Bought 3 turtlenecks and all have shrunk beyond ever wearing. I can use them for rags. I washed them in warm water and dried on low heat like I do for my knit tops. These are so snug and short (lengthwise and sleeve length). I have bought other brands of turtlenecks and they are just fine. I have been pleased with other LL Bean products but NOT the turtlenecks. I would return them for new ones but what's the purpose because the new ones would only shrink!

Rated 2 out of 5 by kafofco Waht happened to the sizes?
I have LL Bean turtlenecks that were purchased more than 10 years ago. I have finally worn them out.
I'm a loyal customer of 40 years.
In trying to purchase new ones I find there is no longer the option of ordering these in Tall.
I ordered a size bigger than my originals and they are way too short and the sleeves are even shorter.
I have returned for an even bigger size but am very unhappy.
I have my doubts that they will fit properly
Many of us have longer torsos and arms and regular does not fit.
Other companies offer Tall and I may need to switch brands.

Rated 3 out of 5 by AnnfromMass Too short
This turtleneck isn't quite up to par. The sleeves and body are too short - the shirt doesn't stay tucked in. The neck is rather large. The fabric is a good weight. Cancelled my back orders on this one.

I do like these turtlenecks, but they have things wrong with them. I had shrinking issues just like other reviewers. My arms are long anyway, so they ended up about 2 inches short. I wish the neck length was longer and the width was narrower. The turtleneck doesn't have quite enough fabric to fold over as I would like. Otherwise, the fabric is soft and durable and it tucks in well. I also enjoy the colors available.

I loved these turtlenecks until they were washed. They shrunk in the length and also the sleeves. Very disappointed. What happened to using a blend in the fabric?

Rated 1 out of 5 by qualitythinker shrinkage no exaggeration
Bought three of these hoping that the poor reviews were not accurate, but after only one careful washing/drying, (cool water, low heat), they shrunk at least 2". Dissappointed in LL Bean's slip in quality.

This is a very comfortable turtleneck that also looks nice. The neck itself stays up but isn't uncomfortably tight. The small and medium both fit fine, but I prefer the medium for fear of shrinkage. The light apricot color is a slightly peachy pink that looks better than it sounds. It's a great wardrobe staple.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Kathy79707 Sleeves too short
This is a common problem with this turtleneck. After a couple of washings (cold water, low dry) the sleeves shrink up a couple of inches. I am constantly pulling them down with my fingers, hoping they will stay -- but they don't. I love the feel and otherwise the fit is great, but darn it. I want longer sleeves. I keep buying them every couple of years but it always the same.

With the first wash the shrinking wasn't too bad and the shirt fit fine. With subsequent washes it's now a kid's size turtleneck. Everything is too short: arms, length. Disappointed with the quality of this shirt.
