Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great towels, but loops are in wrong place I like the towels a lot and recommend them with one quibble. There is a loop sewn onto the towel (good!), but it is in the wrong place. If I use the loop to hang up the towel, the towel brushes the floor. For the record, my hooks are close to the top of the bathroom door as they are the over-the-door type. If the loop had been sewn in the middle of the towel's edge, the towel would have been a complete success. I would still have bought the towels, as they meet every other criteria--quick drying, light-weight, wash well, and are the right size. Just please fix the placement of the loop before I buy any more of them!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality I know textiles. These towels are of excellent quality and are colorfast. Bought four bath towels 3 or 4 years ago and they are washed and dried about twice a week. After all this time NO PUCKER, NO SHRINKAGE whatsoever. If you want a fluffy towel this is not for you but if you want a very densely woven, quick drying towel that folds and stacks beautifully in your linen closet this towel is for you. What a space saver. My husband loves these towels too. He says they are “sensible and efficient”. I’m ordering more and I am hoping they are still made with the hanging loop like my first purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The towels that I‘ve been looking for for years! If you want thick, plush towels that take forever to dry on the rack and waste energy in the dryer, look elsewhere. But if you want a towel with a new look that dries quickly and has way enough absorbency to dry you well (how wet can you be?) you‘ve found it. They look smooth and new after multiple washings hanging on a hook or bar. They also take up far less space in the closet. And the sizes of the bath towels is delightfully generous. Plus, the tight weave of the nubby terry never snags. I have sets of the gray and the white and they look sharp in my little bathroom, as noted by guests. Please keep selling these, LL Bean!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice towel!! Got these in the green colour. These towels are not the fluffy type but work really well. Washed up nicely, little lint, absorbent even if fairly thin. The bath towel is bigger than most bath towels and gives good 'wrap around me" coverage and feels soft on the skin. The quality is totally there. If you like towels that are puffy and fluffy this one is not for you. But if you like ones that work and dry rather fast after you hang them up... go for this one. Bonus on the organic cotton... love these towels! Richer colours might be nice but for my taste totally fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best towels ever - NO shedding, soft, absorbent I wanted a towel that does not shed, is soft, absorbent, and dries quickly. These are perfect. I got the oversized towels, which are great for a big or tall person. Most towels available elsewhere shed lint like crazy - but not these. They're not terrycloth, they have closed looped cotton on both sides, so there's no lint in my dryer or on me after drying off. I've had them now for a month and I can't say enough good things about them. Also thanks to Ron for looking up the number on my lost giftcard and crediting the amount to my purchase. L.L. Bean's customer service is as awesome as ever! And that's why I've been a repeat customer for more than 40 years!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick Drying AND Organic! We thought we wanted fluffy, spa-like towels (that we bought from a competitor); turns out they never dried completely in our bathroom, so they always smelled after a few days. When I found this towel at LLBean, I bought several because reviewers said they dried fast--and they were so right! (Thank you, reviewers!) And the fact that they're organic makes me really happy! We bought our first set in white and now I've come back to grab another set in grey. And I've recommended these to several friends. Thank you, LLBean, for making such a great towel. Please don't ever run out of these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The bomb! These towels are the bomb! The weight, texture, and absorbency are excellent. I have purchased I don't know how many towels that disappoint because they are thick and fluffy, but they don't dry your skin. Both my husband and I hate that. So, for our purposes, these are just what we wanted, like the old towels we have and still use. I don't know why so many manufacturers started producing fluffy, non-absorbent towels. They make look pretty on the towel rack, but that's it. Having said that, I also like the interesting birdseye texture on these towels. I purchased the hand towels to try them out, but now I will go back for the bath towels. All around, a great purchase for us.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from European like towels When traveling in Italy and England I found the towels at the air bnb’s were similar to these in texture. They are lightweight but “thirsty” because most Europeans either dry their wash outside or have those combo washer dryers. The combos don’t act like a dryer that tosses warmed air....it extracts moisture. If you try to dry a plush towel it would take days! So, this type of towel is important. I returned to the States I searched everywhere for textured, no lint, lightweight towels....impossible to find. ...Except LL Bean!! I was thrilled ordered 4 sets in green. The bath towel is very large making the need for a bath sheet unnecessary. I LOVE THESE TOWELS. PLEASE MAKE MORE COLORS!
