I ordered both sets, the parchment and purple. They are gorgeous but the parchment, like the word, is an off-white, not like the photo in which they looked white. The bath towels are 6 ft long which is of course 72 inches as noted but I will probably cut them so they can fit on my towel racks.Otherwise, I'm very pleased and love how they look in my new bathroom.
The towels arrived within a week. I washed them in cold water and dried them on medium heat. There was some lint but expected. They maintained their blue color.tThey are beautiful, thick and great quality. The reason I gave them a four star because they do not dry as well I would like.
