I have purchased my robe in grey. It is nice, super soft, thick and "substantial", not flimsy at all. I wear it quite a bit, actually - starting first thing in the morning when I let the dogs out in the yard. I must say, this being mid-March here in Canada, it's rather cold but thanks to this robe, I'm perfectly comfortable stepping outside in sub-zero temperatures. I have washed and dried this robe twice, on "warm", and nothing bad happened to it - no loose seams, no threads coming out, nothing came apart, just a plushy soft, warm and comfy robe! And this being bamboo fiber, I only expect it to get softer over time (as with all my other bamboo articles of clothing, or towels). Yes, perhaps it does pull easily but it is not as bad as one review stated. You just need to be careful with rings and other jewelry that might snug the threads, that's all. I have 3 dogs and a cat, and none of them pulled any threads out yet. All in all, I like my new robe a lot and would buy it again.
