Shawl Collar Chenille Robe
Have been looking for a Chenille robe that buttoned up and had sleeves that were cuffed. Sleeves stay up when rolled one turn. Washed as was recommended and it barely shed. Color is lovely. No fading in the wash. Looks great and is warm. Worth every penny. Wish I could buy another in a different color. Soft blue, teal, or light burgundy would be nice. Just perfect.

Comfy and Cozy
I bought this for my mother for Christmas. It is the perfect chenille robe, just like they made in the "old days". She is 85 and absolutely loves it. She likes that it buttons all the way in front, and/or ties if she just wants. The size tended to run a bit small for her, and I had to return it for the larger size. The customer service was fast and easy. Now, I need one!

Best Robe Ever Owned
This is the best robe I have ever owned. It is warm without the bulk and is put together very well. The color and style are perfect especially both buttons and tie. I like the contrast of the collar, cuffs and tie. I already have recommended this to some of my family and friends.

Old time comfort
This robe is cozy , nice to get out of the bath and curl up in to watch TV or read my book . I would prefer larger buttons but having a way to close the robe other than just the tie is handy

Finally found a good chenille robe!
I have been looking for quite awhile for a chenille robe for my 84- year old mother. She had a very worn out one that she refused to give up until she could find another one. She also only wanted the button-up type as it is too difficult to step into a zippered one. I bought her this one and she says she loves it. The color is great but it would be nice to have other choices. This is a good weight for in between a light robe for summer and a fleece robe for winter.

Better than what i expected. Size was exactly right. Love the purple! (my husband teases me about looking like a big purple grape) I enjoy having the button becasue I am not much of a belt person. I looked all over for a cheniele robe and couldn't find one anywhere until I looked at the Vermont Store. I know I will be enjoying it for many,many years.

I bought this in the purple for my wife and she loves it. Substantial quality, very well made. She washed it and there was considerable lint in the filter, but that certainly does not diminish the comfort nor the quality. Excellent purchase!

My wonderful robe (and very first dealings with the Vermont Country Store) is everything I expect from a company which guarantees their products so well.
I had searched for a chenille robe of high quality and by that I mean one, which does not shed profusely and endlessly and does not leave lint on my white denim furniture when I wear it in the evening curled up on the sofa.
I had initiated a "Live-Help" session in order to hear a bit more about the item I was about to select and I was advised to wash and dry the robe prior to wearing it and that after 2 washings the chenille would have very little tendency to shed at all.
I washed my new robe once on the delicate cycle of my washing machine and dried it thoroughly on the permanent cycle of the dryer and it came out just beautifully! Practically no lint at all from the washing and the average amount from the time in the dryer.
This is truly the sign of quality chenille, not to be confused with the cheap imitations.
The robe is wonderfully warm and very cozy, yet very light-weight and soft and the fiber content of 75% cotton and 25% polyester is just the right choice, rendering it easy to care for and giving it a beautiful drape.
I very much appreciate the buttons, all the way down the front, keeping the robe from "gaping" which so often happens when you just have an inner tie and a belt to close a robe with and the nicely deep side pockets are also a great feature.
The length is perfect; I need to be fast, up and down stairs with 2 very active Golden Retrievers and I cannot be tripping over my robe with the two in tow.
Thank you Vermont Country Store for thoughtful customer service and a robe which I know I will enjoy for quite a long time!
