I've only had these napkins a short time. I washed them immediately, regular wash cycle and dryer cycle too. They stood up, and came out o f the dryer with few wrinkles. I like the larger size. I use old tablecloths from the 50's and 60's (think Mad Men) and the print and colors on the napkins get along with all of the wild color combinations of the cloths. So if you use just place mats or solid cloths, you should love these. Besides, Overstock has such a customer friendly return policy, how can you go wrong?
