Hi. These towels are very soft and they are also very beautiful. I got the garnett red & the dark brown. I do love them, but my only issue is that they have been washed four or five times and they still shed. There are little red fuzzies all over the shower floor after I dry off, and the lint filter in the dryer is still full after they are dried. When will they stop!? Soon, I hope. They feel terrific, though!
