not all MF towels are created equal... which one do you have? what weight and how many fibers per sq inch?
I used these:

Yes, the mitt was completely wet and still shedding into my rinse bucket and my ONR bucket.

To apply the Red Mist Tropical, I'd mist a little onto the paint a panel at a time, then spread with the thicker nap side of the towel, switching to the less plush side to buff down. This process introduced quite a bit of tiny lint fibers to my paint surface... not easily noticeable but definitely there.
