About Terry Towelling
Terry towelling fabric, also known as terrycloth or terry cloth, is a woven fabric made with looped yarn. The fabric is covered in tiny loops that are formed during the weaving process and are designed to be extremely absorbent. The material is highly versatile and can be used for various different projects.
Towelling fabric types are primarily used to make hand towels, bathrobes, bath mats and tea towels. So if your project requires a high absorbency fabric, towelling is the perfect choice for you!

Here at Fabric Online, we sell all our terry towelling fabric by the metre, with prices starting from £5.95 depending on the material you choose. Prices vary as different methods are used to make woven fabrics, with some taking longer to produce and requiring a lot more effort.
If you’re looking for an environmentally-friendly fabric, we recommend our bamboo terry cloth, which is made using the pulp of bamboo grass and boasts extremely high water absorbency. Bamboo towelling fabric is one of our best-selling towel options and is also available in double touch.
Caring For Towelling Fabric
Terry cloth can form limescale over time which makes the material hard and scratchy.
The best way to dissolve this limescale is to soak the fabric for a few hours or overnight in a mixture of three parts warm water and one part white vinegar. Wash the fabric normally after soaking, and your towelling will return to its former soft, absorbent, glory!
When sewing with terry towelling material, it’s best to use a needle with a medium to coarse needle thickness.
Some snagging may occur while sewing but fortunately this can be avoided. We recommend sandwiching the fabric between two sheets of baking paper or tracing paper. After sewing, simply tear away the paper, and any small bits of paper left under your stitches will dissolve during the first wash.
Yes! Due to the woven nature of towelling fabrics, they are usually thick and super durable. There is a danger of snagging, but this will only rarely occur due to the high quality nature of the fabric.
Yes, terry towelling can fray easily once it has been cut. However, there is a way to prevent this. After cutting the fabric, simply use a binding stitch to close off the unfinished seams. This should stop your terry towelling fabric from fraying.
Yes! Terry cloth fabric can be easy to wash if done correctly. If your fabric needs a general refresh, simply wash it on a hot wash with detergent. But if the material is hard and stale, it may have formed limescale. To dissolve the limescale, you will need to soak the fabric overnight in 3 parts warm water and 1 part white vinegar, followed by a normal wash. This should leave your fabric feeling soft, fresh and ready to use!
Yes! Towelling is a great choice for making baby grows, due to its soft nature and high absorbency capabilities. Our cotton waffle material is commonly used to make baby grows as it is gentle on baby's skin and is absorbent, soaking in moisture and keeping your baby cool.
