I recently purchased this towel as a gift and I'm almost embarassed to give it! It's absolutely adorable and goes with my theme but it's very thin. So if you're looking for a warm and snuggly beach towel to wrap up with after getting out of the water this is not it. I'm disappointed with the quality especially since it was a little spendy. However, will not be sending it back due to shipping to get it back to the store.....the nearest Target is over 2 hours away....so that will almost make it a wash.
