I ordered these very nice, thick and absorbent towels. Could not be more happier. I ordered one set in Red and one in Black and they are true to color. The RED is RED, like Christmas Red, exactly what I wanted as I was having a very hard time finding until now. Upon arrival, I washed and dryed them, no problems what so ever. I was expecting a really long dry time due to the thickness, but if there was any extra time, it wasn't outrageous as some thick towels can be during drying time. I have received many compliments on them, as they are very well made and the seams are finished, leaving a very small possibility of unraveling as lower end towels can do. Very well made towels. Highly recommended.
