Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 59 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by I don't understand the bad reviews. I almost didn't buy these towels because of some negative reviews and I am so glad I did anyway.  They are lovely and just as soft and luxurious as they seemed in the catalog. I am very happy with my purchase. March 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent towels, thick I purchased hand towels in seaweed color for my half bath. The towels are very thick, large (not skimpy) and very nice and the seaweed color is true to what you see on the screen. March 2, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great thirsty towels Awesome towels. I got the Parrot and the lavender(forgot the actual color name). They are both lovely, thick and luxurious. I will definitely order more. February 18, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Snags and not absorbent I have 4 of the beautiful green color (love the color). I've had organic towels in the past, and so I know that you have to wash them a few times before they become absorbent. That being said, I've washed these about 15 times. My kids won't use them because "they are cold"...because they don't absorb the water yet. I'd love to know any tricks so that they start actually working. Additionally, as others have said, the loops are a big problem. I keep snagging my towel on my necklaces. To make the towel look ok, you then have to clip the snag. And I'm guessing I'll have holes soon. I do not feel these were worth the high price. November 27, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Absorbent Towels These towels are very absorbent and the colors are beautiful, too. I have been ordering these towels for several years and have not found anything to compare for the price. November 27, 2013

I can't seem to tell what color the olive-y green is. Also, from the swatch I can't tell the difference between seaweed and sea.

Answer: 
At this time we do not plans to offer them as a set again. You might keep an eye out for the Gaiam Annual Sale in July, there is a possibility they could bring sets back in for that. Unfortunately I have yet to see a preview of that catalog so I am not sure what they are going to be offering this time around.
