Rated 5 out of 5 by LLBeanBeliever Best Turtleneck Ever!
I've been wearing Bean's t-necks for several decades. They fit perfectly and look great dressed up or down. And I appreciate that the neck isn't tight and constricting. They array of colors matches Bean items I've had for years, and they resist pills and fading like no other t-necks I've every bought. Way to go, Bean!

Rated 2 out of 5 by LLBBC Considerable shrinkage
The fabric is nice which is the only reason I gave it a 2. I ordered it because I had a $10 gift card so it made for an economical purchase. Sadly, there was a considerable amount of shrinkage after washing. I even washed it on the "hand wash" cycle on my high efficiency washer that has not shrunk other delicate items. Because of past experiences with LL Bean turtlenecks I decided to measure this one before I washed it so I would have exact dimensions. The length shrunk just under 2 inches. All of the other dimensions showed significant shrinkage as well. Fortunately I ordered a size larger to accommodate for this but it now is just barely the right size for me. I wish that LL Bean would insist that their supplier(s) preshrink all cottons used in their products. I have shopped LL Bean for years but I will not purchase turtlenecks from them again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by LLBeanShopperDeluxe Shrinks After Single Wash
Should have listened to other posters. This turtleneck shrank so much after first wash that I can only wear it under sweaters and even then the short, tight sleeves make it uncomfortable. I have many many older turtlenecks from LLB that did not shrink and which I am still wearing after years of washing/drying. After a single wash (in cold water, gentle dry) this is now too short in sleeves and body. Very disappointed. LLB - please read these reviews and return to using material that does not shrink! I would be willing to pay a little more for a turtleneck that held it's shape and size after washing.

Rated 2 out of 5 by XtraDaisy Not the quality I am used to
I have bought many LL Bean turtlenecks over the years. The most recent ones are a disappointment. I have washed them in cold water and dried them on the low setting. The sleeves are now 2 inches too short and the body comes to just barely below my waist. I won't be buying anymore.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Springermom1 Nice turtleneck, but...
This is a comfortable, well made shirt except for one problem. Strangely, the care label is sewn into the side seam at waist level. This is annoying, and could be easily fixed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RJOS Outstanding Cotton Turtlenecks
I just received another Interlocking Cotton Turtleneck in Bright Plum Heather. The color is beautiful and the fit is perfect ( pet. med.)
I have several other I bought last year and could not be happier with the fit and style. If washed properly ( cold water, like colors and put in the dryer) they have MINIMAL shrinkage. They have been worn over and over again and always look great.
LL Bean - please don't change anything about them,

I love these turtlenecks!!! They fold over at the neck and come up high enough so it doesn't look like a mock turtleneck. Also equally important is the sleeves have cuffs on the wrist. This is major as when wearing a sweater or other shirt over it, I want the sleeve to stay down instead of riding up my arm and constantly needing to be pulled down. My only complaints are I wish the sleeves were a bit longer and that they offered more colors. I wear a medium and the sleeves just barely come to my wrist. Since this seems to be a common thing among tops in general maybe there could be a long and short as has been done with pants

by Redmills Too much shrinkage
I have been an LL Bean customer for over 30 years and this is the worst item I have ever purchased from them. I bought 2 XL size of this turtleneck at the end of October from their Burlington VT store, and with the warm weather we've had I haven't been able to wear one until the other day. I bought XL figuring that after I wash and dried it would shrink a little and I would probably end up with a large. Well, I didn't believe how much it actually shrunk; 3 inches in length, 4 inches around the body, 3 inches in sleeve length, and 2 inches around the arms.They state right in their description that the fabric keeps its size, shape and color with every wash. It also said to machine wash and dry. I am very disappointed with this turtleneck.

Rated 1 out of 5 by huntegreen too short
This turtleneck started out short in length and then got even shorter when washed. Now I see it is pretty obvious that the model in the catalogue has stretched the shirt down to make it look longer. I cannot bend over the least bit without it gapping in back.

The interlock Turtlenecks are a warm and cozy cotton a bit thicker
that the other Turtlenecks offered. For a very cold day they also offer a cuffed sleeve. The plum color is truly vibrant in it's purple color and is cheery for a winter day.
