After just one wash, these towels (et al) have worn like they are a year old. Many loose threads and the overall look of being picked. The price is great, but the quality reflects the low price. Maybe if they get broken a bit more, they will overall thread to the point it looks normal. As of now, I am not very satisfied with them. It is not just one set that did this, I bought four sets, same results across the board. You get what you pay for.
