Ah, bliss! These towels are so soft, and yes, absorbent, and the set covers all needed sizes. I grew up with scratchy ancient cotton towels, and then embarked on a lifetime of rather heavier newer ones, but always found them too thick. Then I discovered bamboo towels from a place that doesn't ship in a town I no longer live in. I also ended up giving away a complete set to a besotted friend. No looking back! I also liked the color selection at Overstock and wanted something that was a little bit offbeat, so chose the tangerine red. This is actually a perfect, muted orange that picks up the rather discrete orange in my slate bathroom tiles, so it's a dramatic effect now. To wash them is fine. I don't use a drier, so give them a good shake to bring up the pile before I hang them to dry, and when I put them out for use.
I can't believe how soft thee towels are - my husband even remarked and he never noties towels! They are not very thick though, I was a little surprised they were thinner than I expected. I was missing 1 wash cloth but OS sent it as soon as I called.
Because the price was so low, I found this to be a good purchase. One of the handtowels came unraveled on the edge when laundered, but I can sew that up and sending back all the pieces was too much of a hassle. The absorbent qualities of these towels are very good and I bought them for my motor home because they dry so fast. The color is not very true--a rather poisonous shade of pea green instead of kiwi, but OK for the motorhome. All in all, for the price, a good buy and maybe the other colors are more true.
I was first introduced to bamboo cloth products about five years ago and have been a fan ever since. This set of Rayon from Bamboo 6-piece Towel Set is no exception...the feel is like silk, it absorbs quickly and leaves your skin glistening against the elements. I will buy nothing but bamboo towels or sheets...try it...you'll never go back to flannel, or whatever cotton count you previously used. Oh la la.
These are by-far the best purchase I've made on Amazon. I LOVE THESE TOWELS. They are soooo soft and nice. They are not fluffy like your regular towels, but those towels tend to feel more rough. These are the best towels I have ever used. They are heavier than normal cotton towels and oh so soft.
