Rated 5 out of 5 by MaineIsland These are terrific towels!
I bought a set of white for each little granddaughter and had their name monogrammed on each piece (Bean's was great, they even monogrammed each set in the thread color I wanted)...the sets not only looked fabulous when I got them, they are a great towel for a great price. I wish they had pink but maybe someday. In any case, these are really a good deal and I intend to buy more!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Edgewoodshopper Light weight of sure.
These are great towels and offer you a great value. Yes they are light weight and that is the only thing to be of concern. If you like heavy terry towels stay away from these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Aluap Functional, lovely, and ahead of the curve
When I spotted these towels in the Bean catalog, I had just returned from a trip to Turkey where I learned that Turkish towels aren't necessarily big and fluffy the way we think of them. I was ready for a different sort of towel, and I needed to replace my guest bathroom towels.
I ordered these in the flint blue color which was just the shade I was looking for.
They're great to use, nice looking in an appealingly utilitarian way, and when I washed them before use I found out that they line-dry perfectly and quickly! You know how some environmentally conscious people have been line-drying towels for years and ignoring the rough, matted results? With these towels you can be environmentally conscious, save energy and $ by not using your dryer, and have soft, good looking towels anyway. Win/win!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Danale Hair towels please!
Please LL Bean make this towel in a 'hair towel' size too. 24 x 44 or maybe 24 x 45 inches!
I absolutely love these towels as the absorb everything fast and are lightweight. I just need a large enough towel for hands and hair and you're not making that size yet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by OnlineTchr Beautiful but shrink
I bought these in the color flint blue. They are beautiful towels but they do shrink quite a bit. The difference between one that had been washed and dried a few times and a brand new one was about 4" in length (bath towel). Because of the shrinkage, they also get a little "rough" feeling over time as the weave tightens up. I have found that adding some white vinegar to the final rinse helps soften them as it also removes any residual detergent. You might avoid some shrinkage if you do not let them completely dry in the drier, but that's a little too much maintenance for a bath town (in my opinion). The colors are very nice. I saw them at Bean's Home store in Freeport, and they are gorgeous.

Rated 5 out of 5 by feta Best towels ever!
I always thought bath towels had to be thick to be absorbent, but not the case with these towels. They soak up the water, but are not bulky in any way. They wash great - no lint or pilling. After two days of using them, I got back online and ordered more - I'm replacing all my bath towels with these!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Frangipani14 Quick drying and soft
Some of our other towels do not dry very well and we have had trouble with mildew. These towels are great--quick drying and soft. No mildew! They are larger than many bath towels too (not what I was looking for but good) and come in nice colors (except the coral, which I returned). We bought more of these towels for our sailboat because of their quick-dry qualities. They seem to be working well but we haven't tested them yet while cruising in humid areas.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 2dogs2cats3fish So Nice
We're updating our towels at home and I've been buying and trying a few at a time from different retailers. This cotton textured towel from Bean beat a much pricier brand by leaps and bounds! So soft, even after laundering without fabric softener. Love the muted color and the way the edges are finished. I plan on buying more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LoveMyLabradors Happy So Far
Just took my first shower with these towels, and I am happy with them so far. I wear a charm bracelet 24/7, and it was constantly catching on my fluffy towels. I've been looking for something more flat that won't constantly be getting pulls. These towels seem to work great. Yes, they are thin, but I disagree with people who said they weren't soft. I think they feel great and dry well. I was surprised at how plain they look without that bit of decoration that most towels have. I'm sure I'll get used to it but I'm giving 4 stars because they do look a bit like a big dish towel. Also love the light green color. We also have little ventilation in our bathroom, so I'm looking forward to the quick dry between uses that other people noted. Hubby hasn't tried them yet, but he'll be happy that I'm not returning yet another set of towels!

Rated 4 out of 5 by TexasCentered Especially nice with monogramming
These towels are what I expected, light and absorbent. I prefer that over the heavy plush ones and the monogramming looks sharp. I will probably get more. Colors are sort of faded looking but that can be expected given they match the pictures on the website.
