I purchased a set of the grey towels. The instructions were to wash before using them as they shed. I washed them 3 times prior to using and they continue to shed on my body and in my tub. Being a contact wearer, the fiber is getting in my eyes because I wash and dry my hands prior to inserting the contact lenses. It has made a mess of my washer and dryer. In addition, the towels have ***** in certain areas. I never washed them in bleach but it looks like I have. So thoroughly disappointing and a waste of money.
