Rated 5 out of 5 by RetiredGuy2 Premium Cotton Towel Set, Stripe
I purchased my second set of these towels today because they exceeded my expectations and have performed perfectly. Delighted with the soft texture and negligible pilling exhibited by this set of towels.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Mplsone Disappointing
I have been ordering my bath towels from LL Bean for many years and have always been extremely satisfied with the quality, until I got these towels. The bath towels have both frayed significantly after only a few washes. If I could figure out how to return just the bath towels, I would.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nightfinder Good Quality
These are very nice towels--dense, heavy, good-sized, but I returned them because the colors were pale/subdued. I'll hope that these towels may be offered in brighter colors--bolder ones--red, blue, green. And just incase someone might think that the solid color towels and these striped ones are made to work together, they aren't. The solid colors have a different edging--band.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GreenportShopper soft & thick
These towels in addition to being the softest & thickest towels I've ever had are the most beautiful colors. I just ordered the other colored set. I have a matching soft floor mat and I ordered that too. My favorite towels are stripes so this is perfect. Some lint collects in the dryer, but not that much. They're amazing.

Rated 2 out of 5 by rubyandcindysmom Beautiful colors, weird texture
I have mixed feelings about these towels. The colors are great, just what I wanted. The texture is not like any other towels I have. They are almost too thick but aren't as absorbent as others I have in the same price range. They are extremely heavy and wouldn't be very good for summertime since they take forever to dry. The washcloths are too thick to be practical. The whole set has more of the feeling of a bathmat rather than towels. For the price I would like more "fluffy" towels. If they didn't go so well with my bathroom color scheme, I would return them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Maggie Great BUT
These towels could only be bought in sets of one bath two hand and two wash cloths. I think they should have been sold one of each size. I had to buy two sets so i could have two bath towels now I have more than enough hand and wash clothes. The quality is great, very soft.

Rated 2 out of 5 by jpdvm Beautiful but disappointed
These were under the Christmas tree this year. I had seen them in the Freeport store this past Fall and thought they were beautiful-the colors are great, and the towels are luxuriously thick and soft. Unfortunately, they just aren't very absorbent, and when they do get wet they are very heavy. If they didn't look and feel so nice, I wouldn't still be debating whether or not to return them, they'd have already gone back.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Jlmcattle Poor quality hand towels.
I purchased three of thes sets this past summer. They have been replaced three or four times so far. The bath towels and the washcloths after many washes are OK. But the Hand Towels begin to unravel after the first few washes. Would NOT recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dennis9 Premium hotel quality
I bought these towels 4 years ago. When I got them, they felt like what you would expect at 4- and 5-star hotels. Just plain that good. And, they have so far held up nicely with barely any signs of pulling or other deterioration. None of that fraying so common with department store quality towels. I fully expect them to last a good many years without significant deterioration.
Yes, these towels are a bit pricey. But that is acceptable for what you get. When you want spa- or hotel quality, you are going to pay for it. However, given that they have held up so nicely, they are actually cheaper per year to use than the rubbish sold in department stores. And yes, you only get one bath towel--getting 2 would be unnecessarily expensive. Even for only one, it is still a good bargain--and yes, the site is honest about that you get one bath, two hand, or two washcloths. All of fine, 4- and 5-star hotel quality.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Murpwholovestees Finally stopped shedding, very very soft
I've had two sets of these bath towels/hand towels/wash clothes for about 5 years -- for two of us -- and I love them. However, since I only use them in the summer (my beach look) and rotate them with other summer-only towels, they don't get used all that much. Still, they've finally stopped shedding tons of lint in the dryer. Finally! And they're still very very soft and even more absorbent than they were a few years ago. So if you're planning on using them all the time, it should take you about 6 months or less to get rid of al the extra lint. Now, however, the selvege edge on one of the bath towels has started to tear loose from the towel -- something I've never seen before in any towel. I may ask LLBean to replace that towel, since I still love them and want to use them in the summer.
