I took a gamble and bought these luxury cotton towels - it was an excellent price so I figured it would be a deal even if the towels were more toward average. They aren't! They live up to their billing, they're heavy from the pile of cotton in the towels and wash cloth. They dry you and every time I use them I think how much if's like being in a fancy hotel. Now I need to get a towel warmer for the bath room to make the experience perfect. BTW: I ordered two more packages after I got the first one and realized how great they were.
