These are the best towels I have purchased in 40 years! Super absorbent and very soft. Do not use fabric softner as that coats fibers. They are made in the USA. I talked with the owner at length...what a great story of wanting to keep it all home grown and home made. Called the headquarters in California to order the hand and face cloths as Overstock did not have them. They are coming out with quite a few additional colors in the next couple of months! Don't buy any other kind until you try these....because you won't buy another brand again!
