These towels are a nice beachy color (I got seaside) and soft. They are fluffy and absorbent like a towel should be. I don't think they are the super crazy high quality that some people want them to be - they aren't a pound each- and yes the dryer had a lot of lint the first few times they get washed, but these are NICE. The price was good, the set arrives at your doorstep with 6 pieces for a great price. I am happy with them.
