I received these towels today and what a pleasant surprise! These Rayon from Bamboo towels are the softest, most luxurious feeling towels I ever experienced! I don't know what method is used in producing this material but whatever it is.....I love it!!! I was looking for items that are larger than hand towels and smaller than bath sheets.....just the right size for wrapping around my wet hair after showering - very lightweight and ultra-absorbent. I could have bought similar sized towels from a "major department store" but they were just run-of-the-mill, bulky and "blah" (for around $4.99 each). I took a chance on these based on customer reviews; a bit pricey but I got exactly what I paid for and my family deserves the best! Haven't washed/dried them yet, but I think using a low dryer setting will keep the fabric in fine condition.
