Rated 5 out of 5 by wantagoodfit comfy, soft, good fit
My Bean's mock is all I expected and more. The fabric is soft, length of arms is perfect and the neck is not too tight. It washes like a dream and is well made.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Yeti Nice Top but Sleeves Really Shrink
I bought several of these tops over a year's time. The fabric is very nice. Soft and just the right thickness. The drape and construction is very good. The colors are beautiful. However, the sleeves shrink a lot over multiple washings. I usually wear a medium but got large sizes to compensate for the shrinking. It didn't help. The sleeves are now slightly shorter than my preference.
I wear these as a layer now. Still pretty colors after the multiple washings. Not much fading.

Rated 4 out of 5 by coldincalif Size up indeed!
I read the reviews and decided to size up. Normal size is petite XL and I ordered 1X. After washing this, I compared it to the waffle henley I purchased from L.L. Bean (size is XL regular). I compared the two after washing both of them in the same load and they are EXACTLY the same size now. So yes it shrinks but I like it better than many of the L.L. Bean turtlenecks/mock turtlenecks that can be purchased.

Rated 3 out of 5 by SLactuary Great wear, but...
I usually LOVE anything LL Bean, but this mock neck falls short. By short I mean I barely come to 5'4" and the sleeves on my medium only reach to about one inch ABOVE my wristbone, although the shoulder seams are at exactly the right spot. If you are of "normal" confirmation, you may want to think about arm length.

Rated 3 out of 5 by adirondackee Shrinks like crazy
I ordered 2 of these shirts in medium and they fit perfectly but once washed it shrunk so much the sleeves were very short and the shirt uncomfortably short. I returned and purchased large - washed them and they are great. I like the colors and fabric is very nice.

Rated 4 out of 5 by momosmom love the thin stripes - colors too bright for me
The black/gray is my favorite mock neck--I have ordered six! I like thin stripes, but the other colors are too bright, though I did get one of the cranberry ones. Please make more colors, such as oatmeal/otter or other neutrals, please!
Also re solid colors for your shirts, please tone it down--the regular mock necks are too bright (yellow, coral, red: all WOWser bright!!). This is a shirt, not a beacon in case I get lost in a storm!
Otherwise love you, LLBean, especially Pima cotton shirts.

Love the feel and look of this mock. Material is very nice. May pick up another one. Got the red - color really nice and warm.

My 4th LL Bean Turtleneck and appreciate the wide range of colors & collar choices. We have a real old fashioned winter here and have been layering these with sweaters. Haven't had them long enough to notice shrinking but did note others saying to order a size up to allow shrinkage & as I enjoy soft & "roomy comfortable" so far these have fit the bill.

Rated 2 out of 5 by MissTerri Nice fabric, but it shrinks!
I'm happy with the color and sizes. However, I noticed after a few washes the sleeves have started creeping up my arm. It's to the point that the sweater is borderline too short, and I have to wear a jacket to cover the short sleeves. I expected better!

Rated 1 out of 5 by BostonRobin Shrinkage not just me?
Why sell a product that is going to shrink like this? I have some of these turtlenecks and wondered if maybe I washed them wrong... ? Now I see others with the same issue.
