Women's Petite Long Sleeve Merino Rib Turtleneck
Basic & Versatile
This sweater is my favorite cold weather staple! I have a few colors, so excited to find it on sale, so I got more! Yes, it is thin, but this is exactly what I want in a wool turtleneck. A tank underneath takes care of the sheerness, and frankly, I always want a tank under a wool garment. Its a perfect length, too... Not too short. This sweater is nice for work in the cold weather, in a drafty office. I want to be warm, but not overheated. I want to look professional, not like I'm bulked up for a stay in a winter cabin. This can go under a blazer or stand alone. It also gets worn on the soccer sideline because it's warm but I can move in it. Because it is thin, and wool , it also breathes under a warm coat, so youre not going to struggle or sweat to death getting in your car, or going into a store or business lobby. I hope LE continues making this classic sweater!

This light weight Merino wool is terrific. Have 3 - and can put thermal under, pull over, or jacket or vest. It is so adaptable. Takes up little room for packing and looks, and feels great. More colors? I'd buy them all.
M " Go To" for wintery days.

This sweater is thin and a nice weight for layering.
I ordered a size up after reading other reviews and the fit was perfect. No see thru issues and it didn't cling to the weght arou I nd my middle.

Fabric is very lightweight
I bought this in the heather grey in my usual Lands End size (i.e., a size down from everywhere else) and the fit is great. As other reviewers have mentioned the fabric is very lightweight, almost sheer. When I want a turtleneck, it's because it's chilly out -- so I always have to layer another sweater or blazer over this.

Nice, but discrepancy in sizes!
I bought this sweater in black and absolutely loved it. It fit perfectly, wasn't real heavy, and really looked good with the XR Unique Tweed Pencil Skirt that I bought from here. So I bought the red heather and the wine heather in the same size. Tried them both on and they were way too long and way too big. They look terrible with a skirt! I guess I'll wear them over jeans around the house. I am very disappointed! Don't think I'd recommend them because of the discrepancy in sizes. But many are sold out so I am curious about how they fit on others.

Too flimsy for turtleneck to stay up!
I read the reviews and should have listened, but I just couldn't believe LE would make something with THAT poor level of quality. The material is like liquid. It's so flimsy the turtleneck cannot stay up; it falls down and pools around your neck like a mini cowl neck. Unbelieveably poor quality from LE and I have been buying LE regularly for over 20 years. So disppointed I had to return it, first time ever return for poor quality.

thin but warm
It is form fitting and at first I thought it would be too flimsy. But it is so warm that it would be unwearable if it was heavier. I love it. I ordered in black and have not had to layer it, but a black bra is ideal.

soft but too sheer/thin
This is a super-soft turtle - but much too sheer to wear as a single layer (you can see the lace detailing on a nude bra). It isn't a sizing issue as I bought a size up so it would fit looser. The material truly is very thin and in the bronze heather color, you can see lingerie details that aren't meant to be easily seen. I would still recommend having one - but solely as a layering option.
