I had forgotten this was a 5-piece set--there is only one hand towel but two washcloths and bath towels. Had to go back and check the description when it arrived because I thought a hand towel was missing. (No idea why they don't give you two.) They didn't leave as much lint in the dryer on the first washing as other towels have and survived the wash very nicely with their original plushness intact. The one complaint I have, if you can even call it that, is that the washcloths are on the small side. They are so thick that they are a little stiff, so if they were larger this wouldn't be an issue. But overall, good quality and they are gorgeous!
