Rated 5 out of 5 by LoveYourPockets Pima Cotton - Well worth the money
This is exactly as described in catalog and on-line: silky inside & out. I prefer 100% Pima to the shirts with spandex in collar & cuffs, especially turtlenecks. Your pima cotton turtleneck holds up in laundry for years and years. I have some that I have worn for more than 4 years. The fit has not changed.

I am surprised and disappointed with the amount of shrinkage after washing.

While I still love the material and INITIAL fit of all the pima shirts from LLB, I am so terribly disappointed with the shrinkage that happens every - single -time!!
With no exceptions, EVERY single pima top I have ordered from LLB over the last 3 years (or so) has shrunk at least 2 inches in length and at least 1.5 inches in width after the first wash - even using almost no heat in the dryer. And they continue to shrink, until after about the 5th or 6th wash, they are almost like the old crop tops that barely cover the waist. I am slightly above average height at 5'-7", but this is just ridiculous - and costly. Who can afford to have to replace their clothing after only a month or 2 of wear???
I have older pima shirts from LLB - probably at least 6 years old - that still fit exactly as they did the day I got them, so I know that Bean must have changed the fabric at some point since that time.
PLEASE - PLEASE either go back to the older fabric - if possible - or start offering these shirts in sizes for taller women - that goes for Bean's regular tees, too. I think you'd make a whole lot of ladies very happy if you did.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Gumbo33 Nice Fabric
I ordered a Pima turtleneck in Feb. 2015, it was not the same as the one I bought last year. I compared them and realized the older one had more stretchability than the new. That little bit of give was much nicer. I may return it for a larger size or just return it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Brer10 They shrink
I do, like all the others, love the fit, feel and color. Especially like the printed labels...BUT, I order large, 4 of them. Tried them on when they arrived. PERFECT!!! Washed, cold water, dried in dryer (per instructions). Every one of them shrank a full size. Hugely disappointing.

I have several of Bean's Pima cotton tees in various styles. They are so comfortable and fit so nice, They are longer in style which I like. No tendency to ride up. They drape nicely. I have other tees from LLBean with other cotton. They are nice quality and heavier. However, I prefer this one to the others. They layer very nicely without any bulk.

It is hard to find a turtle neck with a quality fabric and nice fit but this one was an excellent combination.

This Tneck was as good as I expected. The medium blue is a good color. The shirt, as a first layer, is warm and mostly comfortable. A little shorter turtleneck would fit me better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jackie08 Pima Cotton Shirt
The fabric is very soft, silky smooth and very pleasant to wear. It is easy to care too: after the drier it is ready to wear, no ironing necessary. I own 2 shirts like these and I have just bought 2 more for my family members as gifts too. I am very happy with these purchases.

I purchased two women's Pima Cotton Turtlenecks a few weeks ago, they were perfection in EVERY possible way (size, color, neck comfort, overall comfort, and SUPER SOFT feel).
