I am sad to leave a bad rating about bamboo cloth products because I love my sheets and towels. However, even though this bathrobe is soft, heavy, and warm, it unravels almost as easily as looking at it!! You can't wash it because it unravels (and I have a front-loading machine); you can't wear it because if you brush up against anything it unravels; and unless you carry scissors in the pocket with you, it always looks like it was involved in a catfight!! I bought one for my son last Christmas, waited for what looked to be a different supplier and ordered another 2, thinking the first was a fluke, and all 3 look like rags. Until they make them like the sheets, I'd pass on this.
