An excellent value and product overall ... I was a little disappointed in the color "Toast" when I received the items - the color wasn't what was shown in the photo but the color has grown on me. The towels did "shed" quite a bit in the washer and dryer the first time I washed them, but not nearly as much in subsequent washings. The towels are well-made, soft, and very absorbent ... I am very happy with them!
