warm but leaky
on January 6, 2006
I received this robe as a gift and had high hopes for it. Out of the box, it was warm and cushy on. It's kind of like wearing a lightweight sleeping bag. The sleeves are full-length to the wrist, and they roll up easily and stay put when I'm cooking or otherwise using my hands a lot. The robe is full-length to the ankle. My only gripe is that the robe leaks feathers, at the seams and right through the 300-threads-per-inch fabric. Our sofa and rugs are now coated with a light dusting of feathers, presumably hypoallergenic but still annoying. The feathers poking through on the inside of the robe itch my skin. If this robe had higher-thread-count fabric, it'd be perfect, but unfortunately I can give it only 3 stars. FYI, the instructions say dry cleaning is recommended though machine washing twice a year is okay (?).
