These towels were the thinnest towels I've ever purchased--as my husband said, they remind him of the dried, folded-up towels that you put in water to make them expand. The product description should really warn customers of the fact that these towels are very thin--that they are NOT thick and fluffy. Admittedly, they are surprisingly absorbent. However, they are already starting to fray after just one wash. I am very disappointed, given their cost.
