Women's Chenille Robe
Warm and Cozy
I searched for quite a while for this robe. I wanted a robe that was feminine, zippered, soft, and warm. They are hard to come by but this one was more than I expected. It is a beautiful color and feels wonderful against my skin. It does shed initially so I washed it and then placed it in the dryer on a low setting. It took 4 cycles to dry the robe but I did not have a problem with fuzz after that. After each cycle I cleaned the dryer vent which was loaded with chenille fuzz and ran the cycle again. The trim and color at the top of the robe places the warmth where it matters, on the chest and the neck. This robe was well-worth the price.

Classic chenille - warm and fuzzy
I have not been able to find a chenille robe that met my needs until now. This robe is warm, fuzzy, and stylish. The size and length are perfect on my (5'2") and I love the detailing. Some people have mentioned that it sheds but that is chenille. In my opinion that is expected. I look forward to many years of happy comfort and it came just in time for a long cold spell.

Sheds and leaves trails
This robe is very soft and cozy, however, it sheds like a Collie! Every where I go in the house, there are trails left behind, on laundry, on the couch, on the bed, anything I brush up against has teal lint on it. Everything it touches needs vacuuming. I washed and dryed it thinking that it would help. I had to clean the dryer lint screen three times as it was caked full. It did not help much as the robe still sheds.

The robe sheds worse than my dog.
The color, size and comfort of the robe are perfect according to my wife who wears it. After five washings (separately) the robe STILL continues to shed. Before the first washing the robe left its mark on everything it came into contact with.

Warm, lightweight, cozy
There is nothing like chenille. I actually bought this for my 15-year-old cat. She has always loved sitting on my lap when I'm wearing a chenille robe. (She's not a chummy cat.) But I had forgotten how soft and warm chenille is. This robe is beautiful. I'm 5'5" and 110 lbs., and the small fits beautifully. The color is outstanding. As long as you know that you must wash and dry this quite a few times before wearing, you will be happy. After the washings and dryings, I put it in the dryer for several hours on air dry, and got even more of the loose chenille off. This is just something you must do with chenille, and it is so worth it. Almost no fuzz boogers left. I am very happy with this robe.

Mom loved this item!
I purchased this item as a Christmas gift for my mother. She loves chenille and this robe was a very similar color to one her mom wore for years. After wearing the robe several times, she stated that it was the softest and most comfortable thing she'd worn in years and she was thoroughly enjoying it. Vermont Country Store is the perfect place to look for classic, and often hard to find items and I'll definitely be shopping from them again!

I have been looking for a chenille robe for a few years. The one I had and loved was in a sad state, but I couldn't give it up until I found a replacement. I have seen a few in stores, but the quality was lacking and they were short for me even though I'm only 5'4". Well, when I saw this one, I had to take the chance that it might be good enough. Well, not only is it that, but it's much nicer, heavier, better made and cuter than my old one was when it was new! I'm thrilled with it.

This robe is PERFECT!
It's been next to impossible to find a chenille front-zip robe that had all the attributes I wanted ... at the quality I wanted. I have quite literally been looking for years, and had to settle for a terry wrap in the meantime. I hate wraps, they're a pain in the neck! So the instant I saw this one, I ordered it. It came in the mail yesterday and it meets and EXCEEDS my expectations! So much so, that I just ordered a second one so that, in a few years, when this one begins to show signs of wear, I'll be ready with my new one and won't have to go searching again. Thank you Vermont Country Store!
