Aden + Anais present another delightful product made of their signature 100% cotton muslin. They are passionate about their ancient and historical fabric, used by the Indus Valley Civilization at least 7,000 years ago, explaining that of all possible materials cotton muslin best represents Aden + Anais' hope of "bringing mothers and babies closer together" in a natural and timeless way. According to the company, 100% cotton muslin, "…is the purest, simplest, most gentle, and, in our opinion, the most perfect fabric in the world."

The terry cotton with double-layered hooded towel is soft and large (32" x 32") enough to keep baby warm and dry comfortably. The matching, cotton muslin wash cloth is very absorbent which makes it best for older babies because it can get too heavy and big for newborns when wet (12" x 12"). Both the towel and washcloth are machine-washable and easy to dry on a hook after bathing with its attached loop. They are available in many beautiful designs and colors.

We are big fans this company's products, including the Aden + Anais Classic Swaddle, Aden + Anais Burpy Bib, and Aden + Anais Classic Crib Sheet. They all make for classic, top notch gifts.


The most commonly cited likes for this product are:
  • Very soft
  • Thick and absorbent
  • Generously sized towel


User reviews frequently note these disadvantages:
  • Washcloth too big for newborns
  • Costly, but for most worth the price
