This is the 2nd round towels I've gotten recently from Overstock. The first was an Egyptian cotton set. These were Supima Cotton, 2 full towels and a hand towel. They're a great color, soft and absorbant. They are not as thick as my Egyptian cotton. On the other hand, when washed, they don't lint like mad and they've held up far better to washing without any sign of a frayed seam - I rather think they're better made. Some towels feel - well - slimy when damp. These definitely don't. And I could get just the towels without having to buy a set, which I liked.
