These towels came shortly after I ordered them. I laundered them immediately and they laundered well. Drier lint much as expected for laundering new towels, which is to say quite a lot of lint, but no more than for regular laundry items. After laundering, I noticed one washcloth had pulled terry loops all the way through the length of the item. I called OS.com and they immediately took care of the problem. I have to wait to hear back from their group that will search for this item for me, but they did not give me any heartache about just returing the one washcloth. I was very relieved to learn that I didn't have to send both sets of towels and washcloths back. Color was butter yellow and is as advertised. I'm very pleased with the purchase overall.
