Frequently Asked Questions


Our towels are made of microfiber fabric. Microfiber is a synthetic fiber, comprised of varying combinations of polyester and polyamide. We use a 88% polyester and 12% polyamide blend.
Unlike the typical terry cloth towels you’re used to, microfiber towels are designed to be quicker-drying and more absorbent. They don't collect that damp smell, and the fabric’s smooth surface means that sand won’t stick. There are different types of microfiber fabrics, but ours is designed to be compact & light-weight for the perfect travel towel!
Wanderlight towels are in a league of their own, from our beautiful designs and quality craftsmanship, to the very threads of our fabric. Years of development have gone into creating a towel that is quicker-drying, more compact, and more light-weight than the rest. We’re confident that we make the best travel towel out there.
“Quick-Dry” towels are able to dry you off more quickly, as well as dry themselves off more quickly.
We currently offer two sizes of towels: Large & Standard

Large is our most popular towel size, and most people would find this to be the most suitable and versatile. However, we recommend the Standard size if:

  • You’re tight on space/weight allowance –  Backpackers know all too well that every pound and every inch of space makes a difference. 60g lighter and 2cm shorter when compact in its pouch, this towel was made for you!
  • You won’t be lying down on your towel and full-body coverage isn’t a priority(ex. just needed to wipe down after exercising/pool)
  • You’re petite and can get away with using a smaller towel in general
We recommend hand washing and air drying to preserve the quality of the towel and lower your environmental impact. However, should you choose, your towel can be machine washed with like colours in cold water (30˚C/86˚F) and tumble dried on low heat. Do not use bleach or fabric softener. Fabric softener can deteriorate the efficacy of the microfiber over time.

The towel pouch should only be hand washed & air dried.
