Towels provide good absorbency, ribbed texture was desired for appearance in bath. I like the towels but not the color description. the color is not the gray I expected, and I considered returning them. They have a green cast. It works in the bathroom well enough but is not ideal. I will stick to white in the future to avoid this issue.
These towels are very absorbent on the medium to heavy weight scale. Since receiving them I've washed and used them and there's no fraying of threads which I attribute to good workmanship. Thank U OS, I'll be back to get the plum.
