I am very content with my towels after they have been washed and dried.I do not enjoy them being too soft,they just do not seem to dry me as well after being in a dryer, as when my towels have come from the line drying in the breeze and sunshine!!
After I line dry.
To be really honest I like my towels hard.
I love the roughness, as I dry my skin...plus we never use them again, they go in the wash.
I don't like the idea of dead skin on a towel once it has been used.
