I love these towels. They are plush, absorbent and have very little lint. When I washed them the first time (right when I got them) I put 1 cup of white vinegar in the regular cold water wash with my normal detergent. Put them in the dryer and when I took them out there was very little lint in the dryer filter. This was the FIRST wash. I was very impressed. They are beautiful, thick and very soft. I have never had such nice towels. I would recommend them to anyone.
I bought the burgundy towels and they are a great color. The towels are thick,soft, and absorb water well; however, after two washings (with only towels) the towels are collecting pieces of lint. If appearance is important for you this is not a great towel unless you plan to wash them only with these towels.
I'm very impressed with these towels after using and washing them for over a month now. There has been barely any fraying, and they don't shed much lint at all with use--critical to us contact lens wearers! I'm hoping the Sand color is offered again so I can buy another set soon. Great purchase!
These are by far the best towels I've ever owned. I was amazed at how well they washed and dried. Absolutely no shedding and the band across the ends did not draw up like so many towels do. They are soft, thick and thirsty! You would expect to pay over $100 for a set of these towels. I wish they came in more colors, though.
I am a towel and sheet snob and love these towels. I bought the Amethyst and the color was exactly as seen online. It is a very nice dusty color. Longer than other generous towels I have purchased. Very soft and washes beautifully in cold water and on low in the dryer. Another website features these towels and states they are 650 grams. They are a little expensive for towels and would like more but don't need anymore hand towels and wash cloths. Thanks Overstock for such great quality and fast service.
I've been searching for a certain plum-hued towel for several weeks for my master bathroom, and I finally found it here. Not only is the web photo a true representation of the actual color, but the towels are soft right out of the box. I can't wait to use them!
These towels have just arrived and they are soft and plush. They are made with U.S. grown Supima cotton, which I like, but caution: they are not made in the U.S. as one reviewer stated. They are very generously sized. The description is somewhat misleading when it says, "set of six towels"; that is actually two bath, two hand, and two wash cloths. Those items--nice as they are--represent a good value for the money, but perhaps not an excellent one (as I have come to expect from Overstock). Just a little pricey...
I must say that I am very much impressed with the look, feel, and absorbency of these towels as well as how quicky I received them. Prior to receiving these towels, I can't tell you how many times I purchased from various stores and within one or two washings the color would have completely faded. I've washed these towels without any fraying or fading. They are just as soft to the touch as when I received them and their absorbency is remarkable. I definitely recommend these towels to anyone who is looking for great quality at a very reasonable price. I've even purchased a few as gifts for my family members.
