I love these towels
PostedJanuary 19, 2014
I bought several sets of these towels in the color "plume" a couple of years ago. They are luxuriously thick and, despite washing them in warmer water than recommended on the label, they have maintained their deep color beautifully. One of the bath towels has a side that has raveled slightly, but the towel is still useable. I would highly recommend these towels, and I am sure I will continue to use them for a long time.

My new favorite sweater
PostedJanuary 18, 2014
I love this sweater! It runs large, though. I originally ordered a large, which is what I normally wear, but it was way too big. I replaced it with a medium and am completely satisfied. Look closely at the picture before choosing your size, as I think it shows the fit well... The sleeves are quite long (which I appreciate, as I have long arms!), but the wrist is narrow enough that the sleeves wrinkle (in a stylish way) rather than hanging over my hands. The fabric drapes beautifully and the knit is a nice medium weight. I would order another sweater in cobalt or merlot if either color were in stock in my size.

Heavy, plush, beautiful color!
PostedNovember 15, 2011
I love these towels. They are thick and heavy. I bought several sets in the Plume color, and the color has stayed bright through several washings. As with all high-quality towels, I've had to wash them several times to remove loose fibers and make them more absorbent. I accidentally washed a set in hot water but they came out just as beautiful as the sets where I followed the care label instructions and washed them in cold water. I wish Gaiam had matching bath rugs available!

I really like these sheets
PostedNovember 15, 2011
I have only owned these sheets for a few weeks, and have only washed them a few times, but so far, I love them. They are silky-soft and they come out of the dryer ready to be put on the bed - no need for ironing.

These run small.
PostedJanuary 11, 2011
The photo and description of these panties is a little deceptive. The rise does not hit my belly button - instead, they sit about 2" below it. I would consider these to be hipsters, not briefs. Also, they run small. I bought the same size I've purchased in other good-quality panties, but they seem a bit tight. Otherwise, the quality seems good and they are color-fast.

Great jammies!
PostedJanuary 11, 2011
I love these jammies. The fabric is a medium-weight cotton jersey and they are very soft. I am 5'-6" tall and have long arms and legs. I bought these in a medium and the sleeves and pant legs are just right for me. I only have two complaints about them. First, there are only three buttons on the top, so the front gaps open. Second, the plackets behind the buttons and button holes are not stitched down, so they bunch up and curl in on themselves. I plan to sew mine down myself but I shouldn't have to do that. All in all, I liked the first pair I ordered so much that I bought a second pair.

I've washed mine two or three times on the hand wash cycle in my washer, and then laid it flat to dry. It comes out fine.

Try now. All sizes are in stock right now. I ordered a large originally but returned it for a medium. I typically wear large. Just wanted to give you a heads-up.

Not yet, but I will try washing it using the hand wash cycle on my washer, and I'll let you know how it works out.  I typically wash items like this on the hand wash cycle.

Are these towels made in America, with American cotton?

The label indicates that they are made in India, but I don't know where the organic cotton is from.

Are these pajamas color-fast? Can I wash them with other colored clothing?

Yes. I have washed them in warm water with white items and have had no problems.
