Rated 5 out of 5áby 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.

Rated 5 out of 5áby TheDesertPup This towel is Ultra-Luxurious - WOW!!
I have read so many reviews critical of this towel, that I just had to order a bath & hand-towel set in Periwinkle blue to find out for myself. This color is rich, vibrant & happy!
The secret to these towels are the Egyptian cotton loops. They are very soft, fluffy, absorbent, and beyond excellent. Many reviewers here are complaining about the towels shedding lint in their dryers, & some people are even stating that their bathrooms & their bodies are full of lint...
This is simply NOT true, & these people are full of something else. Of course, the first few washes & dryer cycles will show lint on your lint screen. So clean it off & enjoy this towel for its luxury!
The Egyptian cotton towel is definitely softer, fluffier, & more luxurious than the other Premium towel that L.L.Bean sells. I highly suggest that you try at least one of these, & one of the other towel, & then compare for yourself...

Rated 1 out of 5áby luka11 Lint for life
I've had these towels for four months now and they are still shedding at an amazing rate. Every time I wash them, the strainer on the washing machine fills up with lint and we have to throw out the strainer every third time. When I clean my bathroom, my sponge is covered in red lint. I'm just about ready to donate these towels and start over. Before I bought them, I read the reviews and others mentioned a lint problem, but I trust LL Bean's products so I figured it wouldn't be that bad. Silly me. If you like your bathroom decorated with a uniform dusting on every surface of lint the color of your towels, then definitely purchase these ones!

Rated 3 out of 5áby liwa Not so absorbent
I bought these towels after reading many reviews, and went with the majority who said they were very absorbent. I agree with one reviewer who wondered if they were treated with something. They almost feel like towels do if you dry them with a dryer sheet, which I never do because it feels as if there is a repellent on them afterwards. The water is sort of pushed around your skin, not soaked up. The towels are very fluffy and thick and the color, soft teal is deep and looks good after three washings. Perhaps the towels will become "thirstier" with more washings? If not, I will not buy another set. These are not the worst towels I have ever used, just so, so.

áby Dogrrrl WORST SHEDDING EVER!
I bought these same towels a year and a half ago and had no problems. What happened???
I've NEVER had so much fabric come off towels! Washed three times this morning with extra rinses and still can't use them. Will wash them again tomorrow. A handful of cotton came off after I hung them up, not to mention the full-and-then-some lint trap from the washer to the sink. I would've had to call a plumber if I didn't trap all of this.
I'm not going to the trouble of sending them back after putting this much work into them.
Does anyone there actually try these things out? Wash them in a top loading machine and hang them to dry and you'll see what I mean.
I expect better from LL Bean, I really do. I thought I was going to avoid this problem by shopping with you rather than at the bog box store nearby.

LLBEAN has always been the go to company for years in my household. These towels are thick and sinful and the bath mat is as well. I will look forward to years of wear from them.

Rated 1 out of 5áby Hairless Ultra Absorbent Cotton Towels
I have found the "Ultra Absorbent" towels not "Absorbent!" The towels in hotels/motels are more absorbent! I have kept them, but I sure would never order them again!! And, the Bath Sheet has finally quit shedding...it took six months!! The residue ended up all over the bathroom and filled the dryer vent.

These towels are thick, fluffy, and truly "ultra-absorbent." They keep their color, and these same colors are always available. This is the second time I have ordered these towels, not because the older ones wore out, but because I wanted more of them!
