Edward Hall developing wipe products.

The use of natural cotton fibers from Edward Hall, Whaley Bridge, U.K, and new spunlacing production techniques by roll goods manufacturers are being combined to develop a nonwoven roller towel for the hand drying market. By using cotton fibers and a nonwoven process, the roller towel is given enough strength to be pulled through a mechanical roller but is also kept absorbent and soft.

The nonwoven lengths of towel can be embossed, colored or overprinted to suit customer needs. By using cotton, the towel will have excellent absorption and will retain its shape and profile after laundering.
