I bought four apricot and four chocolate 3-piece towel sets. Two years later, they are still super soft and absorbent. After 6 months, I added white vinegar to the wash to maintain absorbency - it has worked. The only complaint is that it took about 8 Washington for the dark towels to stop bleeding. I added Shout color catchers to each wash so the towels wouldn't bleed onto the other items in the wash. It worked. I'm very pleased with these towels and will buy them again!!
I bought the red towel set, as well as 2 of the oversized bath towels. I have washed them 3 times (using different methods) and they are still bleeding. BADLY. I went to use the washcloth this morning and it looks like I'm wringing Koolaid out of it. Other than THAT, which is pretty big if you ask me, the towels seem decent.
I am very disappointed with these towels. I ordered the moss color which matched perfectly with the slate in my bathroom. However, after washing the towels two or three times there are now yellow/gold spots sporadically on the bath towel. I know you may be thinking bleach, but I absolutely did not use any sort of bleach. I just moved into a new home and I haven't even used bleach in the washer yet. Makes me wish I would have paid more for better quality.
Nice gift towels for my daughter's new home. She tried them out and now LOVES them so much (she was going to use them just for company) decided to switch her regulars for the gifted 'company' ones. She asked where to find them as she wants MORE! She says these really dry you well, and also 'hang dry' very well*--plus are soft and thick. *(We live in a humid area and this feature really helps).
