    1. If only we could get those Skyr tutles of old, you could turn that turtle up and it would hug the neck just right and stay there, no scrunching or flopping. Here's how old I am, I remember ordering my Skyr turtles from Carrol Reed Ski Shop!

    4. It's hard to believe the years that have flown by so fast, but I loved and miss the Carrol Reed Ski Shop! ...those adorable boiled wool cropped jackets!!

    1. The turtleneck came from L.L. Bean a few years back. The color is Glen Green.

  4. Just curious...do you find that you need to size up with LLB turtlenecks to compensate for shrinkage?

  5. I still have most of my Skyr turtlenecks from the late 1970's and early 1980's and I still wear them though they have faded and shrunk up from the bottom. I miss Carrol Reed as well; loved the turtle necks, sweaters and Tretorns (they were still made in France).

  6. Tretorn was sold by Puma in 2016. The new owner has improved quality greatly, but has a mixed track record on appearance/style. Sticking to the classic Nylite in the classic colors is best

  7. I bought both that pink and glen green turtleneck from seeing them on the original photos on this website when they were first featured. The green I like to much I did some 'gentle stockpiling' and bought a second (as well as a Boat and Tote they had with that trim.) Really pretty colors. --EM
