When I received these towels I wasn't impressed but decided to wash and dry them to see if they "fluffed up" After washing them once, they are very lightweight with loose threads coming from 4 of the six pieces. Maybe the people who wrote the recent reviews received different towels than I did. These are NOT "luxury" towels. For the price, I could have bought 2 sets of this quality towel at a discount store. This is the second linen purchase I have made from overstock and both had 4+star ratings but really should have had 1 star. No more linen purchases for me.
