Could ALL the Reviews Be Right?
After careful research and reading many of the reviews, pro and con for these towels I believe, after having them for the past two months, that everyone is correct. Those who said that these towels were plush and softer after each washing are correct. Those who said you can get as good, or better a towel from the big box stores are also correct. Here's my story. I purchased a set and was happy enough with them that two weeks later, I purchased another set of four. Shortly after the second purchase my wife tells me that Sam's Club is selling a towel that's bigger and looks just as good for $6.99. We've purchased towels from the warehouse folk before and they were like trying to dry off with the front door mat, so I wasn't too worried, but said we would get one just to see how it stood up. Here's the stats: The 2DayDeliver towels, (i.e. Soft Touch Linen) are made in Turkey under the brand name Chakir Linen. They measure 49 x 26 and weigh 21 ounces. The Sam's Club towel was sold under the brand name Hotel Luxury Reserve is made in India and measures 54 x 28 and weighs 25.5 ounces. This was after both towels were washed at least twice. The 2DayDeliver towel feels slightly thicker, the Sam's Club towel feels slightly softer. The only complaint that my wife had about the Sam's Club towel, it has three ribbings at the end whereas the 2DayDeliver towel has only one. She said these strips kind of get in the way. So far all towels are holding up pretty good, no fraying, or loose threads.
Also, be weary of the "also bought" line. I purchased the "matching" hand towels and wash cloths. Only they weren't really matching, not a big deal, but not even the same brand and, I thought, since I'm buying the bath towels they will no doubt just send the other merchandise with them. No. Got the bath towels on the Prime two day free shipping deal. Waited an extra four, or five days for the rest of the stuff, and paid a pretty good shipping fee for them as well.

Great Towel, Outstanding Value 4.5 Stars
I ordered these towels and an 2DayDeliver house brand Pinzon Egyptian Cotton 625 gram weight towel set at the same time. I was very pleased with both products. This towel is slightly softer, and a little heavier/thicker than the 625 gram Pinzon. While both towels are the same length the Pinzon is 4 inches wider. The Pinzon is made in Pakistan and the this towel is made in Turkey a country known for terrycloth robes and towels. Is this this heaviest, softest, nicest towel I have ever seen. No. If you visit a high end department store, you can find a thicker, softer towel, by a designer name that is better but it will cost you well over twenty dollars a towel, twice the price of these. These towels are a superb value at $10.00 each. This towel be as good or better as any towel you will find in the $15.00 to $20.00 range at Target, Lands End, and the like. I am at a loss to explain the handful of one and two star reviews for this product. If I had to give category grades I would say Softness A, Weight A, Size B+/A-, Value A+. I would order this product again without hesitation.

Not luxury towles
This is clearly not a luxury towel. I have a photo to show the lack of pile and nothing like advertised; 1/4 the height of the pencil. We are very disappointed, and buyers should beware.

Sand Paper Finish!
Mine came defective as you can see in the picture, refund requested.
Feels like a sand paper. Highly not recommended.Way far from any expectations for the offered price and nothing close to the term "Luxury".
Still can not believe how 2DayDeliver sells this product! If this is a genuine Turkish cotton, 2DayDeliver should hire some experienced buyers.

Very nice towels for a good price.
These are very nice and heavy towels. They dry excellent and are very soft. I purchased eight of them and washed them all together. In the future if / when I purchase more I will be sure to lessen the load. These towels had an excessive amount of lint and fuzz coming out of the dry cycle. Since then they seem to wash nicely. Everybody in my household fights over the new towels!
Update a year later! (12/23/2015)
These towels still remain intact and absorb water and dry nicely! I ordered another eight towels, and our year old towels are definitely not as "fluffy" as the new ones, but that is to be expected and are still fantastic towels. Highly recommend these towels for getting as close as you can to a "hotel quality" towel. Love them!

Bad, and seller fishes for good reviews
It was really rough. I don't know how everyone else can think these are so soft. In fact, I'm only writing this review because days after I initiated a return, the seller spammed me asking to write a review. What did they expect? Note to 2DayDeliver: Stop letting your sellers do this. I think that's how bad products like these get disproportionately high review scores.

equivalent to a nice hotel or spa quality
Ordered 12 Luxury Hotel & Spa bath towels as well as matching (same brand) 24 face towels, 6 hand towels, and 2 bath mats (44 total towels) on Thursday evening and they arrived on Saturday right before Christmas. They didn't have any off smells upon arrival and were soft. I split the laundry into 3 loads using 2 cups of white vinegar (generic brand) for each load and didn't use dryer sheets. They came out even softer out of the dryer; equivalent to a nice hotel or spa quality.
Here's some pics. I included an iron in one so you can put into context how thick the towels are. Also, as you can see, there were very minimal loose strands that had to be snipped after cleaning all the towels. Lastly, there was a small palm-sized amount of lint in the dryer's lint screen after every load, which was expected.
I'm very happy with the purchase. The quality, price, and timeliness of delivery deserves 5 stars.

I just love them. I want more when I feel like ...
These are so soft & feel luxurious to me. They are absorbent, too. I just love them. I want more when I feel like I can spend the money. I don't like spending $10 for 1 towel, but these are totally worth it. At some point, I want the wash cloths & hand towels, too.
Follow Up: Ordered some more. Didn't get the same design towels. They look the same, except these that I got today have a ribbed design on the ends. I hope they are at least the same quality. I actually ordered these right after I wrote the review above & got a phone case instead. I called, & they sent these out the next day. As long as the quality is the same, I guess it doesn't matter too much to me about the slight design difference. :(

Terrible quality and performance. Don't buy them. JUNK, a waste of money
These are Junk! Total disappointment with this purchase. After only two washings they come out looking terrible and ragged. First, these towels do not absorb the water from your body, it feel as though you are just pushing the water around your body from one place to the other.. Second they do not launder well, they have pills all over the whole towel that you can't get rid of. These are not good quality, don't waste your money. The people who wrote good reviews about these towels obviously received a different product than I did. I regret this purchase. Wish I could get my money back.

Soft, big, thick!
My S/O and I needed new towels. I picked purple, and he picked orange to my dissatisfaction, but that's love, baby. The purple and orange colors are exactly as pictured. They are nice and big...not bath-sheet big, but a very nice size, and they did NOT shrink after washing and drying (yay!). These are so thick and soft, especially after washing with fabric softener (the softer the better for me, personally).
I followed the directions to WASH SEPARATELY FROM EVERYTHING - probably because the color(s) will bleed and stain your clothes or other towels. More specifically, I washed the purple towels alone and the orange towels alone - so I didn't mix them at all. I dare say this is a must, since it seems like other people had bad experiences with color bleeding. That said, the color of the towels (if they bled) did not fade at all, and there's no evidence of color bleeding on my skin after I use the towels after a shower. You have to wash them first, though, which I think is basically common sense...
I haven't found these to pill, or "shed" lint in any way, either. My partner is SUPER picky about towels that shed lint on you, and I'm not particularly a fan either, but it doesn't drive me crazy like it does him. Luckily, these pass the test, and he's very happy, and so am I. I searched a long time for quality towels within our budget, and we are very happy with this purchase, even though they are a bit on the expensive side. I highly recommend these towels!
