Abyss Twill Towels: Lighter-Weight, Textured Luxury Bath Towels

This article showcases Abyss Twill Towels: a lighter-weight, textured luxury bath towel that delivers all the performance and versatility discerning towel lovers expect from Abyss.

Abyss Twill Towels: Luxury Beyond Super Pile

If you've spent any time perusing Fine Linen and Bath, you are certainly familiar with Abyss Super Pile towels. These plush, indulgent luxury bath towels boast a substantial 700 GSM weight for superior absorption, a choice of 60 colors, and a variety of sizes to suit your needs. They've rightfully earned their place as Abyss' best-selling towel, and our best-selling product. And we love them. But -- to be candid -- a heavy towel is not necessarily for everyone. Some linen lovers prefer a lighter, textured touch to their bath linens. That's why we're shining a spotlight on Abyss Twill, a stylish, textured towel that delivers all the beauty and performance you expect from Abyss.

Abyss Twill Has Elegance and Comfort in a Lighter Weight Towel

Abyss Twill showcases a unique textured twill that pleases the eye and stimulates the senses with an invigorating feel. Abyss towels are crafted from extra long staple Egyptian Giza Cotton, the finest on Earth, in a 500 GSM weight and available in all 60 Abyss shades. They are absorbent and durable while being quicker to dry. Let's take a deeper look at why Abyss Twill towels may be the perfect choice for you.

Twill Towels Have a Stylish Texture for a Sensory Treat

Abyss Twill Towels feature a distinctive lined texture that goes beyond aesthetics. This design adds a touch of sophistication to your bathroom and provides a gentle exfoliating feel during use. It's a sensory treat that transforms the everyday ritual of bathing into a luxurious experience.

Absorbent Luxury in 500 GSM

Weighing in 500 GSM, Abyss Twill Towels are truly a mid-weight option (read about what GSM means in towels). These towels strike the ideal balance between absorbency and weight. Although they are lighter than their Super Pile counterparts, Abyss Twill towels are soft to the touch and highly absorbent, leaving you feeling refreshed and pampered after every use.

Legendary Abyss Quality and Craftsmanship

Abyss Twill Towels are woven entirely from Giza Egyptian Cotton. This specialty cotton is grown in the fertile delta of the Nile River and harvested by hand to preserve the integrity of the cotton fiber. The towels are then woven in the Abyss factory in Portugal by textile artisans who have honed their craft over generations. Abyss puts proportionately more weight into the pile of the towel than the base, which increases absorbency relative to their weight. Abyss Twill towels are finished with distinctive details like round bias tape trim for durability and piece-dyed after sewing to ensure color consistency of towel, trim, and label.

Quick Wash and Dry for Easy Care

One of the standout features of Abyss Twill towels is their practicality. With a lighter weight, they wash easily and dry quickly (ideal for anyone who appreciates a fast turnaround in their laundry routine or who wants a towel that dries quickly). At the same time, that convenience doesn't compromise on luxury, making these towels a perfect blend of form and function.

Complete Abyss Color Palette for Personalized Luxury

Abyss Twill towels are about more than performance: they are style setters available in all 60 Abyss designer colors. Whether you're looking to match your bathroom decor or express your personality through vibrant hues, Abyss Twill has you covered.

"Abyss Twill offers the identical color palette as Super Pile," said Fine Linen and Bath Brand Manager Erika Cellupica. "Clients can incorporate both styles into their bath to accommodate individual preferences. We regularly see couples where one partner chooses a Super Pile towel and the other a Twill towel in the same shade."

Abyss Twill towels also coordinate with the wider Abyss Habidecor collection, including the very popular Must bath rugs; Reversible bath rugs; and the Super Pile double bath mat collection.

A Versatile Range of Size Options

The Abyss Twill towel collection offers a range of sizes to suit your needs and preferences:

  • Wash cloth (12" x 12")
  • Fingertip towel (12" x 20")
  • Hand towel (17" x 30")
  • Large Hand towel (21" x 39")
  • XL Hand towel (23" x 43")
  • Bath towel (28" x 54")
  • Euro bath sheet (39" x 59")
  • Bath sheet (40"x72)

Abyss Twill bath towels are highly versatile. The XL hand towel is perfect for wrapping wet hair, and the standard twill bath towel works both for adults and as an oversized towel for children. Abyss Twill bath sheets also do double duty as the perfect beach/pool/yacht towel; select shades of the Twill bath sheet are treated to resist fading in UV sunlight. Abyss Twill towels air dry quickly in almost any climate.

Abyss Twill towels are all about beauty, performance, and practicality. If you're looking for a luxury bath towel with a lighter touch, it's time to embrace the understated elegance of Abyss Twill.

Note: Abyss has announced that the Super Twill family of towels will be discontinued in early 2024. This is too bad, as we really liked the Super Twill towel.
