The Abyss Super Pile is regarded as one of the finest cotton towels available anywhere in the world. An independent institute in the USA found Super Pile to test "Best." Abyss Super Pile was tested alongside a minimum of five other luxury brand towels. The towels were tested in "white" and "persimmon" colours. After 50 washings, the Abyss towel proved to be:
- The only towel which withstood 50 wash cycles without signs of falling apart.
- To be the most colour fast.
- To become denser and more absorbent with washing.
- To be 20% more absorbent than the next best towel.
Abyss towels are made of pure 100% Giza 70 Egyptian Cotton in all three weaving directions (warp, weft and pile). It is exceedingly rare for a towel to use pure Egyptian Cotton, let-alone in all facets of the towel. More weight is placed in the pile than in the towel base, allowing the towel to dry better than other towels of the same weight. As the base is also crafted from 100% Giza 70 Egyptian Cotton, it is also very strong and durable.
The pile of the towel is made of a double twist. This provides much greater strength, lower lint and superior absorbency. This also means if pulls or snags should occur, you can simply snip them off. This will not affect the towel.
The Mattress & Sleep Company tries our best to keep inventory in approximately 10 of the most popular colours in the 3 most common sizes (face, hand and bath towels). Please see the Delivery & Lead Times tab for more details.
Are you wanting something larger than a bath towel, but not quite so large as a bath sheet? Consider a pool towel. Pool towels are the go-to option for a generously sized towel.

The Mattress & Sleep Company recommends that you wash and dry at low-medium temperatures. Drying hot will greatly reduce the life of towels and rugs. Do not over dry. Do not use fabric softeners, bleach, brighteners or bleach alternatives. Always wash towels and rugs separately and never wash with other articles of any kind. Please do not vacuum or iron.
Using a high quality specialty detergent such as Le Blanc Linen Wash is a great way to maintain your luxury textiles. Le Blanc Linen Wash is an exceptional cleanser designed for all washable and colourfast bed & bath linens.

General Availability Advice
The Mattress & Sleep Company is a family owned and operated Canadian retailer who specializes in high-quality bedding, bath and mattresses from Canada, Europe and the USA. Our vast selection makes it impossible to stock everything. For this reason, our website does not offer real-time inventory availability as many of our products are made to order.
Please read the availability details above as we do make an effort to draw attention to products which are typically in stock in our Calgary, Edmonton and Sherwood Park stores and warehouses. For example, popular Ergomotion adjustable beds and Berkeley Ergonomics mattresses are regularly stocked in Twin XL, Queen and King.
