These towels are soft and absorbent. When I ordered them I thought I was getting six hand towels but it is a complete set of two bath towels, hand towels and washcloths. The color was a bit darker than what is shown on screen but I would order them again.
The first time I washed and dried these towels (I purchased the 6-pc set) an ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE amount of lint--actually the material--separated from the towels. It seemed that the soft areas of the towels simply SEPARATED from the towels--my machine and dryer were FILLED with continuous BLANKETS of this lint. It was incredible.The other reviewers are happy with these towels, so it may be I purchased (April 28, 2009) a BAD set of towels. I am certainly going to return these!
This towel is not thick and plush at all! nuthing like I had hoped for after finally acquiring some towel money from my tight budget I was excited to get some plush towels. Folks these are not it, I got black ones and washed and dried them they collect lots of lint and they did not fluff at all. Booo!
These towels are so big, soft, and pretty I can't beleive I got such a good deal on them. Don't use fabric softener or they won't be absorbent, they are plenty soft enough without softener. They are more like bath sheets than towels. Love them.
I always read the reviews before I buy something from Overstock, and it is fascinating what people think is acceptable or unacceptable. These towels, for instance: they looked fine and sounded fine, and today they arrived shrink-wrapped within an inch of their lives in a filthy plastic envelope far too small for a good set of towels, and sure enough, they were thin and pretty pathetic when I finally did get them open. And, of course, when I approached Overstock about returning them, the process was made as difficult as possible, and I finally realized the huge return shipping fee they demanded did not make them worth returning. While I occasionally end up with something I actually like from Overstock, more often looks are deceiving, and returns are too difficult and expensive. Will I NEVER learn?!
I ordered the gold set and the ivory set of towels. I am pleased with the quality. The only complaint I have is that the ivory has a pinkish hue to it and doesn't really go in my bathroom of earth tones. Still a great value though. I would order these towels again!
For the first time I was not sold on my purchase. I received these items about 3 weeks ago and after 3 or 4 washing they are beginning to show signs of wear. I can't believe this. At this point I'm not going to try and bundle these up and send them back but they are not holding up like they should. The satin edge is beginning to ravel. I've nothing but good things to say about my purchases here but this time not so much.
I was hesitant at first to order towels online because my family is very picky about the towels they use.(I know, pretty freaky, huh?) However, these were such a good buy, I decided to try them. Wow! I was so glad I did. They are thick after washing, soft, absorbant, and really, the best towels my family and I have had. They are big, too. I will always look for these towels on Overstock as they are the best towels for the money. You can't beat them--ANYWHERE!
The price was great. I was hesitate at the toast color, if I would match my current towels and rugs. However it was a perfect match. They seemed thin when that arrived. But after I washed them they fluffed up. I find them very absorbunt and Iuxurious. AnnofCarrollton
I have bought many, many towels in the past 30 years and without a doubt these are the best towels ever. I wash them weekly with a little bit of Woolite and 3/4 cup of white vinegar. Very minimal lint is left in the dryer lint trap. They absorb water quickly and do dry fast. Going forward these will be the only towels I purchase.
these towels are wonderful. really absorbant with room for more. the towels i had before were not very absorbant even though they were 100% cotton. they dry my hail really well and the size is good for wrapping around the whole body!!! they do dry well overnight too and quickly in the dryer. they wash well and do not leave a lot of lint behind!
Ordeered these because my strong, reasonably fit husband compllained that the heavy weight set I ordered before thinking he'd love them, were so heavy that he found them too much to handle whern he was tured. Frankly, so did I. These were just as good looking, the colors true, the towels were soft and easier to wash andf we both admittted they were better. So I ordered more.
