Rated 4 out of 5 by H587 Fantastic gift
I was looking for a surprise gift for my girlfriend and thought she could use an upgrade on the skimpy towels she was currently using. Since egyptian cotton is so popular and readily available, I wanted to get her something different and saw this Turkish cotton alternative. Unfortunately they didn't even carry them in the store for me to personally review so I took a chance when I ordered them, but they came in incredibly soft and luscious - a great gift! The only downside is that after a few washes it seemed to thread a bit, giving off the impression that it was of lower quality... Not sure if her dryer is just rough or it really is the material - only time will tell!

The description is accurate in once sense "luxurious texture" these towels are thick spa "like" towels. Here is my story on my purchase. Purchased 4 at the store came home washed them one towel came totally unraveled at the seam (took back to store & did not replace) appeared the other 3 towels were doing ok but after about 3 to 4 washings I've noticed a couple of the other towels are coming undone at the seam. I had ordered more online but returned them after the towels I have at home are falling apart so soon. I'm going to stop shopping JCP....quality has gone out the door.

After years of putting off paying for Turkish cotton towels I finally broke down and bought these during a sale. I couldn't be happier and they were worth more than every penny (or Penney!). Yes, when you take them home and launder them the first time you'll have to clean out the lint trap a few times but that's what quality cotton towels will do. They are soft and thick, look great, are really absorbent, and they do NOT shed on you. They still look perfect after several washes as well.
I'm in love!

Rated 5 out of 5 by shazam214 LOVE these towels!
After searching for value and most importantly: quality, I finally found THE towels. These turkish towels are super soft, super absorbent and super thick all at a fantastic price! As a previous reviewer mentioned, when you launder them for the first time you'll have to clean out the lint trap a few times - but that's no deal breaker. They look perfect after several washes and keep their shape too. I will be getting more for the other bathrooms.

I have been searching for towels to replace my old Masterpiece sets which I purchased from JC Penney about 10 years ago. The Royal Velvet Egyptian cotton towels I bought were nice but I was waiting for the Turkish towels to go on sale. Luckily they did and I purchased 2 sets. They are thick, dense and absorbent. I don't think I will ever go back to regular cotton towels!

Rated 5 out of 5 by faulkton very soft, thick and heavy
I initially bought the royal velvet Egyptian cotton towels but the dye came out of them during the first wash and they had to go back. After that experience I decided to upgrade to these towels instead of ordering more with potentially the same problem dye. I'm so glad I did! These feel so much better than the Egyptian cotton ones. They're a lot heavier and overall have a much more weirdly feel to them.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Kricket528 Disappointed
Based on prior reviews I expected much more instead, the items seem ripped out with first wash, one of the colors left balls on the other one and I snag my ring every time I use the hand towel. Item is very thick and absorbent but disappointed overall with quality. Glad I go these on sale, but wish I had not bought so many.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ThePGHHostess very good towels
Was looking for high quality towels at a decent price. Remembered the Royal Velvet name from years back & saw JCP carried the line. These are good size soft heavy towels. Purchased both white & grey, bath, hand and wash cloths. Have washed once & saw minimal shedding (threw in the dryer 2 at a time after 1st wash as not to clog my lint trap)
