Superior Absorbency

Available exclusively at Dillard’s, Micro Cotton® Elite Bath Towels are developed to epitomize softness.

In a test performed by Bureau Veritas, towel absorbency scored 100 percent (the standard is minimum 75 percent absorbency), and received superlative after-wash scoring, with no visible pile loss or loop pull out.
