These towels are super soft and a great size. I didn't realize how worn down my older towels were until these arrived. They definitely need 2-3 wash/dry cycles to tame the fuzzy lint. Out of 11 sets of towels (22 large towels, 22 hand towels, 22 wash clothes), three large towels have unraveled in the interior towel looping. One washcloth became 'unseamed' after a wash cycle (hand stitched the seam back up, works fine now), and four towels have had fraying along the edge binding. Some careful snipping with sharp scissors have made the problem areas neater, but it was disappointing to have these problems when the towels are otherwise so nice.
I've had other so called luxury towels in the past, but these towels are absolutely the softest. They are also very absorbent without being too heavy. I have only washed them once (before using), so I can't really speak to how well they will wear. There was no pilling and no threads coming loose from the wash. They were a little more expensive than I've paid before, but the extra expense is definitely worth the luxury!
Some of the reviews comment that these are not "luxury" quality: if you're looking for thick/dense towels, then you may be disappointed. They are, however, very soft, attractive and well in the range of what I was looking for. I am picky about colors to in my Edwardian home. The bathroom walls are sage and buttery cream with warm oak-colored floors. I wanted a muted shade that would not be overbearing. The sage is pretty close to being grey, with just a bit of sage tone. I did not want towels that were so dense/thick that they would take 3 hours to dry either hanging in the bathroom or in the clothes dryer. These are not very thick but are very soft, which is what I was looking for. I washed and dried them. There were a couple of loose threads around the edges, but no fraying or funky shrinkage. I have enough confidenct in them to order another set today.
These towels are so soft and absorbent. I love the softness of them. Makes me realize how badly my old towels needed to be replaced. These are actually the best quality towels I think I've ever bought. Would buy them again but hope I don't need to for many years!!!
These towels are very luxurious. I bought the charcoal towels as a housewarming gift for someone else and I wanted them for myself. Needless to say I will be purchasing these for myself soon. Just a side note; the towels are very thick and may take a while to dry on medium heat. For the feel of the towel I don't mind that at all.
