Hammam towels?

Does anyone use Hammam towels instead of normal towels? I thought they might be good for swimming and for after showers as they would save on washing and taking ages to dry. Just wondering if it feels a bit wierd, like drying yourself on an old sheet! Thanks.

I've used one when backpacking before. They feel ok (to me, anyway) but aren't as absorbant. I prefered a decent travel towel instead, I take mine swimming. Hammam towels look pretty, though!

Great for hols and swimming but wouldn't use for everyday in the bathroom.

I think they're great at home in summer or for the gym, etc.

I have one. Bought it just to see how they are.

It's currently being worn as a sarong as on hols.

I'd buy more to use as bath towels for all of us but have quite a lot of regular towels in good nick.

Definitely great for holidays though. Especially if travelling hand luggage only.

They are great as sarongs and on the beach but I prefer a microfibre towel for swimming camping.

Great for travelling and swimming and easier and quicker to launder.
Dry just as well as normal towels. I don't like the feel of microfibre.

I love mine, and they get a lot of use for swimming. Much softer than a sheet
