Rated 4 out of 5áby RankinRean Buy one size larger due to shrinkage!
Based on comments in past reviews, I decided to buy misses medium instead of my usual small because of shrinkage problems. Good move. I washed it in cold water and dried on delicate setting and now it fits just like a small. I'm very happy with the fit. Neck is not tight/clingy, which is great.

Rated 2 out of 5áby GraniaAnn not 100% cotton
The body of these turtlenecks is 100% cotton. The cuffs have some spandex in them. Since I only wear all-natural fibers, I returned the turtlenecks. I also thought the sleeves were a bit shorter than they were a few years ago.

Rated 4 out of 5áby irishforever almost perfect
I have been wearing your turtlenecks for years. I'm very pleased that this year's turtlenecks have nice snug necks like they used to. For the past several years, the necks were so big that my chin would disappear when I looked down. However, now the ribbed cuffs are too big. I'm a medium, and while I don't mind the rather long length of the sleeves, the loose cuffs are very uncomfortable. Please tighten up the cuffs the way they were, and this would be the absolutely perfect turtleneck.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Glissando You Cannot Have Too Many of These!
I already own several LL Bean turtleneck sweaters. I only ordered this new one a few days ago and I must first complement your efficiency because it arrived today! I have not worn it yet but I know from past experience it will be comfy and it will be a new "go to" part of my winter wardrobe. They wash well and always look great and they wear well. The strawberry pink color is lovely.

Rated 1 out of 5áby PurpleMoon Shrinks quickly
I am very disappointed in my turtlenecks that I received a few weeks ago. The black, cranberry, and white have been through the wash cycle twice and all are about 1 size smaller. Terribly uncomfortable, needing to be pulled down constantly when layer.
I have turtlenecks from another company in an 80/20 blend that have been my staples for many years and I decided to replace their faded colors with new bright ones from LL Bean. I'm going back to the faded ones that fit and are consistent.

Rated 3 out of 5áby BoomerandCharliesMom Love them but too bad they shrunk
I was extremely pleased to find these on sale in January 2013 and quickly purchased 4 in different colours. They are VERY good quality cotton; they are soft, thick and warm. Turtlenecks are a staple in my wardrobe so they were worn and washed frequently. I'm a senior on a set budget so I'm very careful about shrinkage. When I buy something new that is 100% cotton and it is machine wash and dry, I always wash in cold water and I hang to dry for the first 5 or 6 washes - once dried I pop the item in the dryer for 10 minutes on low to soften it. After following this procedure for this set period of time, I start putting the item in the dryer on low directly from the washer. I'm not sure why this prevents shrinkage but it always works for me and I avoid the frustration and loss of hard earned money spent to end up with a too-small item from shrinkage. It did not work for these shirts. Once I started putting them in the dryer all four shrank by one size - the instructions on each tag says "machine wash in cold, tumble dry at low". The drying instructions on the tag needs to be edited to say "hang to dry". I am very disappointed because they are such good quality cotton and they are still like new but I can no longer wear them. I've checked off 'YES' that I would recommend this item to a friend because I would but with a strong warning to either buy one size up if they were planning to put them in the dryer OR hang them up to dry. If you do this, you will not be disappointed. I am so impressed with the quality of this shirt that I will be going back to the website to re-purchase the same shirts again when they are on sale next time but this time I will buy one size larger!

Rated 1 out of 5áby katimuri It is HUGE!!
The shirt size that fits me best is Petite Medium, a safe bet for all my online purchases... and now I found that LLBean is an exception to my rule. I ordered this turtleneck, and it is so big!! I wonder if they want to make believe overweight people that they are smaller than they really are. I don't want to pay shipping to return such a bad product, so I will have to wait until I have the oportunity to pass by one of their very few stores.

Rated 1 out of 5áby Slojo Loved my turtlenecks at first but...
When I received my turtlenecks, I loved them. They were a pretty color and fit well. Since I am short I was not worried about them shrinking as noted by other customers. I washed them in cold water and air dried them on the clothes line. Even so they shrunk a little each time I washed them. In time the long sleeves were 3/4 sleeves. Sadly, I just return them.
