These towels are extremely thick and fluffy. After the first washing, I did notice some strings from the selvage edge of one hand towel. But I have washed them several times since and no more unraveling. I have the black set and the color has remained rich looking. My only complaint is the fabric has a slight odor, sort of like black licorice. It is not offensive. Seems to be dissipating after four washings.
