Unraveling after just two washes
I was prepared to love this towels. I bought one set of the Pima cotton and one set of the Egyptian cotton. They were super soft and seemed great after the first wash. But sadly they are unraveling at the edge after just two washes.

The towels are large and very soft, not as thick as I thought they would be though.
They are made in India and say 100% Pima cotton, the care instructions made me concerned though:
Wash in cold water
Dark colors may bleed
Tumble dry on low
I bought the white towels so I use warm water and medium heat, after the first wash there was very little lint. If you buy dark towels you should soak for one hour in cold water and white vinegar to set the dye, if you buy dark colors then always use cold water and low heat.
EDIT(11/21/14): the washcloths have bad stitching, one of them unraveled when I washed it but the rest of the set is holding up so far. One star off for that. I've noticed that the stitching of all linens nowadays is poor, they don't make them like they use to.

love these towels
well I waited five months of washing them twice a week before I reviewed them...I washed them in our washer ( now I don't know if its the washer or not, ours is a new machine, with several different combinations, so I wash ours on casual, in warm water, plus we don't have a convention agitator in our machine so that there might also make a difference) and they are still like new, color is wonderful, and they still have the fluff and thickness to them. As I said before maybe its the way they are washed and the machine that they are washed in, but mine are colorfast, no fraying, still fluffy and look like they did the day I bought them, which is contrary to a lot of the reviews on them. I am very happy with my purchase

I did a lot of research and considered the negative reviews about these towels...odor and fraying. However, most comments were positive. I ordered the towels and washed them as recommended by reviewers...gentle cycle in cold water/vinegar....then with detergent in cold water. Then dried on low heat/gentle cycle.
So, 5 hours after receiving the towels, both towels had unraveled at the hems. The wash cloths and hand towels were unscathed.
I advised 2DayDeliver, and they refunded the purchase price, so now I'm shopping for towels again. You won't waste your money, because 2DayDeliver stands behind their products, but stay away from these towels...huge disappointment.

Perfect for everyday home use, one quality issue!
I bought four sets of these towels (after doing nerdy research on weight, fibers, etc) I bought these to replace our worn out, scratchy, college-style towels which had no matching hand towels or wash clothes. What a difference it made! 650 gram weight seems like the perfect weight for bath towels. Nice and soft, with a little weight to them, but not so much weight that you feel like you are draped in a comforter! Overall we are happy with the purchase however there was one issue:
Out of a total of 24 towels, one of the hand towels had bad stictching. The seam where the towels hold the tags was ripped. I thought I'd try my handywork (Check out the pic) by sewing them back on myself, but when I tried to remove the bad stitching, the whole seem pulled apart. I spent the next 10 minutes sewing the entire seem by hand minus the tags. I have to say, I now feel like an expert! Time will tell if it holds up though!

Second Washing Issue
The towels seem like great quality, are soft, descent size, color is great but one of the bath towels has come unstitched on one of the edges on the second washing so not sure about the quality, we'll see how the rest hold up as time goes on. Towels were ordered on 7/17/16 and today is 8/27/16 so they are new towels but past the return period apparently as the option is not available. The towel now looks like a very old towel :(

These are very soft,
These are very soft, but when we washed them before using them the first time one of the side seams completely unraveled on a bath towel

Just as some other reviews have stated, an edge was unraveled when I received it or unraveled during the first washing. I never use/wear anything new until washed. After I did this and hung up one of the hand towels, I noticed an edge unraveled about 5 inches long. Have not inspected all the other towels because I'm going to send them all back. It's hard to believe 2DayDeliver keeps selling this product when the reviews continue to reveal the same defect. So, why did I buy it after having read previous reviews first? I just could not imagine the problem had not been solved or that the other bad reviews were an anomaly.

The TL;DR: Somewhere between affordable and luxurious. Good, but would be better one or the other.
I'm content with these but they make me wish I'd spent just a little more on a higher weight towel. They're nice, but to be honest I've always been very thrifty with linens, yet these aren't even close to the nicest towels I ever had. Those died a sad death a few weekends ago in a plumbing emergency, and it was time for new towels.
They were definitely nicer after that first wash, and no color transfer when washed the second time with other clothes (first wash was warm water, second and subsequent will be cold water, you'd be amazed how good modern detergents work and cold water and it makes everything last longer.) I could see these getting beat up with too much heat -- take it easy on them and they're decent towels. Warm, but not toasty. Thick, but not luxuriant. Good-sized, but I'm on the small side, ymmv.
They're just at a frustrating place between affordable and luxurious, so it is two kinds of vaguely unsatisfying instead of one kind of "cool! I got a really (good deal / incredible product)!!".
Karen's philosophy of towels: go big or go home (and count all the money you didn't spend). Lesson learned, next time, I'll go big. Big and fluffy.
