I gave it a good test. It's nice because it's slightly bigger than my mat. I washed it and let it dry outside and did not appear to shrink. It seemed to hold the water, and then when I rolled it up and put one end on the floor, it gushed sweat. Likely it needs to be washed a few times to absorb more. But it was good to exercise on, as less slippery than a regular towel, and lays flat rather than bunching up.
