John Lewis Luxury Cotton Towels
beware. The label on these towels states wash at 40 degrees NOT 60 degrees as on website, hence presumably the reason for a previous reviewer's washing problem. John Lewis, please correct.

Shrinking / Fading Towles
I bought these towels specifically because the bath towel was extra long. I washed two of the bath towels and two hand towels before use; they were washed at 50C (i.e. lower than recommended) and the bath towel shrank to the same size as my usual towels I think the hand towel shrank as well but I only had two so nothing to compare with after. All four changed colour to a few shades paler. I still have two unwashed bath towels which I shall be returning. I know they were cheap but I didn't expect this from John Lewis.

Excellent value for money
I wanted some hand towels, rather than whole sets, for the downstairs loo and bathroom hand basin. These fitted the bill perfectly.
I gave them a wash before using as I always do with towels. They were dried outside and came up beautifully soft and fluffy and were very absorbent straight away.
I will buy towels from this range again when I just want a plain colour.

Purchased these to replace old ratty ones that were headed for the bin. Very pleased with the size and fluff of them. I had to wash them a couple of times to get rid of the excess fibers, but not really an issue as that's pretty normal.
I am slightly disappointed in the Cassis color as appeared much richer on the website than in reality.
Overall, I'm satisfied with them as they are warm and cosy!

Value for money
I bought bath, hand & guest towels in Aqua to use alongside towels bought from the same range last year. If there have been any quality problems, then I think these must have been resolved. The towels are soft, absorbent and a lovely colour. Very pleased with this purchase.

Not John Lewis usual standard
I bought 2 bath towels as they felt so lush and warm, i also loved the colours but was very disappointed with purchase. The towels don't absorb any water nor does it dry a person when using it ( which is the sole purpose of it#. I actually had to use another towel to dry myself after and this towel was soaking wet. Wasteful purchase.This is the first time I am disappointed with a JL product :#

Love these towels
These towels are great value for money. They are soft thick and
absorbent,and a good size. I washed and tumble dried them before use, a lot of fluff came off in the tumble drier so I think I will wash them separately for a few washes.
I wish I'd bought more, hopefully they will be available again in the next clearance.
