The Iles Formula Turban Towel is made from microfiber. We opted for this particular toweling for its fast absorbency of water. We tested it beside more sophisticated technical fabrics but found those towels scratched the hair surface of already damaged hair. Our microfiber has a very soft interior that almost feels like cashmere, it is very gentle on the hair shaft. It also has a button loop system so stays in place which is comfortable to wear. We have also enlarged the turban length to accommodate easily to those with extensions. This makes no difference to those with short hair, they can just create a few more turns in the twist.
