These towels were so much better than I ever imagined. We have always purchased bath sheets instead of bath towels. But, have noticed that many of them are sized very small. These are wonderfully huge and extra soft. No lint after first washing. No need for fabric softner in the wash, as they are naturally soft. I showed them to a friend and she was so surprised at the size and the weight of the cotton bath sheet. If you are looking for a high cotton count these are the ones to purchase. I highly recommend these !
