I have tried these towels, I actually got them 20 percent off at a sale. I am a frugal person and like to get a good deal when I can. Now the towels are made by . I have never used this brand before, the Dan River brand and from the start they seemed to be super soft. They were thick and very absorbent, which are excellent qualities for towels for sure. I have washed and used them quite a lot.Because I like to test these things out before writing my thoughts and sad to say they are starting to frayed a tiny bit, but nothing major but I was really hoping for a longer time without them fraying. So I like them for what they are super absorbent and soft. This is actually something I purchased myself.
