Product Guide to Towels

Making sure you pick the right towel for you and for the look of your bathroom is easy at MyHouse as we have compiled the below guide to help you make your choice. Here are the main things you should consider:

 

1

Weights of Towelling

When sourcing your perfect towel you may wish to consider the weight. This is not the only factor but generally, a heavy towel feels warm and luxurious when wrapped around you. Medium weight towels are just as absorbent but are lighter, cooler and often faster drying.

Types of cotton towelling

Egyptian cotton

Considered the world’s finest cotton, handpicked in Egypt. The strength of the fibres create a strong and durable towel that is resistant to stress. Egyptian cotton’s ability to absorb liquids creates a highly absorbent towel.

Australian cotton

A premium cotton, grown on an Australian farm by Australian farmers. The long staple length creates a strong durable towel. It has fewer fibres which in turn creates a luxuriously soft light towel that dries quickly.

Cotton Bamboo

A premium cotton, renewable and eco-friendly. Bamboo is naturally soft and a great fabric for towelling. Its anti-bacterial properties and smooth touch make it perfect for those with sensitive skin.


Turkish cotton

Considered one of the world’s highest quality cottons, grown in the Aegean part of Turkey. It is renowned for its long lasting texture and natural shine. Highly absorbent, and ideal for warmer climates with excessive moisture.

How do I care for my towels?

Always wash your new towels in a cool/warm machine wash before you use them. Sometimes it can take a few washes for a towel to achieve its maximum absorbency. Avoid using fabric softeners which leave a ”coating” on the towelling loops, which in turn reduces their absorbency. Tumble drying on a medium heat will give your towels the softest finish. Alternatively, shake your towels and hang them on a washing line, taking care not to leave towels out too long in the hot sun.
