These towels are the most beautiful I have ever purchased. They are rich and whisk away all of the water and moisture from your body. They come out of the dryer fluffy and full, and as one other reviewer said that they hardly have any lint in the filter. Now that is a plus for me. I purchased some towels about 3 months ago , from a different retailer, and they were still filling up my filter as well as linting up my body and everything else way beyond the shedding stage, in my opinion. I gave them away to someone that really needed towels. No shedding, not with these wonderful towels, hand towels and wash cloths. I will definitely recommend these to anybody who wants quality!!! Thank you, Overstock.com, you have come through again. I am truly happy with your service!!
