Terry cloth gloves made with DuPont™ Kevlar® fibers are durable and will allow for longer wear and use. Terry cloth is usually made with looped pile because the loops act like very small sponges. Looped pile is also better able to withstand the strain of rubbing, pulling twisting and tugging by the user. Loosely twisted loops are softer and more absorbent than tightly twisted loops, which produce a rougher fabric. Long pile is more absorbent than short pile. The 9441LM features a regular weight material that has a cotton knit wrist and is cool and comfortable.
