Stringy after pre-use wash, thin and non-absorbent.
What has happened to Sheridan quality? - grew up knowing the brand to be superior and recently bought towels, hand towels, etc for three bathrooms and wasted my money. Not fit to even use for dog towels/rags. Never again.
Purchased in September 2020 at $205.00.
Horrendous towels, waste of money.
These towels do not dry you and they leave fluff all over your body, not to mention attracting all the other fluff in the household to then also deposit onto your wet body. They are not quick drying and are a giant waste of money.
If only I ready these reviews before purchasing! Terrible quality towels.
Poor quality Ryan style won’t stop shedding
Replaced 20yo Sheridan with Sheridan Ryan. 14 months since and still green fluff EVERYWHERE. On my skin, eyelashes, exhaust, walls, throughout the house. It’s terrible quality. Faded. Extremely Disappointed Sheridan.
Bought 2 grey hand towels, 1 bath mat and 1 bathrobe and within a few weeks all had orange spots. Customer service was slow & unhelpful. I sent items for quality assessment and after 7 weeks received notification saying there was nothing they could do as there was evidence of peroxide on items i.e. from soaps or washing detergents. I explained none of my other towels had these problems and they finally sent a new batch as a "gesture of goodwill". Guess what, the same thing happened with the new batch so i requested a refund and have been advised i have to go through the quality assessment again. These towels are poor quality and not worth the money.
Purchased in October 2019 for A$115.00.
Sheridan ultra lite towels
Have washed Sheridan Navy blue ultra lite towels five times and still fluff everywhere in bathroom with a fine coating of navy blue over every surface. Have to vacuum bathroom every day and wipe down all surfaces. Have to clean out washing machine after every wash as other washing comes out with navy blue fluff all over them. They do not absorb water so are wet and cold when used after shower, need to use an old towel to finish drying as they do nothing towards drying you .
I purchased Forrest Green quick dry bath sheets, bathmat, hand towels and face cloths from Myer. Followed pre-wash instructions to the letter (I don't have a clothes dryer), and had to vacuum the bathroom and myself after using the towels. Washed them twice more and still shedding everywhere so wrote to Sheridan asking for a solution to stop the shedding only to be told they "were sorry" but that any requests for refunds etc. should be addressed to the place I purchased them. I replied reminding them that I had asked for a solution to the p...roblem, not a refund or exchange, as I loved the colour of the towels, and expressed my dismay at their lack of interest in customer satisfaction. Having washed the towels 3 more times and still experiencing shedding they are being returned to Myer today. I wish I had read these reviews prior to purchasing. Used to love and value Sheridan products but not any more.

Sheridan Ultra-Light Luxury Towel Range
Very soft towels and does not have other smell
Clean when it gets to me and was delivered very quickly
washed it a few times and still very soft but it is not as soft as other luxury hotel brand
I love my Sheridan "Ryan" towels
I purchased the Ryan bathsheets 3 weeks ago. As I do with all new bath towels, I washed them and put them through a dryer twice before using. A huge amount of fluff collected in the dryer both times (see photo) but I have zero fluff on me when I use them after a shower. They are very absorbent and feel luxurious. So, if you are prepared to do some prep work they will be lovely towels. If you don't have access to a dryer then maybe they're not the right towel for you.
Purchased in February 2019.
Same - continuous fluff..
I agree -we also bought the navy bath sheets - lovely and soft, very luxurious - but still after a year, we have little bits of blue fluff on our bodies after drying and blue fluff drops into the bath tub below where we hang our towels - quite annoying as I expected better from Sheridan. Now the question I have is - should I go ahead and buy sets for my grown up children as Christmas presents only to have them having to deal with the continuous fluff?? Mmmm ... or - maybe the fluff issue is why these towels can often be bought at 40-50% off RRP ...???
Do these Towels ever stop loosing Fluff?
I am a massive fan of all things Sheridan.... In fact my daughter has just put Sheridan Sesame Street doona cover that I bought for her room 38 years ago on her youngest sons bed so I am quite objective. But OMG these Towels that I purchased over 12 months ago just won't stop shedding. They are navy colour and I have a cream coloured bathroom so like many reviews on these Towels it is just a pain in the proverbial. The only reason I am reviewing them is I was researching Towels that don't shed forever and the reviews came at the top of the sear...ch. I thought constant shedding was a "cheap" towel problem so I did not expect this from an Expensive Sheridan towel. Sadly it has also happened to some very expensive Egyptian cotton Towels so it would appear that like a lot of things being produced in cheap labour countries we are still paying top dollar for low quality products.
EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED FLUFF ALL OVER US AND OUR BATHROOM
I have always used Sheridan Sheets and Towels. I bought 8 of their Luxury Egyptian Cotton Bath Towels in 4 shades of blue ranging from a very dark blue to a very light blue. They have been washed 4 times now following the instructions to wash them at 40 degrees. The amount of fluff that comes off all the shades of blue is unbelievable. There is fluff stuck all over our bodies and in places that shouldn't have fluff in them !!! The bathroom is covered in fluff as well. I wish I had read the reviews before purchasing them but I have always...bought Sheridan and they have been great. I have tried using white vinegar in the rinse and also putting them in the tumble dryer to finished them off. But nothing has worked. I am so fed up that I am seriously considering cutting them up for rags. Needless to say I will never purchase Sheridan Towels again. This episode has turned me right off. Also it is not as if they are cheap to buy.
I wish I read the reviews before I bought my new towels,I always thought it was a great brand as had sheets before.I,just have fluff fluff & more fluff.I phoned up customer they told me I was washing them wrong, I ask you how can you was a towel wrong??I am over it washing machine full of fluff ,carpets have fluff don’t get me started with the white barthroom fluff fluff,did I tell you they are navy blue.Customer service were helpful by saying if I have a receipt can take them back to Myers as they have people there to have a look at the towel...s to see the problem I am having ,they have emailed me a form & Sheredian will pay for postage to send them back to quality control dept. But the answer will be my fault washed them wrong.Disappointed customer.
Awful towels for pilling
Awful beach towels why did I not learn from previous Sheridan experience. Fluff all over towels, house after 2 washes in cold water one with vinegar. Their flannelette sheets & cotton blankets just the same nightmare wash after wash. Never again. Why don't they fix this problem
Terrible fluff all over the bathroom and me!
I bought two sets of the Austyn towels in grey for our two new bathrooms. Despite having washed them five times to get rid of the fluff, the fluff persists. I even tried drying them in the dryer.
I have now gone to the additional expense of buying different ( not Sheridan) towels
I recently purchased 2 sets of Sheridan towels for my newly renovated en-suite. I have used them before with no problems. Since starting to use them I have done nothing but clean the bathroom because of all the fluff that has come off them. Have washed them a couple of times and it is definitely not getting better. Very very disappointed. They certainly are not cheap and I expect more when paying that sort of money for towels.
Questions & Answers
Has anyone got problems with the Egyptian towels from Sheridan. So disappointed . I have not got high rings only flat ones and yet i constantly keep getting threads. The lady in the shop cut some threads and blamed people looking at them in the shop with high rings on. This could not always be the case as neither i or my husband have high rings. Going to ring the company as they were very expensive, They have got good absorption and nice and soft. Please let me know if you have problems. 1 grey and 1 white. The floor mat does not do it. Thank you Margaret.
Recently bought a set of these, just prior to Christmas for house guests (so not used v often) the bath mat is starting to discolour? It is a beautiful dark grey but tan/orange marks are starting to appear on it. At first we thought it looked like bleach had been spilled on it, but we don’t use bleach at all. Anybody had similar experience with this mystery? Very disappointing for a product less than a month old
what washing detergent can i use for my ultra-light sheriden towls?
Hi, I just use OMO , in cold water on gentle wash, seems okay,dry in windy shade or tumble dryer instructions were / are on attached cardboard label that was or is on new towel.
I'm still very happy with my purchases, have now bought (3) at 2 different times from 2 different stores plus face washers & hand towels
I was using a no frills brand name liquid detergent (possibly from Woolworths) as every other well known brand had optical brighteners etc. In the end it didn't make a difference but the other day I had washed with Cold Power and hung them outdoors in full sun and they seemed much more absorbent - i was surprised!
