The napkins are beautiful-looking. The table looked great and they matched the tablecloth perfectly. However, when I washed them, as directed, the ends frayed and threads were hanging all over. That was with the very first washing. Now I have to trim the napkins before I can use them again. A little disappointed.
I purchased two sets of the "Steel Blue" for Christmas dinner. I will be using my grandmothers¿ china and the steel blue matches well with the flowers in the china. Modern twist on a classic; I am using the china with a black table cloth and silver accents. I wanted a little color to pop and found these cloth napkins are beautiful and do the trick. They seem to be made well, I washed and dried them last night and they did not need to visit the iorn! Got to love that. Only thing is they are not absorbent. Just make sure you have some Viva paper towels nearby for any spills. Merry Christmas !!
If you don't expect the overall virtues of linen or cotton (such as absorbancy), these are nice...and they have virtues of their own, in that there is a nice selection of strong, true colors, they are generously sized, are cut "on the square" so they lay nicely, and I expect them to wash well. I don't know what to expect for durability but know I'll have gotten my money's worth...as is always my experience at Overstock.
I am very happy with the napkins. I just took them out of the dryer and they require no ironing. The original fold crease is still in the napkins, but I don't think it warrants ironing. The "rolled" hem is just fine after washing in cold water and perma press dry. I'm thinking about ordering a coordinating color. Thanks Overstock.
I was so looking forward to receiving these napkins. The finish is not well done. It is a rolled finish which shouldn't be a problem but it is with these napkins. I washed them and they look worse. It is a disappointment but I needed them for a dinner party and have used a few of them. Unfortunately, I was looking forward to ordering more things from Overstock but would hesitate now. I received the order within a few which was a good thing.
