You can also use another layer if needed if the design were quite dense and large. You can slide this extra layer under the hoop (floating it) without hooping. I do this whenever I see any sign of puckering or drawing up.
Also, it's very important to us a lightweight Sulky Solvy topper on any napped or ribbed type of towel. It keeps the design from becoming embedded into the nap. (And it will be particularly helpful on a thin towel, even if it's not napped.)
There are a number of blogs Ellen March has done about towels, which you can find here:
