I ordered these because of the aqua color. I was so surprised by the thickness and size of the towels. They are big, soft and thick. Normally I don't use thick towels because they tend not to be as absorbent. These do a fine job. Do not use fabric softener, that really decreases the absorbency of any towel. Buy these towels, they are great and the "O" has aqua floor mats and shower curtains that match .
