What is Ply?
Paper towels are typically made from chemically pulped softwood fibres or recycled fibres. Usually, when a smoother sheet is required, more hardwood fibers are used. Each ply of the 2-ply paper towel is made separately, then combined using a procedure called embossing. This is responsible for the larger indentions that are found on the surface of paper towels. The 2-ply sheet is heavier, which enables it to pick up more water since wood fibers are relatively hydrophilic by nature. Also, the structure that is formed when the two layers are put together is better able to wick water between the layers, increasing the speed of pick-up and therefore quicker drying of the hands.
