I LOVE LOVE LOVE these towels!!!! They are so soft and wonderful and they are super absorbent. My smaller towel is perfect for hair-which I have a ton! It really helps absorb the water. The bigger towel is just wonderful and its not like a beach towel-which I don't' like having to wash such large towels all the time. Also, and this could just be in my head, but these towel retain the fabric softener smell even after a few days!! I love that I can get a towel off the shelf that smells like I just got it out of the dryer~~ Great towels! You should definitely buy them! Oh, and I have cats...these towels have withstood the kitty claws and did not pucker or pique!!! yay!
