Got these for some guests that were visiting. My first set of guest towels! Finally! I was told they are very lucurious and the experience was hotel like (could be just very polite guests). They wash well, didn't she'd ALOT and there doesn't seem to be any piling or pulling after couple washes.
These towels are highly absorbent and soft, while not being mushy. It's the cotton. I've had Turkish towels with good absorbency but somewhat rough with no pile which were inexpensive, and I've had French towels which are super soft but not all that absorbent but were very expensive. These hit the sweet spot. I'm going to order another set! The neutral color also adds a relaxing, spalike feel to my bathroom.
