I’ve used and have a couple organic cotton towels for the kids, and they’re nice. But I had no idea just how luxurious organic towels could be! One of my sponsors, Baby UR Precious is a family owned and operated business which specializes in organic cotton velour products like hooded towels, wash cloths and blankets. They are hand crafted in the USA with 100% certified Natural Organic Bamboo Velour.
Erin, the mom behind the magic at Baby UR Precious sent us a Organic Hooded Toddler Towel for review (and a washcloth for me!) to try out and I was just in love from first touch! To be honest, I had some misgivings about velour being less absorbent than cotton but I was proven totally wrong once I tried out these organic bamboo velour towels. They are SO soft. And I am not saying “soft” in the traditional sense… I mean really soft, softer than butter soft. So soft I wanted to cover my body with it and take a nap, soft. But would it be good as a towel?
I wrapped my youngest son in the cuddle towel after a bath and laid him on the changing table. He grabbed the towel and rubbed it on his face the way he does with his beloved “kie kie” (our name for blankies in our house) and I think he wanted to bring it to bed with him. Better yet? It is really absorbent and dries them fast (which is key with wiggly kids) and gently with the buttery soft fabric. I was pleasantly surprised how well it dried him off and when I was done the towel wasn’t sopping wet… bamboo has the ability to wick moisture away from the skin and is 3 times more absorbent than cotton. Who knew? Bamboo is also naturally antibacterial and the fabric dries quickly on its own. I would recommend this for babies especially, and babies and kids with sensitive skin and skin issues like eczema. It’s soft and gentle and won’t irritate.
I was so happy to find out that Baby UR Precious also creates blankets with their amazing organic bamboo velour (my son will be so thrilled to not have that since he’s been trying to sleep with his towel!). They also make Baby Hooded Towels, Burp Cloths (so perfect for this use – absorbent and soft), Bibs, Blankets, and Washcloths. The washcloths are great for baby but I love it for me! I have sensitive skin and love having the soft velour to dry my face at night after washing. They come in a variety of soft colors and are very durable. I’ve washed my 100 times already and it still looks new. They aren’t inexpensive as far as these things go but it’s worth it in my opinion. The softness, the absorbency and the wear… you’ll only need one! Plus you’ll be supporting a family run business maintained by a mom just like me, and you.
