Thought these were so fabulous when I first received them. Huge, plush, thick and luxurious......then I washed them. I had to cut a huge handful of strings from all of the towels, hand towels and wash cloths. So many loops pulled out that there are runs in the towels. Save your money and don't buy these! Buy your towels at a department store where you can actually return them if they fall apart! I bought them in 3 different colors and every single one of them looked terrible after washing.....they actually look worse than the 10-year-old towels that I was replacing!
