These towels are undeniably thick and heavy. They are luxurious. However, it was disappointing to find pulled threads on all of them. To get an occasional loose thread is expected. I had to take the scissors on some and cut them because the threads were not just puller, but broken. All in all, these are really nice, however, I had better success with the Supreme 800-gram Cotton Hand Towels (Set of 6) towels sold here at Overstock.
