Details

Yes a turtleneck is often the foundation layer of a cool weather outfit - but this one has more than enough elegance to go it alone. A beautifully crafted sweater done in a plush and stretchy rib that skims curves for a smooth fit alone or layered under a jacket or blazer. You'll fall in love with its coziness and versatility.

  • 100% organic Tanguis cotton
  • Machine wash
  • 25.5-inch length (size Medium)
  • Gently shaped fit
  • Fairly made in Lima, Peru
Fair Indigo Premium Materials
While we select Peruvian Pima cotton for most of our garments, the ideal cotton for sweaters is Pima’s close cousin – Tanguis. Because sweaters employ a looser and different type of knit than fabric garments, the slightly thicker fibers of Tanguis cotton are ideal for fashioning incredibly soft, strong, and long-lasting sweaters.
 
How does it do good?
Our non-GMO organic cotton is grown on a small family-owned farm in the climactically ideal Ica region of Peru. The dyes are Oeko-tex certified - gentle on the earth, farmers, garment workers, and you. The garments are meticulously knit in a small fair trade workshop where employees are paid fairly and treated, like family, with dignity and respect.

A great turtleneck
I purchased this turtleneck in four colors, and I really like all of them. The fabric is soft and comfortable, and the sleeves are long enough. I have washed each of them several times, and they wash beautifully.

Promising, but needs changes
This sweater has possibilities, but also problems. First, they were out of many colors, even though it was a new item. I got the caramel, because they didn't have the color I wanted in my size. It was more of a lighter brown, and not a good color. Also found it too long, & not good for wearing out over pants or skirt. Would have been great if it was a little thicker. am sending it back.

good but with drawbacks
Love the feel and color of this turtleneck. I loved the hugging fit to it. However, after the first wear, it stretched out a lot. Almost like any elastic in it was gone after the first time wearing it.

Go-to Turtleneck!
This is the softest and most beautifully made t-neck. I was ordering L for tees and henleys, but had to order a M to get this t-neck and I'm glad I did. It is stretchy, fits great, and holds it shape. The neck is not choking. It is so comfy. There is good length in the sleeves and they can be folded up attractively. Some love went into this sweater.

Excellent product.
I bought this sweater in black in December 2015. It is now my go-to turtleneck. It is soft, well-made and not bulky so I can wear it under jackets. I decided to buy two more in other colors!
