The towels feel and look nice, but when you wash them, the lint is tremendous. I bought this set in aqua and I bought a different set of towels (which didn't shed at all) in a darker blue. I was picking lint off everything. I had put the darker set of martex in with the light and the dark ones were covered with lint. I tried washing the dark ones a second time and they still had light blue fuzz all over the dark blue. All my towels are a mess now. I don't know how long it will take to get the fuzz off the darker towels and am afraid to even use the light aqua ones at all.
I purchased these Martex towels based on the reviews and the excellent price. I go through bathroom hand towels so quickly because the more expensive brands just don't last. I use many face cleansers that have ingredients that bleach the towels - so every few months I'm repurchasing towels. It doesn't make sense to spend so much for towels that lose their color, don't wash well and are expensive. These Martex towels are absorbent but not too thick and wash well for a good price. I also use them for kitchen hand towels to dry dishes - they are better than any other dish towels I've tried. I would definitely repurchase them and would purchase the wash clothes next. If you go through hand towels as quickly as I do, then these Martex towels are great. I purchased the Khaki which is comparable to a taupe/beige color.
