Sizing Guide

Which size hooded towel do I need?

We have two sizes of hooded towel: standard and jumbo.

Our standard hooded towels measure 90cm from the top of the hood to the bottom of the towel and 130cm across the width.  Towel length is personal preference but we suggest they fit best when they hang around mid-calf.  Depending on the height of your child, we suggest standard size towels for children who are toddling, right through to approximately 7yrs. 

Our jumbo hooded towels measure 120cm from the top of the hood to the bottom of the towel and 150cm across the width.  We suggest these for children aged 7 or 8 yrs and upwards. 


Are they suitable for babies?

Yes, the double thickness hood and the soft Egyptian cotton towelling make them a lovely option for babies.

For pre-walkers, we suggest laying the towel on the floor or on a changing mat after their bath. The double thickness hood provides cushioning for baby's head, and the large amount of soft towelling can be wrapped over them to keep them warm whilst gently patting them dry.

And as they are substantially bigger than other hooded towels on the market, as baby grows to walking age and beyond, the towel will transition with them lasting for many years beyond the baby stage.

All of our orders are dispatched by courier, unless you choose the 'local collection (Harpenden)' option at the checkout.

Louisa G
White elephant towel

Absolutely gorgeous soft, fluffy towel. My baby is so warm and cosy in it after her bath.

We're so glad to hear that Louisa, thank you for the lovely review.

Soft, thick, fragile

Beautifully thick and soft with a luxurious and snuggly feel, but don't wash well. Cannot wash hot for good hygeine, and low tumble requires several hours which isn't very economical (don't like air drying as makes hard and crispy) so ours has shrunk massively, defeating the USP and feels very over priced for this.

Hi Lucy. Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review, we're really glad you love the towel in terms of size and quality but of course are disappointed to hear you aren't finding it washes and dries very well. Have you tried line drying the towel then finishing it in the tumble dryer for 10-15 mins? That should be enough to keep it soft and fluffy (you can add a tennis ball to the drum for extra softness) whilst keeping it economical. Please let us know and feel free to email us at hello@hoodedowls.co.uk if you want to talk more. Thanks for the feedback.
