Terry cloth, or terry towelling, is a fabric that is woven with loops on both sides. The loops are usually made of cotton, but they can also be made of silk, linen, polyester, or other man-made fibers. The fabric is thick and absorbent, and it is often used for making bath towels, robes, and other items that need to be absorbent and soft. Terry towelling is also sometimes used for clothing, such as towelling dresses. It is a popular choice for clothing because it is comfortable and easy to care for. When it is made into clothing, terry towelling is usually combined with other fabrics to give it more strength and durability.
