Michael's had some of this that was thinner than SnC ad I was wondering since it's a bit thinner, would it make a good hand towel?

I don't think it would be very absorbable. The finishing that's put on by mercerizing it kind of `seals' in the fibers.

You might consider buying one skein and making a dishcloth to test out how the fabric feels and if it's absorbent enough for you.
