I'm truly baffled by all the great reviews on these towels, because I am not at all impressed. Yes, the fabric is dense, but it is NOT soft and luxurious. I have purchased other towels through Overstock and loved them -- but not these. If the postage to return them wasn't so expensive I would send them back. Perhaps I was sent a different brand. That's the only explanation I can come up with to explain all the rave reviews.
