Is there supposed to be a link? Generally, Turkish towels are very good quality but there can always be exceptions!

she said hers is 'Luf Turkish Towels' but they also sell cheaper ones at primark I think? Would you use in the bath or beach?

They're ok, but I'm sure they're harder to clean and dry.

Hammam towels? Ours is convenient but much less luxurious than a normal towel. We tend to use it as an extra on the beach or for camping..

I think one or two, over one of those silver survival blankets that fold up really tiny, would work a really small, lightweight but functional picnic blanket.

We have a couple of Hamman towels. They are useful because they fold up in a beach bag and are light. I would only use them in a hot country though as they don't dry you as thoroughly as a terry towel.

I disagree that they are harder to clean and dry - they go in the washing machine and tumble dryer just like any other towel. Wash at 40 degrees maximum though. They dry just as well as a terry towelling towel, it's just different. Great in summer, for travelling, as beach towels, etc. I just wish you could get a matching bale including hand towels.
