SO LINTY- which is to be expected with them being 100% cotton- just be aware! I knew I would use them and have been eyeing them since I first got my take back bags, but I didn't expect all the lint right out of the bag- a cloud of lint when I initially shook them out. The colors are vibrant and don't seem to bleed (I've washed them twice so far with very little detergent to try and get as much lint out as possible before actual use). The size of both are large and I think they're going to be great for using when roadtripping or staying with others- you definitely won't forget these or mistake them for someone else's towels! The ends are starting to fray with the 2 washes I've done, again, expected, but I'd make sure the knots are extra secure and tightened before washing so they don't unravel or loosen too much. The shipment came timely and quicker than expected. Would buy again if I could afford a set tbh!
