I am very picky re: towels. The ivory set is just lovely. Not too rough and not too soft. Just right. Great feel to them and absorbent. Not too thin and not so heavy and thick that they take forever to dry. I am very pleased with them. Husband likes them too.
I searched high and low to find a nice set of towels - not too thick, not too thin - not too short, not too long - not too expensive, but not too cheap, not too much shedding after washing, etc. I guess the goldilocks principal of towel buying really.... I like towels that are simple - soft, fluffy, not too thick, hold color well, do not shed or fray and dry well within a short amount of time after use. I don't like to spend a fortune either. I like lots of towels for daily use and so does my husband. Cost has to be reasonable due to volume - we use a new wash cloth every day, a new hand towel and bath towel every other day so...it adds up. Fortunately, I think we've hit a good one with the Eileen West 6-piece Solid Color Towel Set. We got the ivory to get things started. The color is a very faint ivory - almost leaning toward an off white. I am used to darker ivory - the color of cream. This is definitely more white-like. We just got them so, I can't give 5 stars yet as I would only do that over time once we see how well they hold up over time with usage and repeated washings. For now, so far, so good. They washed well, dried well, had some lint in the dryer catch, but expected with first few washes. Color remains fine. Softness factor went up after washing. I would give them 4 stars so far. We will be back for more if they do well the next few weeks. The price was really good too. The towels got to us only a few days after placing the order. This seems like a good product so far. If we do end up loving them, only 3 other colors to choose from...too bad. I'll take it if they are worth it in the long run. Give them a try, if you are not a towel snob,.you will find these worth the price.
