I bought these towels because they were organic cotton and advertised as being oversized and absorbent. I found that neither of these were true. I washed and dried the towels three times before using. They shrank a bit (being cotton) and definitely are not that absorbent. They are now in the pile to go to donation.
Beautiful, incredibly soft, amazing quality, and the best part is that they are very absorbent! I really love these and am so glad I got them. I turned my old junky towels into cleaning rags and now only use these!
