Premium Cotton Towels, Stripe is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 52.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Facecloths sub-par My wife purchased the sand dollar stripped towels some time ago. While the bath and hand towels are the usual Bean quality, the facecloths are not good at all. They are thin and have begun to shrivel in the dryer. The facecloths have also begun to discolor like they were used to apply furniture polish or paint stripper. At first I thought the sand color was bleeding into the other stripes but the bath and hand towels seem to be fine in the same wash loads. Avoid the sand dollar facecloths if possible.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Two thumbs up I’d had my eye on these for a long time. I tried several other brands, with mixed success. When I’d finally learned the lesson that especially in bath and bedding supplies, you get what you pay for, I decided to try these. I ordered the sand dollar color in the set, adding one more bath towel. They go beautifully with my grey/aqua glass tiles. Now, I’m not as sold on towels being soft—I actually like a rough towel, if it absorbs better. These are mostly soft, with a thick pile. They absorb VERY well. You know, not like “I can move the water around on my skin with this towel” but actually absorb. So that means the looping was done with quality in mind. For their thickness, they dry quickly. At least in Colorado. They are beautiful and of a generous size. They shed little, if any, in the dryer. I’m pretty excited about them, and I’m kinda picky. I highly recommend!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not absorbent The blue striped hand towels are pretty colors and give me the change I wanted from only solid color towels, but these towels do not dry my hands. There is just no absorbancy. I have washed the towel three times so far with no improvement (and I never use fabric softener in either wash or dry.) While this is a nice thick soft towel, I hate it because it doesn't dry my hands or face.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A little disappointed I love the towels but really wish the set came with 2 bath towels. I don't understand why it doesn't as there are 2 face cloths and 2 hand towels in the set? It would be nice if you had the option to buy just a bath towel instead of the whole set.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Towels are nice but all the edges fray I bought these towels in June. They are thick and nice. However, all of the edges fray on the bath towels. I returned a few of the them because the edges were falling apart. All of the other ones have now done the same. Too expensive to fall apart in less than 6 months. The hand towels and face towels are fine, but the bath towels are falling apart....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thick Cotton Bath Sheet These bath sheets are very thick and luxurious, even after washing once so far. They are wider than most I have found but about 6 inches shorter than I prefer. I personally prefer a longer versus wider towel because when I bend over to dry my feet they just aren't quite long enough, and I'm only 5'5". I don't know that everyone wants a bath sheet wrapped completely around them while bending down to your toes so this may not be an issue for most! :-) I just wish they used the 6" wider on the length rather than the width. The wider width also makes them harder to tri-fold like I like to do. They would look too fat if I folded them so the pattern displayed evenly! That probably only affects those with a towel fetish!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not LLB usual quality These towels had loops of thread pulling out after only a couple of days' use. They were nice and fluffy, but not the same fabric as the very durable solid towels, and nowhere near L.L.Bean's ordinary excellent quality. They're going back.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Thickness to the point of carpet-like Excessive thickness with a feel of using a piece of carpeting! Heavy. Enormously lint-prone upon initial washing to the point of almost clogging the dryer's filter screen, likely will continue, but diminish. Softness to the skin - acceptable but certainly not exceptional. Drying ability would earn the same descriptive. Overall performance in context of price - not a good value. "Deluxe" it is not, other than total thickness
