I started out buying just one test set because I was skeptical, but I didn't want any more heavy towels. They lost a lot of lint with first wash, but not since. I notice our other towels are losing their appeal - we seem to grab these again as soon as they're washed. We don't have kids and we're not very hard on our towels, so maybe these wouldn't work for everyone, but I'm attached to them now. Their super-softness makes them seem luxurious, even being so light, and I'm always surprised by how quickly they dry. I thought the color selection was drab, so I chose sand because it seemed to be least likely to clash - it actually highlights the off-whites of my bathroom and creates a nice contrast against my more colorful walls. I'll try sage next.
