If I could have given zero stars, I would have. I ordered four of these (eight sets total). The thinness surprised me, but Egyptian cotton towels are supposed to get fluffier as you wash them so into the washer they went. I washed half of them. Yes, there was lint, but no more than expected with the initial washing for Egyptian cotton towels. There were numerous pulls. One of them looked like it was covered in worms with all of the threads hanging off. They were washed without anything but the towels and in a front loader, so there was nothing to snag on. The next issue was how badly they shrank. For example, I compared one of the newly washed washcloths to one of the originals still in the package. It had shrunk about an inch and a half in each direction (yes, I followed the directions to a tee). The towels were misshapen from the decorative band shrinking disproportionally to the rest of the towel. Neeedless, to say I returned the whole lot. I guess I should have known that quality might have been an issue when this brand was not carried in the store - only online.

We purchased these same towels years ago and they were holding up well, but we needed new ones to match our remodeled bathroom. The new ones have been washed several times and I have had no issues with strings, runs or anything else. They are soft but absorbent and we couldn't be happier. The 6-pc set is a great bargain!

I only bought these towels because they matched what I wanted to replace. I read the reviews prior to purchasing and was not impressed. I don't plan on using these, there only for decorating.

I'm not sure what towels these other reviewers are describing that are rating them so low, but they're nothing like the ones we received. The towels produce a lot of lint in the dryer for quite a few launderings, but that's expected with NEW towels. We never had lint on our bodies. They are very plush and very absorbent and have kept their color after many washings.
