    Hi everybody, 

    I'm new to this site, so please excuse me if this is in the wrong section. I have a question about Wonderdry tea towels. Does anybody know who makes them and how to get in touch with them? I recently bought two as a sample, tested them and was very satisfied. So I bought another dozen from a different seller. They arrived today and seemed to me to be counterfeit, they are flimsy, thin and have paper labels, that soak through and come off right away. Nowhere was the name Wonderdry mentioned, but the seller claims they are. I have had a word with the seller, they assure me they are the real thing but they look and feel nothing like the two I originally bought. I tried to sort it out with ebay, but you know what they are like. So I thought I get in touch with Wonderdry themselves and ask them for their opinion. Can anybody give me any advice please? Thanks.

    Seems that amazon sells two types of Wonderdrys:  95% cotton 5% polyester and the other kind that are 100% cotton.  Do a google search.  8)

    Hi to everybody who answered, thank you. First off I have a wok thanks and I use it a lot. Still I run out of ideas.

    Yes I saw that there are two kinds. But I'm still confused about who owns the brand Wonderdry. I found Vogue Wonderdry and Home Edition. I'm getting very confused. I Wonderdry a trademark or can anybody call a checkered towel Wonderdry? I emailed nisbets and am chatting with the manager as the Vogue brand belongs to them. See if he can shed any light. As to labels, on the new ones the labels are paper and dissolve but don't mention the name Wonderdry at all. Which  makes me suspicious. The two I ordered before are actually Home Edition Wonderdry towels. So I'm just very confused now.
