This is bigger than I thought it was going to be. Made in El Salvador it measures approximately 16.0” x 24.5” and is made of 100% cotton. We purchased it to have some fun with this one renegade family member at this week’s Thanksgiving Day dinner. It’s nice to see that some of the sale goes to help a school in Pittsburgh.

Very soft material, well design, very affordable,but I have have to put it to the washing test. Will update my review after washing it !!!
Obviously you would have to be a Steelers fan, or at least be purchasing FOR a Steelers fan if you were going to buy this Terrible Towel. It's one in what seems to be an endless series of Towels. (I currently own six, none of which are the same.)
This is not going to be a good review, only in that a towel usually has one identifying characteristic: absorbency. I am NOT going to mop up any spills with a Terrible Towel. It's sacrilegious, and would potentially stain a perfectly good symbol of the Steelers' dominancy in the NFL.
Really, you can't go wrong with this or ANY Terrible Towel, as the proceeds go to charity. If it's not made by McArthur, it's probably a knockoff.
