Secrets of air Kaol
Magical twist yarn

Asano Twist Yarn Corporation has the world's best twist yarn (the materials of the towels) technology and expansive knowledge on the material. The company was founded in 1969 and succeeded in perming each cotton fiver with their world's first twist yarn process. Unlike hollow yarn that is hollow inside, this technology creates space between each cotton fiver and makes the products fluffy for a long time. Our yarn has better fluff preventing function and durability than non-twisted yarn thanks to the twisting threads.

The "magical twist yarn" turns into the best towel at Oboro Towel Cooperation at Tsu city in Mie.
The company has more than 100 years history.
This manufacturer manages all the processes of weaving, bleaching, dyeing and finishing in their factory.
Their traditional techniques bring out the quality of magical twist yarn.
High quality towels are created with their signature touch (length of the pile yarn).

Fluffy feeling can last even after the laundry

どれほどのものかと思って気になっていましたが、期待通りの吸収力でした。 湯上りにフェイスタオルのこれ一枚で済みます。 髪は腰まであるかなりのロングですが問題なし、そのうえ、浴室の鏡やステンレスの部分などふきあげてますが、これ一枚で済みます。 お洗濯が確実に減りました。 ただ、乾燥速度については、今までのタオル(ふかふか系)と変わりないように思います。
