You’re gonna want a bigger towel.
Bath sheets clock in around 40" x 70", compared to typical towels which can come in as small as 27" x 52". The difference is a luxury, but your towels don’t have to be figuratively falling apart at the seams just because the rest of the world literally is.
Boll and Branch’s bath sheet is $55 and available in seven colors, including a very nice navy. It’s organic and manufactured in fair trade factories in India. Slightly smaller, a bit less soft and a bit more absorbent. We’ll be writing about their organic flannel sheets soon.
Parachute makes some of our favorite bedding. Their bath sheet is $39, made in Turkey, and Oeko-Tex certified. Softest, less absorbent, four colors. We’ll be covering their bath robe soon.
Our Promotions Team [Sponsored] sometimes features discounts on Parachute products.
Crane and Canopy’s bath sheet occupies a middle ground in terms of pricing, softness, and absorbency compared to the other two brands we tested, but the included loop for easy hanging is its real highlight. Towels should not exist without this feature. Turkish long-staple cotton, four colors. $48.
Update 8/12/17: We tested Coyuchi’s Cloud Loom Bath Sheet, which is amazingly lofty and absorbent, and beautifully textured. It’s our new favorite, but more than double the price of the others. Organic long-staple Turkish cotton. $95.
Update: 2/8/18: We wrapped ourselves in Snowe’s $48 bath sheet- the softest and lightest, but also thinnest option we’ve tried. Amazingly absorbent for its weight.
Update 8/12/17: We also got into Coyuchi’s Cloud Loom Robe, which we want to live in. It’s comprised of a sleeker take on the same amazing cotton as their towel, and goes for a similar premium.
Coyuchi has also launched a towel and linen subscription service.
Update 2/8/18: We also laid out on Snowe’s $48 beach towel, a minimalist and soft seaside companion with a pop of Breton stripes that’s a foot wider than the competitive set. More of a beach blanket, really.
