Unisex Long Sleeve Turtleneck in Lightweight Filament Silk
Great as base layer or over a cami
Unisex XS works for me: 5'5", 125, female. It's too sheer to wear on its own, but I'm navy it looks fine over a cami. It will a great layering piece for the office, since the temperature fluctuates throughout the day. Silk pieces can be worn than once without getting stinky, they dry quickly and pack small, so always good for travel. I bought this item on clearance, so it was a steal!

Neck too big and sleeves shrunk
The neck on the unisex models even in an XS are too big and stretch more after just a few washes. Also, the sleeves shrunk by 3". I do have an XS is a non unisex version which fits great. If you're a female, don't buy the unisex.

Love this top. Great under sweaters.
I have been buying this top in a wide range of colors for years. It's soft, light and comfortable. Durable if properly laundered. Can't live without it.

I was looking for a light-weight turtleneck to wear under some of my lighter weight winter sweaters...or for sweaters with a low neck. This turtleneck is exactly what I was looking for. The neck is super comfortable, and the silk feels wonderful next to my skin. It is also long so it stays tucked in. It is true that this is "light-weight" and you can even see through it a little. So, it is better as a layering piece than as a turtleneck you might wear by itself. I have one in black, and I wear it all the time. It's held up thru repeated washings #altho I wash it in cold on delicate cycle#. I'm going to order one or two more in different colors.

INITIALLY FELT GREAT AND THE FIT WAS VERY GOOD. AFTER THE FIRST COUPLE OF WASHINGS, THE NECK HAD LOST ITS ELASTCITY,
THE SLEEVES SHRUNK BY 3/4. AND THE COLOR FADED. IT IS BEING REGULATED TO THE DONATE PILE!

I bought three of these YEARS ago, and have worn them lots. Our office is FREEZING - and this year, a light bulb finally went off and I've been wearing one under another turtleneck and a jacket or heavy sweater! What a difference! Sometimes, I still need a scarf over my legs and little mitties on my hands, but JUST LOVING my silks!
One has more runs than material - so I'm ordering new!
Thanks for keeping me warm, WinterSilks!

Lovely to wear, not a good value product.
The fabric is excellent for layering, feels heavenly on the skin. Light colors fade quickly, white quickly becomes grayish. Not durable--garment loses its shape surprisingly quickly. After one season of wear this turtleneck is relegated to second tier- best-for hikiing -and home chore status. Hey QC department--work on this!

Neck stretches quickly
I like the weight since I live in CA. The problem I dislike is the neck stretches out of shape after 2-3 wearings.
