These little guest towels would be darling EXCEPT for the 3" strip on each one without any velour or loops! This is obviously done on purpose, but why? The thin woven 3" strip on each one is about an inch up from the fringe on one end feels rough like muslin material! It is not at all pleasant or useful in drying ones hands. The woven 3" strip leaves just a hair over 12" X 11" of towel that is useful! It may as well be a washrag! Don't waste your money on these!
