I've bought teema towels and other Turkish towels but cacala have been my favorite cotton towels. Most cost efficient, best value.
I bought this blanket for picnics and also the basement, which gets cold.
The blsnket is small when folded and truly queen size when laid out.
It is very soft and pretty. Subtle diamond pattern and a nice red. I don't like red, but this one isn't orangy. It's perfect. Unisex and stands out nicely against the green grass. Great for photographs.
All Cacala purchases came tied neatly with a ribbon that had a hand painted small rock at the bottom. I'm saving them for wrapping gifts.
Final note: The weight of the blanket is not enough for cold, snowy winters. It is better for Fall. Still warm. Good car blanket if you keep an extensive emergency kit in yours.
I have not washed it yet, but already know turkish cotton really does dry fast.
