I bought this set and washed it . It shed a lot and took a very long time to dry. I decided to use them right away to see if I wanted to order more since ordering towels is such a Russian roulette. the towels are soft but not very absorbent. I washed them again , more lint came out and over 60 mts in the dryer. I will definitely put them out of use. Some reviews are good so I believe that within each product there are great variations depending on the batch. I have bought towels from OV before that I had to return so I am done with ordering towels online.
