I am very disappointed in this towel. Size: The actual measured dimensions are 25 X 50" not as advertised. The advertised dimensions are 27 X 53".
We had two zero twist cotton towels 30 X 58" another brand/another source on sale $1 more. When I saw the Sierra sale and usually love your products I purchased on line to easily add to our collection thinking the size would be "okay".
Care: The on line care "machine wash/dry" statement is not full disclosure as the tag on the towel says "delicate wash cycle" so I did.
I also tumbled dry low to be extra careful.
What would you do? Return, pay postage and forget it I guess.

I washed them before use, but they did not absorb water well. A second wash may have helped a little - perhaps they had a non-absorbent coating on the threads that is useful during manufacturing. I hope more washings help. If not, I may still ask for a refund. (Have never done that after using an item; have always had good service from STP.)

Really soft and luxurious feel and beautiful color. The size is much smaller than the bath towels I'm accustomed to. I don't use the large bath sheets but my other towels are about 4 inches wider than these. The length is about the same, but I really miss that width. Also, I made the mistake of using this towel before laundering it, and my entire body was covered with black lint. Lesson learned. Even after washing, there is still a bit of a lint problem but that seems to be par for the course with good, soft towels. These would be great for a children's bath but they're a little small for adult use.
