One towel out of two was great, the other had some pulls in the material. I decided not to return because I thought the pulls were not that big of a deal. Be prepared to dry them for a long time, they are very thick. I have washed them twice and there is still alot of lint in the dryer, to be expected on such thick towels, but needed to remove lint half way through the drying cycle on the second wash as well. I wonder how many washings these towels will continue to dump lint?? Otherwise, good heavy thick towels. I would have given it 4 stars if one of the towels did not have those pulls in it.
