These are the thickest, thirsty towels ever. The sizes of the bath towel and hand towel extremely generous! They have not shed even after several washings. They don't leave you covered in lint and are very soft! I bought them in Chocolate, Sage Green and Light Blue, all the colors were true to the pictures and have not faded. I wash only in cold water. I will be ordering them for a shower gift for my daughter! Thank you OS............Always great shopping with you!
