Rated 5 out of 5 by Grandmaof18 Good looks with comfort
Such a practical layer. The silk is light but offers warmth. This is a replacement; a previous purchase needed to be updated. These are especially good for travel; easy to roll up and pack.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Goodmimi Disappointed
I purchased the silk underwear top for my granddaughter to layer for a winter camping trip. I was surprised to find how thin and delicate the material is. It feels like a pair of nylon stockings and must be washed very carefully. The material feels like it could snag very easily. I have to admit that I had no feedback from my granddaughter regarding the warmth factor, although I did not hear any complaints.

Rated 3 out of 5 by mlyford silk underware, turtleneck
Item is VERY THIN. I had hoped to wear it alone, but must wear it under another top. Disappointing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Imateacher2 transparent
Maybe I missed the part of the description that said that this item is very nearly transparent. I had thought I might use this turtleneck as outerwear, using a long, open blouse as a jacket for the perfect layering. If I had known, I would still have made the purchase but in white. I still really like this turtleneck. The silk is quite light and also warm, but not suffocatingly so. It is so very easy to pack, and is ideal for any kind of winter travel, anywhere in the US.

Rated 3 out of 5 by SJDC good liner
Thin material, and it shrank when hand washed. Snags easily. Ordered a medium and it fit (true to size once washed). Seems like it will work as a liner for itchy sweaters.

Rated 5 out of 5 by swvamtngirl Good value
I only buy silk underwear from L L Bean. They cost a little more but they are well worth it. They are warm and since they are silk they fit comfortably under any other garments. I also purchased 2 of the silk pants. The quality is much better than others I have seen. These recent purchases are to finally replace my other silks from L L Bean which I bought many years ago.

Rated 1 out of 5 by SnowshoeladyGrandRap too sheer and completely see-through
Got this turtleneck for wearing as a base layer. On the box it says "lightweight" which it does NOT say in the description. It's totally sheer - you cannot wear this alone. So if you are coming in from your activity you cannot remove your sweater and wear this around the house. Too sheer it should say "lightweight" in the description if that is what they are sending. I am returning it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Katie12 Perfect for itch reducing
I love to wear this under a sweater, but it is very sheer! I would give it 4-5 stars if I could wear it with v-necks sweaters. Turtleneck or high crew neck only. I do love it for itch reduction under a wooly cowl neck sweater.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Connn Good items for winter
I was so glad to finally find this at LL BEAN as I'd gotten t as a gift from my sister in Mich. about 25 yrs. ago and remembered it and I still had a old silk turtle neck. It's so nice now not only for cold weather but to wear as a layer look too. love it! I may get a white one too, just got another black one. Thanks LL BEAM
