Rated 5 out of 5 by gottabecomfy Love these!!!
First off, I have realized, that towels are a bit like pillows..everybody is different in what they like and very picky! I am the same. These towels were suggested by a rep over the phone letting me know they were on sale. She said she personally loved them for the way they felt so soft, but were absorbent. Sounded like a winner to me, as my hubby and I complain about our various pricy thick cotton towels seemingly never drying out,even overnight and washing/changing daily. Yes, they do feel a little "slick" I guess what other reviewers are saying that don't like them, but we quickly got used to the "lighter" feel, not slick. And they are "ultra absorbent", and dry quickly. Not that I don't wash or change towels frequently, but they dry fast hanging on your towel rack. I love the various colors. Ordered the blue stripe ones first, and loved them so much, just ordered the periwinkle ones and a mat. Couldn't be happier with these! Now we don't switch back to the thicker ones, but have, and we are spoiled by these light, but soft and luxurious feeling ones! So to each his/her own, but hey, Bean takes back anything anytime you don't like it, so no worries.

I am just now replacing the set that I bought 7 years ago. They have been used hard, put up wet and withstood the abuse.

Rated 4 out of 5 by NoShoreLady Good quality but be careful on color
As always, LL Bean delivered a good product. Nice thick and fairly soft (although I'll wash and dry with fabric soft sheets for my extra sensitive skin). CON: The colors in the catalog are a bit off. The green color I got was actually lighter and kind of dull in person. So I returned for the darker green which should be fine.

Rated 1 out of 5 by bigedparker Horrible purchase
We bought a set of nice thick cotton towels.
We had bought a similar set from LL Bean several years ago that have been great and have held up nicely. We were looking for the same set in a different color.
However, these began to fall apart after one wash! We had not even used them yet. The quality is not what it used to be. A hole started in one, the edges frayed on another. We washed them with no other items in the washing machine.
We are huge LL Bean fans and are puzzled as to what is happening here.

Rated 5 out of 5 by QueenofOnlineShoppin wonderfully soft and absorbent
I've had a set of these Egyptian cotton towels for several years. We changed the color in the bathroom, so I needed a different color towel. Both sets are beautiful colors, and wonderfully soft and absorbent. I wouldn't purchase any other towels!

Ordered several set of towels. After the first week I noticed the seem of one frayed. Could be just a fluke but they are pricey so would have hoped for better. Will see how the others fair over time.

I recently renovated a bathroom and wanted deep red towels to complete the color scheme. The LL Bean towels have good color, are generous and absorbent, and the monogramming is well done.

Rated 5 out of 5 by IowaJames Absorbent and soft.
Excellent towels.....I've bought them for years. Give them a few preliminary washings and dryings and they are indeed "ultra-absorbent." I highly recommend them.

Rated 2 out of 5 by OhioShopper100 washed twice and unraveling
Nice texture, nice color, zero durability. Came out of second wash with unraveling on the long edge. The towels are finished on long edge with a turned hem rather than a woven selvedge, which is not so uncommon in discount store towels but surprising in a product sold as a quality towel. Shortly after receiving my towels, I ordered some as a gift and am chagrined to have overlooked the second-grade construction and sent I gift I am embarrassed to have given.

These are simply the best bath towels we have ever owned. It is truly a pleasure to use them.
