These are fluffy but huge! I like them, and the match the bath sheets we bought to match, but I didn't realize they were so big. They are not standard US sized hand towels. Also, the stripes are horizontal, which meant we couldn't use any of our previous towel that had vertical stripes, so be warned.
I bought these for use with the bath sheets of the same style. The hand towels are nice and large. I like the texture/striping because for me it makes it less boring that plain white ones. They are less absorbant than more traditional towels but are a nice quality and so far have held up through several washes.
These towels are fantastic. I washed them right out of the box and expected to find a ton of lint in the dryer, but there was none! They are thick and very good quality. I wouldn't call them plush, which was to be expected because of the pattern stitched into the cotton, but they are thick and comfy.
I like that these towels are soft, absorbent and oversized. They are larger than other hand towels, which is just the right size for washing my hair in the sink. When chemotherapy made my hair fall out, these towels were perfect for me to wash/massage my scalp daily without having to take a full shower (and drying out my skin more than necessary). I only wish they made these in a plain weave, as the stripey texture doesn't go that well with my other towels.
