Today I’m giving away this long sleeved, grey turtle neck. It is an example of a great plan poorly executed. The neck is nice and big and sits just away from your skin so it doesn’t strangle you, which some turtle necks do. The problem is that it’s a really thin knit so it isn’t really warm. It also has a little spandex or lycra in it so I had that artificial fibre reaction. It makes me too hot if I wear it under a winter sweater and way too hot if I wear it skiing, which was what I bought it for. I’m never just right in this turtle neck, either cold or boiling. I’m starting to think that techno fabrics really aren’t for me. The best thing to wear skiing is washable wool long underwear from MEC. You just can’t beat it. I have two tops and one bottom and I wore them every time I skied this winter – perfect.
One of my sisters has it now. Hopefully it will get more use.
