The towels in this 6-piece set were woven from 100-percent Egyptian cotton which provides for extra absorbency. These towels will make for an excellent update to any bathroom decor or linen closet.
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!
Luxurious? I don't think so! These towels were not as thick and fluffy as I would have thought. I was expecting a much higher quality product. Next time, I'll go to a store to buy towels so that I can see and feel before I purchase.
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 have bought towels of the same quality at Kmart. I washed them right away and I wasn't impressed. Not nearly as soft as other Egyptian cotton towels I have. You always take a chance when buying sight unseen. I'll keep them but wouldn't order any more of them. I can find better quality at a better price else where, Home Goods.
I have had many many towel sets in my life. I bought 2 of these Egyptian Cotton towel sets in blue. I and my family have used these towels for a couple weeks now. They have been washed. They come out of the dryer and looked like new. They are well made, the material dries body quickly and although they are a good large size (all of them) they do not shrink nor do they "discolor." These are the first towels I have used that did not discolor. There was a black stain on one of them. Usually this would mean that towel is ruined. The stain came out and the towel kept its color. I would buy them again and I would highly recommend them.
