Just wear and wash 'em...a lot.

I've read other comments about the cotton's stiffness and agree, but...

When I ordered a stack a couple of months ago (got 5 as I tend to misplace such things and was tired of searching when I wanted to be running), I was disappointed that they arrived nearly shiny, so thin and nonabsorbent. I use them a lot anyway, get 'em very sweaty, and wash them frequently. As a result, they are now softening up nicely. Perhaps the prolonged break-in time is a precursor to long fabric life?

Paisley Bandana

I have a few of these and love them. I wear them hiking and cleaning. My children also love wearing them. I have had them a few years and they are still in great shape after much wear and many washes. The material of mine is soft. I'm not sure if it has changed. Maybe check them out in a store if you can, but for the price, you can't beat them.

Good Product, bad color representation

Bought three of these bandanas - two of them were exactly the color on the screen, yet the one called Lime green was much more olive green on the screen than the bright neon green I received. My only guess is that it was possibly pushing the color spectrum/brightness control on the monitors, so they must have dimmed it down. Good product, bad color representation (in this case).

Good bandanas

I've been using these bandanas for a few months now. They really do get super soft after a few washes. Probably around 5-10 washes for me. Not sure why other reviewers have reported otherwise. Maybe I just got a good batch.

My favorite Bandana's

Made in the USA, not too over priced, good array of colors, & durable. I always bring at least two on every trip into the back country. One of the best pieces of multipurpose gear I pack.

I loved all the colors.

I would highly recommend this product for anyone who is receiving chemotherapy. I have one on my head daily. The wide choice of colors make my outfit complete.

Negative Reviews:

This bandana is not soft

I use these bandanas for hankerchiefs and was hoping that REI's product description was accurate when it mentioned that this product was "soft". It is in fact not soft. I've already put these bandanas that I bought from REI through the wash 15 times and they are still crunchy.

I bought bandanas from another site previously and got some really soft ones, but I couldn't remember what site I bought them from. I ultimately settled on buying these from REI because they said they were soft. I would not recommend that others purchase this item if they are looking for a soft bandana.

Store stock is not made in the USA!

I have purchased over 6 of these in different colors at my local REI store in Short Pump, VA. These scarfs are used as neck protection from the sun and as headbands. All of the scarfs have poor stitching along the edges, which frays in a short time. I have not found any color that was made in the USA! There were all made in China. Come on REI there are quality made bandannas made here in the USA. Try Tractor Supply and General Dollar for some quality scarfs which say Made in the USA.

Fabric weave is stiff

I've been buying these for decades. Though still 100% cotton the fabric they use currently is too stiff and will not soften. What happened; why change a consistently good product for the worse? FYI, I have a few cotton shirts made from the same type of fabric; they have not softened over time, either. This is destined for the garage rag pile. I'll look elsewhere; unfortunately it will probably be an import product that replaces what Carolina Mfg once had.

Bandana feels like a raincoat! :-(

I bought 2 of these bandannas. When I bought them, they felt stiff. I have washed them lots of times, and they are still stiff. They feel like they are made of a coated fabric suitable for raincoats. They are useless for blowing my nose!I tried to contact the manufacturer ([@]), but their "Contact Us" comment form does not work, and their web site uses an invalid expired security certificate! So I sent them a letter instead.
