The set consists of eight hand towels, each about 15" x 29". I ordered the burgundy, and I am very happy with the rich color. The towels are mid-weight. They seem to be of good quality. Each has a loop sewn into the binding so they can easily be hung on hooks. I am using mine as kitchen towels. I hope they will stand up to heavy use and lots of washing. I have already washed them once with no problems.
