Bought these bandanas a couple years ago for tie dying and they were perfect. Ordered them a few weeks ago for the same reason and they were totally different. They are thin and synthetic feeling. The dye was not absorbed and was actually repelled. I washed them and the dye absorbed a bit better but still def not the same quality as years ago. I would find another bandana to dye. Also could not get a refund from amazon without returning my half dyed falling apart bandanas which seemed like a waste so I took the $20 hit. Amazon needs quality control.
