I’ve never been too picky when it comes to bath towels. As long as they’re soft, wash well, and are long enough to fully wrap yourself in post shower, my needs are met. But then I tested Parachute’s Classic Turkish Cotton Towels for our Best List, and it hit me like a ton of bricks. It was the most luxe towel I’ve ever used, hands-down. They weren’t just the best overall towels on the list for obvious reasons, with Parachute being a much-loved editor-favorite DTC brand and all. It took one try to realize that it was just like a weighted blanket — in towel form.

After a few uses and washes, it consistently held up to how it felt the first time I tried it: Flatter and heavier than your average bath towel, with a very plush, sleek feel. The weight envelops you in the most soothing, comfortable way, and it gave me almost the same feeling as my favorite weighted blanket draped over me. It’s super plush and washes beautifully, keeping the high-quality feel. It’s also somehow quick-drying, using innovative Aerocotton Technology. With chillier months ahead, I’ll be reaching for this towel at every turn to keep me warm right out of the shower.

They’re made of 100% long-staple Turkish cotton and come in six pretty, muted hues (free of synthetic dyes) that would blend well with any bathroom style. I loved the Coal hue I tried: It was clean and modern, and along with its weight and chic factor, immediately struck me as the kind of towel that belongs in the bathroom of a $10 million home in Malibu. The kind with floor-to-ceiling glass windows and cutting-edge smart appliances. No, I’m not kidding — that was my exact thought! Maybe I watch too many HBO shows, but you get the gist.

At $29 dollars per bath towel, these are definitely a splurge, but right now you can save 20 percent off for Black Friday. If you’re looking to upgrade, these towels won’t let you down — especially if you have guests visiting. Don’t be surprised when they ask you where you got them. As for me, I only wish I made the discovery sooner and will absolutely be ordering more!
