    maybe i can give you some insight... I make my own as well and for some years now..and here are some problem

    first there is all kinds of towel on the market different thikness... different material .. contton .. polyester... etc...

    its a trial and error process really... some towel feels different when wet... so you mostlylike have to go and feel them and see which onel you like best...

    And when you do find one that is at your liking please do buy a few of them cuz i ran into a problem where i couldn't find the same model and brand so i had to redo my R&D to find another that feels the same....

    good luck

    i use 100 cotton and for cutting use a razor roller cutter its the best .. in terms of not having too much coming out on the sides....

    and try to find a towel that has a denser build...
