These take a while to adjust to as they can feel peculiar, but microfibre towels are wonderful as they are so lightweight. For people with troublesome hands or difficulties lifting things they are great. I also like them for holidays as they pack small, weigh little & dry extremely quickly. Wash on a low heat setting to save energy too. Quite often these towels are available at the cheaper supermarkets that have become popular of late (I don;t know if I am allowed to say their names????) & are not too expensive.
If you haven't already tried them, have a go.
