sarong?

TheFallenMadonna Thu 04-Jun-15 19:36:53

We use them too. Thicker than a sarong. Pretty effective as towels, much quicker drying.

thanks, I'm going to get a couple off eBay smile

I got some to take on the holiday i just got back from.

Surprisingly good. Basically like big teatowels

Brilliant thank you all. the first result that comes up on amazon has 50 odd good reviews, might treat myself to add to the camping kit!

After reading this thread I ordered3 for £21 for amazon on Tuesday they arrived today all the way from Turkey and are lovely! I am already thinking of what I'll fill the space they've created in the car with!!

I've just ordered some as well!

I love them and just bought some more as our non-camping, in-house, "summer" towels as our normal house towels never dry in the summer. Love them for camping as well !

i also use them for swimming, as theyre light and non bulky for swimmung bags

Have just ordered a couple for our holiday, hate wasting suitcase space on big towels!

SteamyMcDreamy Sat 06-Jun-15 19:23:05

I've just ordered a couple. Hope they are small enough for hand luggage for my Ryanair flight.

ginmakesitallok Tue 09-Jun-15 19:39:08

Mine arrived today, tried one out on dd2 after her bath, FANTASTIC! I am a convert. Bit hmm at the attached invoice which described them as "samples" with a value of £1. Guess that's why postage is so cheap!

Can anyone who had bought them recently send a link to that product please?

I want to know too!!! Sound fantastic

Sobek Thu 11-Jun-15 18:47:38

Yes...would also love to know...3 for £21 is a bargain!

Look on eBay for the seller bosphorusshoppeuk.

Monkey533 Fri 12-Jun-15 16:01:56

These are the ones I have, though the other ones being sold on amazon look very similar.

Interestingly I much prefer them to the ones I just bought from the horses mouth in Morocco. Hopefully when they have been washed and dried a few times they will soften up but right now they don't seem tot absorb the water off you very well sad
