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.

Our standard UK courier takes approximately 3 days and costs £4.95, or is free for orders of £70 or more.

Our express UK courier usually delivers within 24 hours of dispatch and costs £8.95. Please note that if you are ordering a personalised towel, express delivery will not affect the dispatch time as this is dictated by our production process; just which courier we use.

We now also offer International delivery to selected EU countries, for £19.50. We use UPS for international deliveries, which usually takes 3-5 working days.

The EU countries we currently deliver to are: Republic of Ireland, France, The Netherlands, Belgium, Spain (mainland), Italy, Portugal, Germany, Austria, Poland, Sweden and Finland.
